Vegas Pro 17 Version Update Available

The latest update to video editing package Vegos Pro versio 17 is now available. Featuring 10 new features and 40+ bug fixes, the developers say this is one “monster of an update worth the wait”.

Build 321 as it is called, is available at https://rdir.magix.net/?page=1LGSASYSV1UH

New Features

  • The Bézier tool’s motion tracking has been upgraded to track perspective change allowing for more effective planar tracking
  • Navigation to exact timeline markers through typing the marker number on the keyboard number row now supports three-digit marker numbers
  • An option for opening a media file in VEGAS Post has been added to the event hamburger button
  • The VEGAS Screen Capture utility now provides the ability to save a capture project file which can then be imported into VEGAS Pro so that all captured media is imported onto the timeline on separate tracks and synchronized for instant editing
  • An extension has been added to automatically adjust the length of an event after applying a playback rate change with the Slow Motion OFX plug-in
  • The Warp Flow transition has been optimized to provide interesting results with a wider variation between the video clips involved and more gracefully defaults to a crossfade in extreme cases where warp flow calculations cannot be made
  • The Video Stabilizer now automatically determines and uses the most suitable reference frame for freeze motion mode
  • Uploading to social media sites process now uses the efficient rendering of the MAGIX AVC/AAC file type for faster rendering and uploading process
  • The PiP Copy script now supports copying tracked perspective motion from the Bézier tracking information to the PinP plug-in
  • Menu options for opening a file in FXhome HitFilm have been consolidated for more understandable presentation
  • Several improvements and refinements have been made to the Smart Split feature including the addition of a preference that enables the user to change the default transition length
  • VEGAS Pro now supports NVENC-based lossless encoding templates on qualifying Nvidia hardware

  • You can now undo adding the Color Grading Panel plug-in to an event
  • Replacing a Main Timeline storyboard item that is a duplicate no longer removes all items that reference the same media
