Introducing Sony Vegas Pro 9
Pro Video, Audio & Blu-ray Disc Creation Software
Vegas Pro 9 software has extensive capture, import, and export support for video and audio. With the Vegas Pro 9 collection you can efficiently edit and process DV, AVCHD, HDV, SD/HD-SDI, and all XDCAM™ formats in real time, fine-tune audio with precision, and author surround sound, dual-layer DVDs.
The NEW! Vegas Pro 9 interface provides a fully customizable workspace for accomplishing a wide range of production requirements. Dock multiple windows and save layouts to fit certain tasks; nest Vegas Pro projects within the timeline, design and save keyboard commands, and use application scripting to automate repetitive tasks. System-wide media management produces maximum efficiency. Network rendering saves time by using multiple computers and networked drive arrays to render complex projects.
Powerful Editing Tools
Efficiently edit and arrange events on the Vegas Pro timeline using drag-and-drop operations. Apply real time effects, transitions, envelopes, color changes, reverse, time-stretching and motion effects. Expertly edit complex SD or HD long-form projects using mouse or keyboard trimming along with powerful ripple editing modes.
Real Time Playback and Nondestructive Editing
Playback and edit video effects, transitions and composites on-the-fly without rendering while viewing each change instantly on external monitors in real time. Vegas software takes advantage of the PC's processing power by caching complex processes or effects directly to RAM for smooth frame-rate playback and previews.
Default Layouts for Video Editing Make Vegas Pro 9 Easier to Learn & Use
Vegas Pro 9 software gives you the option of several default layouts with windows arranged for various editing tasks. These layouts can be further modified and saved for a truly customized layout and workflow designed for the way you work. New in version 9 are the Audio Mixing and Color Correction layouts.
NEW! Support for Gigapixel-Size Pictures
With Vegas Pro 9 software you can pan, scan, and crop extremely large images to create a movie sequence while maintaining HD resolution. Vegas Pro 9 software also supports video stills from professional-level camcorders and still cameras that take stitch multiple pictures together to form a large single image.
NEW! Enhanced Native XDCAM and AVCHD Support
The new Device Explorer feature enables users to quickly browse the contents of both XDCAM EX devices and AVCHD cameras, allowing users to selectively import files and use them natively, without conversion to an intermediate format. Vegas Pro 9 also allows users to directly capture XDCAM-compatible MXF files from supported SD/HDSDI sources. The new capture-compress function allows broadcast editors to convert their legacy SD or HD tape-based material, including Digital Betacam, HDCAM, and DVCPRO 100, into high-quality, IT-friendly MXF clips conforming to the Sony XDCAM MPEG2 standard.
NEW! Open and Edit RED ONE™ Files on the Timeline
Vegas Pro 9 software has advanced support for 4K workflows, including support for RED ONE™ files.
Premium Encoding Tools

Updated Sony AVC Rendering Templates
Vegas Pro 9 software includes several new templates for rendering to formats supported by online video sharing sites such as YouTube™.
