Vegas Pro 20 got a big free update – and adopts one of the best tools in the Adobe Premiere Pro.
Two months after the first start, video editing software introduces a host of new features that aim to “further increase the power, efficiency and color grading collaboration right on the timeline,” says Vegas developer Magix.
In addition to the latest color correction tools, there are several subscriber-only features, including smarter integration of Vegas desktops and mobile devices video editing applications.
What’s new in Vegas Pro 20?
It is in the Color Grading panel that the most noticeable changes take place. Magix has filled the space with new color correction tools for creating and tweaking colors. The most important of these is the new color selector for color curves, which simplifies the choice of colors to adjust and the hue and saturation curve.
Designed to give you more control over how videos look, the tool allows users to “change the saturation of anything from the entire video to a very specific hue in the video, and they can pull the saturation from a specific color to mute a color effect or tweak the saturation to get a specific pop color,” he said. Magix.
Continuing in the spirit of giving users more control, the Vegas video preview window now offers up to 2000x magnification. The company found it ideal for fine-tuning color gradation correction.
Online collaboration has also been improved with the addition of a commenting tool. When users share projects via File Drop, users can use the new text box to offer insight and feedback.
Artificial intelligence continues its technological conquest – though don’t expect Adobe Sensei-level features here. Instead, Vegas pro introduces AI-generated thumbnails into shared projects, which makes it easier to find the right clips and improves overall performance and performance.
And there’s plenty for subscribers video collection and audio resources, mobile to timeline feature for transferring media from phone to desktop application, and faster File Drop service. However, since accessibility is a top priority for filmmakers, it’s the Premiere Pro style speech-to-text tool which stands out. Adobe’s video editor is great at automatically creating subtitles thanks to its AI integration, so we’ll be curious to see how well Vegas fares against the backdrop alternative to Premiere Pro in this critical area.
