Sony Vegas Pro 13 Edit delivers pure Vegas Pro core technology in a cost-effective package. New features include advanced archival tools, new audio metering options, and full synchronization with the Vegas Pro Connect mobile iPad companion app. Vegas Pro 13 Edit offers more formats, more workflows, and more creative control than ever before.
Edit SD, HD, 2K, and 4K material with drag-and-drop functionality or traditional 3-point and 4-point editing modes. The Vegas Pro 13 interface provides an impressive array of innovative tools and thoughtful touches with a fully customizable workspace for accomplishing a wide range of production tasks. Nest Vegas Pro projects within the timeline, customize and save keyboard commands, and use application scripting to automate repetitive tasks.
Online collaboration mode enables reviewers and editors to jointly control and comment on projects—simultaneously and in real time—in Vegas Pro 13. Multiple reviewers, each with their own iPad, can seek, start, stop, and pause playback. They can also drop frame-accurate markers and notes directly onto the Vegas Pro timeline. Editors can use this direct feedback to shape and finish projects. Offline collaboration mode enables reviewers to download project proxies onto their iPads and then review them anywhere and anytime, even when they don't have access to the full Vegas Pro project. Just as with online collaboration, reviewers use frame-accurate markers and notes to document their feedback. Later, reviewers sync the proxies on their iPads with Vegas Pro 13 and transfer feedback directly to the master project for direct editor access.
Perfect for the editing suite, the Vegas Pro Connect gesture-driven control surface does away with small touch targets, allowing editors to keep their eyes on the prize and stay focused in the creative zone at all times.
Vegas Pro is known for being a rapid editing environment. The latest version expands on this with the introduction of a multi-tool paradigm which organizes frequently used tools in a convenient pop-up menu directly below the timeline to provide fast access for a more efficient editing workflow.
Open the new Loudness Meters and tweak your mixes to maximize audio dynamic range while you maintain consistent -23 LUFS Integrated levels and create EBU R-128/CALM Act compliant renders that will pass unattenuated through every stage of any contemporary broadcaster's signal path. The result: perfection, with your audio delivered to viewers in a state as dynamic and pristine as when it was rendered–exactly as you intended–regardless of playback system.
Organize and archive your completed production along with its associated media with the flexible Archive feature. Archive all media associated with a project or only the media used on the timeline, including nested projects. Automatically clear the Project Media window of unused material just prior to archiving in order to maximize storage space. Smart renaming prepares your projects for export to other applications.
Vegas Pro 13 features extensive tools for the creation of 5.1 surround mixes. Apply keyframes to the surround panning of tracks and buses to mix the most demanding DVD and Blu-ray Disc™ soundtracks, while never leaving the Vegas Pro environment. Apply 5.1-channel audio effects to the master bus for enhanced control over surround mixes. Export projects as discrete tracks for post encoding, or encode directly to Dolby Digital® surround with the Dolby Digital-certified AC-3 Pro encoder. In addition, the DVD Architect Pro software imports AC-3 files for multichannel 5.1 DVD and Blu-ray Disc creation.
