VEGAS Pro 20 Launched – New Cloud Features and Action VFX Assets

VEGAS Pro 20 hits the shelves and with it not only VEGAS Pro, but also a wide range of additional tools, assets and VFX templates, depending on the chosen tier: VEGAS Edit, Pro or Post. Available as a subscription or perpetual license.

With the launch of VEGAS Pro 20, VEGAS Creative Software has added new cloud capabilities to its collaboration platform, VEGAS Hub. With its File Drop feature, you can upload files directly to VEGAS Hub from any connected mobile device or desktop computer via internet.

From there, you can import them directly into a project via the VEGAS Hub Explorer window. VEGAS Pro 20 also provides automatic project collections that bring together all the assets in a project for quick organization.

VEGAS Pro 20 adds new features to the Color Grading panel that allow you to fine-tune color throughout your project. Tint adjustment color curves make it easy to isolate a specific color in a video and convert it to a completely different color, while temperature and hue controls make it easy to dial in the right white balance.

In regard to audio post-production, VEGAS Pro 20 offers support for the industry-standard VST3, which integrates software effects devices into digital audio workstations. This new feature will be in beta at launch and available for users to test.
