Turn shaky footage into smooth professional looking video. The video stabilization engine has been rebuilt from the ground up with our state-of-the-art technology, resulting in a feature that is easy to use and provides smooth results every time.
Planar Motion Tracking
Not every object sits square to the camera. Your motion tracking should account for that. Now, Planar Motion Tracking does. Track and pin text or apply color grading to objects moving in perspective, turning toward you or away from you and changing dimensions as perspective changes.
Organize projects and speed up your workflow with nested timelines that you create from any events in your main timeline. And you can still access your nested timelines as independent projects, so it's easy to share a portion of your project with a colleague while you maintain control over the master project.
Smart Split Edit
Removing sections of clips means one thing: jump cuts. Now, VEGAS has you covered with Smart Split. Choose the section you want to remove, and Smart Split not only removes it, but transitions the remaining events together and hides the jump cut with the new Warp Flow transition. A great, easy way to hide jump cuts.
Dynamic storyboard and timeline interaction
The dynamic storyboard workflow might just change the way you edit from now on. Quickly assemble rough cuts and alternate versions in an uncomplicated storyboard environment. Changes made to the main storyboard are reflected instantaneously in the timeline. In reverse, edits on the timeline can be synchronized to the storyboard with only one click, or automatically. Additional storyboards can also be created and used for experimental edits, alternate sequencing, or to keep track of different sections within your video.
Bézier Masking OFX-Plug-in
With the powerful, flexible Bézier Masking plug-in, you can create up to five different masks, using oval, rectangle or custom shapes. These can then either cut a section of the video out to reveal different video beneath, or have an effect applied within them – such as color grading or blur – making it possible to blur someone's face while leaving the rest of the video in focus. Used in conjunction with the new motion tracker, the mask can move along with an object during the course of the video.
Visualize Stabilization motion tracks
Stabilization can be a bit of a “dark art.” But now the Motion Track visualization tool helps take the mystery out of establishing your optimal stabilization settings. Activate the visualizations to provide an analysis of the video's motion so you can decide what settings will give the best results.
Stabilization on event level
Does your footage have a case of the shakes that makes it unusable? No problem. Now streamline your workflow even more than ever with world-class video stabilization on the timeline at the event level. No more waiting for an entire media clip to process. Quickly stabilize only what you need.
Complete HDR color support
Work with industry-leading HDR tools in VEGAS Pro. Grade your colors with HDR grading tools while previewing in HDR either within VEGAS or on external HDR hardware. All powered by GPU-based open color I/O processing and with new ACES 1.1 color standards. HDR10 and HLG support from beginning to end.
Unified Color Grading workflow
VEGAS Pro provides an efficient, logical color grading workflow. Adjust colors with sensitive color wheels and curves. Advanced options like a logarithmic exposure control, adjustable Vectorscope skin tone line and combined RGB Parade display enable you to grade your colors more precisely.
Improved Color Curves
Color curves are an indispensable tool for professionals, and now VEGAS Pro features even more powerful curves. We’ve added automatic color balance to our color curves tool. Apply automatic corrections with the option for manual control to adjust your colors fully as desired.
Threetimes Boris FX plug-in power
The highly sophisticated Lens Flare 3D visual effect allows you to create many different styles and looks, like traditional lens flares which occur when a point light source is turned toward a camera lens, or even spectacular special effects that are often seen in science fiction movies. Lots of preset looks serve as a useful starting point in generating a customized look which can be saved and reused on future projects and comps. And with the integrated Motion Tracker you can automatically lock or track the Lens Flare to a specific element in your scene.
Use the power of artificial intelligence to stylize your videos so that they look as though they were painted in the style of famous artists, such as Picasso or van Gogh.
To bring archival footage vividly to life, instantly colorize black and white video with the Colorization filter driven by artificial intelligence and machine learning.
SOUND FORGE Pro
SOUND FORGE Pro will greatly enhances your audio editing and mastering capability. Import your dialogue, sound fx or music into SOUND FORGE Pro for precise editing, audio restoration like noise removal and final mix delivery. Use industry-standard metering and visualization tools. Edit your audio powerfully and quickly in a seamless round-trip edit session between VEGAS Pro and SOUND FORGE Pro.
iZotope RX Elements is also part of SOUND FORGE Pro.
As an stand-alone editor you can easily resolve common recording issues such as clipping, humming, clicks and other unwanted background noise.
Please note: While VEGAS Pro 18 comes with SOUND FORGE Pro 14, the VEGAS Pro 365 subscription plan always includes the latest version of SOUND FORGE Pro that currently is 15.
UNVEIL by Zynaptiq VEGAS Edition
Improve your location sound and dialog by getting rid of excessive reverb using Zynaptiq's industry-leading de-reverberator UNVEIL. Fix poor room acoustics and enhance speech intelligibility – after the fact, easily, and with award-winning quality.
Surround sound encoding & decoding
Create surround mixes directly within VEGAS Pro. Use the panner to automate tracks and buses and produce breathtaking soundtracks for DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. Apply surround effects to track level or directly to the sum. This way you can exercise full control over your mix. To finish, export your project for encoding into Surround format.
Advanced hardware acceleration
Take advantage of hardware acceleration from modern NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards and Intel's powerful QSV (Quick Sync Video) technologies for smooth playback and fast rendering. To ensure that you can unleash the full power of your hardware, VEGAS Pro automatically configures your GPU for optimal performance and also checks to verify that your drivers are up to date.
A dynamic search field helps you to find the desired plug-ins quickly. To make it even faster, you can mark your your favorite plug-ins and show them with a single click. Filter third-party plug-ins by vendor to stay organized.
