Improved High DPI scaling
As more and more elements of the editor become compatible with High DPI monitors, you can change to High DPI mode to take advantage of an even crisper, clearer user interface on your High DPI monitor.
Edit multicamera productions intuitively and efficiently with VEGASPro. 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.
Integrated 3D adjustments
Utilize the integrated tools for basic 3D adjustments to enhance your project and ensure professional 3D results. Typical corrections include horizontal and vertical offsets, zoom discrepancies, keystone, and rotation.
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.
Automatic subtitle creation from timeline regions or a file
Speech from a video that has been transcribed and entered as named regions in your project, a text file, or a spreadsheet can be used to instantly create a subtitle track. Subtitle positions can be automatically synced to project audio events and can be edited for fine-tuning.
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.
Sony Vegas Pro dominates the space between basic video-editing software like Windows Movie Maker and professional applications like Adobe Premiere. Sony won this niche by offering professional tools and functions at a fraction of the competitors’ prices. The latest version of Vegas Pro 12 adds a good deal of improvements to an already great video editor.
Incredibly functional but a little bland, Sony Vegas Pro 12 is designed for no-nonsense editors who want to get the job done right — without all the frills. If you’re a current Vegas Pro 11 user, updating is worthwhile for the stability alone. Newcomers can expect an easier learning curve. Sony has found a nice balance between function and price, coming in well ahead of main competitor Adobe Premiere in value. However, with the introduction of Adobe’s Creative Cloud, arguments can be made for either app. Still, Vegas Pro 12 is a great choice for any price-conscious professional video editor.
