VEGAS, the often forgotten powerful video editor, releases VEGAS Pro 21
VEGAS Pro (the NLE FKA Sony Vegas) just released version 21.
Mocha planar tracking tool from Boris FX is directly integrated into the app. Track people and objects easily right inside VEGAS.
Z-Depth tool: Use AI to isolate objects, define foreground and background, and insert additional layers, like text behind a person. As Chaz says, “That’s where it all happens…z-space.”
Smart masking: Identify and track moving objects using AI and get a bezier mask generated, which can be plugged into your FX pipeline.
My take - marketing and in-house teams that want an all-in-one solution for editing, motion graphics, sound mixing, and color grading.
VEGAS’ price point is about half that of Adobe Creative Cloud and can do a lot out of the box without paid plugins.
It’s also for a team that doesn’t need to worry about sharing project files or collaborating with outside entities.
The catch: VEGAS is PC only.
Have you used VEGAS in the past or currently? Would love to know, just hit reply.
