19th July 2017
Magix have announced the date for the launch of Vegas 15: 28th August 2017. They bought Vegas from Sony last year and released version 14. Apart from completely rebranding the product, the major changes since Sony’s last version were that Vegas could now export Apple ProRes QuickTime movies, had a couple of new filters including a new de-interlace filter and an improved way of rescaling footage, and Magic removed the ability to make professional Dolby Pro audio, for cost reasons, although you could still make Dolby Surround sound using a “domestic” plug-in, similar to the way most other editing programs make Dolby sound.
Information on the new features of Vegas is limited to the details contained on the post mentioned below. Magix say they will be making the interface more customisable and using Quick Sync, technology built into the most commonly used Intel I5 and i7 processors, to accelerate encoding and decoding of footage.
There is no information on upgrade pricing as yet. You can read more on the Magix forums: https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/vegas-pro-15-release-date–107253/
