Product Description for the Sony Vegas Pro 13 Suite
Vegas Pro 13 Suite is maximized for advanced video and audio editing, deep visual effects processing, total workflow customization, and disc authoring. This premier edition of Vegas Pro 13 features the core application and a host of additional tools from Sony Creative Software and its key partners to deliver the works and make it easier than ever to bring your creative visions to life.
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 that helps you accomplish 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.
Superior editing and collaboration
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.
