Combined with the improved video engine for VEGAS Capture, you have even more powerful overall hardware acceleration to work even faster.


Let your creativity flourish with new workflow improvements in VEGAS Pro. They help you find and organize your effects and third-party plug-ins more efficiently and remember where you left off in your project the next time you come back to it.

New, efficient plug-in management

Find and apply video effects and transitions faster than ever before. Use dynamic search to instantly find the specific plug-in you need. Mark your most often used plug-ins as favorites that you can view with a single click. Sort your third-party plug-ins by vendor and filter out the vendors you don’t need to see.

Project location persistence

When you close a project, VEGAS Pro remembers where you left the cursor on the timeline and returns to that exact location the next time you open the project. Never waste time trying to remember where you left off again.

Event trim handles

Never edit the wrong timeline event edge again. Easily identify the edge you want to trim and edit even faster than ever.

Incremental project save

VEGAS Pro enables you to automatically create a new project each time you save so you can experiment with creative ideas without worrying that you might ruin something you’ve already done. Simply open the incremental project file that takes you back, if you don’t like the results.

Detailed render progress dialog

Expanded details in the render dialog allow you to plan your render sessions more effectively and give you more information about the file that will result.

Exportable/importable Preference

Transfer your custom preference settings easily and quickly to a new machine or export your preferences before you install a new software update, then import them in again after the update completes. Never spend another minute on manually restoring your preferences again.


Discover the advanced toolset

Once again, VEGAS Pro stands out as an innovative leader when it comes to non-linear editing. The modern user interface delivers a completely customizable experience that provides Superior flexibility. Innovative approaches and editing tools speed up your workflow and make you more efficient and ultimately more creative. Focus on your creativity, not your tools.



Video Stabilization

Turn shaky footage into smooth, pro quality 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. Objects not square to your camera? Use Planar Motion Tracking.

Nested Timelines

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.


Editing tools to take you further

Denoise filter

Reduce low-light and other video noise to salvage grainy, unclear video footage. Transform your noisy video into sharper, cleaner more usable footage with the Denoise filter.

Flicker Control filter

Greatly reduce or even entirely remove video flickering caused by neon lights and other sources. Or use the Flicker Control filter to add video flicker as a special effect.

Screen Capture

Now record multiple computer screens and audio sources simultaneously with the Integrated Screen Capture utility. Import captured files straight to your VEGAS timeline, where they’re completely synchronized and ready to edit. Perfect for video streams, instructional videos, and more.

Multicamera Editing

Edit multicamera productions intuitively and efficiently with VEGAS Pro. Switch between a virtually unlimited number of video sources with a keyboard command or a click of your mouse. Easily transform a multicam track into an individual event for detailed editing.

Extensive backup file options

VEGAS Pro has a comprehensive list of file backup options. You can back up your work after a set time (determined in minutes, hours or days); save the current project after every edit and also save a backup file (or number of backups) after every edit. All backups can be saved to the same folder as the project file, a temporary location or any user-specified location.

Time Stretch/ Compress Shuffle Editing

CTRL+drag an event edge to stretch or compress playback.

Automatic Crossfades

Fast, smooth time-line editing. Quickly overlap timeline clip events to instantly create a crossfade between them.

Crop OFX plug-in

Get instant real-time feedback as you crop still photos or video frames with controls directly on the Video Preview window.


Color Grading

Complete HDR color support

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.

LUT Export

Easily save your color grading settings as a LUT in .cube format, and apply it to multiple clips in your project, or use it in an entirely different project. Make your color grading faster and more efficient than ever. Even share your color grading settings with members of your team.

Improved White Balance Tool

Easily set proper white and black values for your footage. To do so, VEGAS Pro searches for the brightest and darkest pixels in the clip and sets them to full white and black. Afterwards, you can manipulate the color curve separately to adjust either value or both.

Comprehensive S-Log workflow

VEGAS Pro supports S-Log and other advanced color space technology so you can take advantage of the wide color spaces of the most modern video cameras from all manufacturers.


Special Effects

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.

Exclusively in Suite

Add missing stream

Sometimes your project contains either the video or audio portion of a video clip on the timeline and you decide that you want the other portion too. This feature instantly finds the missing portion, creates an event for it and synchronizes it to the existing portion.

Multicamera Editing

Edit multicamera productions intuitively and efficiently with VEGAS Pro. Switch between a virtually unlimited number of video sources with a keyboard command or a click of your mouse. Easily transform a multicam track into an individual event for detailed editing.

Velocity Envelopes

Apply velocity envelopes from 100% reverse speed up to 1,000% (10x-speed) forward speed.

FX masking

Add a video effect or filter like Pixelate, then apply a mask to limit the effect to a specific portion of the video to obscure logos, license plates or faces without affecting the rest of the video.

Compositing modes

VEGAS Pro uses a multi-layer, top-down paradigm for compositing and masking, which enables you to assign tracks as parent or child tracks. Apply compositor effects to create stylized lighting and textured looks. An impressive array of compositing modes provides comprehensive options for visual design.
