Sony Vegas Pro 11 adds optimized GPU hardware acceleration, video stabilisation and 2D and 3D
text animations and effects.
|Vegas Pro 11 is a Windows-based OpenCL NLE, supporting the open standard for core video editing operations, video effects and rendering. Other updates include NVIDIA 3D Vision support for single-display 3D computers such as the VAIO F Series 3D laptops and L Series 3D desktops, an enhanced tool for video stabilisation, and new tools for animated titles.|
|Working with OpenCL-supported devices from AMD and NVIDIA, Vegas Pro 11 uses GPU acceleration for the core video processing engine, video effects, transitions, compositing, pan/crop, track motion and encoding, providing a significantly faster workflow. Details on video processing can be found here.
Sync Link is a function for organizing and synchronizing events on the timeline. Secondary audio and B-roll video clips can be edited independently of each other while remaining in sync with the primary clip.
Dynamic 2D and 3D text animations and effects can be created within Vegas Pro 11. Titler Pro from NewBlueFX adds stereo 3D titles, manipulating text down to character level and on the X, Y and Z axes. Stylized 2D motion can be applied to text events using the Titles and Text tool or with the ProType titler. Video Stabilization with motion analysis on all three camera axes allows users to reduce jittery or shaky video caused by handheld recording devices, and eliminate rolling shutter problems inherent in most CMOS camera imagers. Stabilization is now implemented as an OpenFX plug-in.
Following improvements to NVIDIA 3D Vision support, users can now edit on single-display 3D computers including VAIO F Series 3D laptops and VAIO L Series All-in-One 3D desktop systems. New render dialogs create for searching and filtering render templates may help speed up the workflow for finalizing output formats.
Vegas Pro 11 format support now covers stereo 3D MVC and MPO files from Sony camcorders and DSLRs without transcoding re-wrap, which can preserve image quality and save on storage. Other natively supported codecs and formats include XDCAM, XDCAM EX, HDCAM-SR, NXCAM, AVCHD, AVCCAM, RED R3D, RED EPIC, and AVC-based .MOV and RAW files from DSLRs. Native P2 support is available with an optional plug-in. Users may also render to the AVC/MP4 file format which includes progressive file download support for streaming. Vegas Pro 11 can also handle projects with multiple formats and mixed resolutions from SD to 4K. Vegas Pro 11 is available now. www.sonycreativesoftware.com
