    I too will echo what everyone else has said. This is great news! and I love the fact that you are opening communication with us users.

    Sony has been my bread and butter since version 3 and I was ready to walk and go to Premiere. I run my Video company at night, but during the day, I teach a video pathways program at a high school where I teach upwords of 120 students. Vegas has been the goto for the past 5 years since it was not only a great tool, but affordable for the students. We used Movie Studio, but I run Pro for my business. One thing that bothered me in version 13 of Movie Studio was that the fade became a separate tool, and you had to select it separate rather than leaving it alone and making tracks natively respond when you grabbed their corners like in Pro and how it was in the past. I just straight up liked it better when Movie Studio didn’t have a different interface look from Pro. I think v11 had a better feel.

    I’d love to see some smother export options as it’s always seemed clunky when I have had to do work in After Effects and tried exporting for Premiere. So I’d love to see that ironed out a little bit more. I’d also give a thumbs up to having multiple timelines open in one instance (someone else mentioned that already I think). I think Premiere calls it sequences, rather than the nesting option of current – I’ve never had that work to my advantage.

    Also, the text editor needs to be rethought. I end up going back to Legacy text and using that as I always felt that the number and settings were always relative as far as lining things up in the new text editor. It’s just not as smooth as when I use After Effects, and I would love to see that rethought.

    I’d also really like to see DVD Architect kept alive. I still use that every week for clients for DVDs and Blu-rays and would love to see some simple things added to it like a rotation option on objects.

    All-in-all I’m just glad that someone who cares about the product is at the helm and has great vision for the future!

    So excited to see what comes!

    Totally agree with Neal Barlow for DVD Architect, and possibility of updating the Blu-ray authoring capability, especially for the Top Menu and Quick Menu.

    Neal Barlow has a good point in his analisys. I’m not the most active forum user precisely but I use Vegas from the time when it was an audio editor only. These last years I saw that Vegas was only a tool to support the new Sony video formats and the tiny annoying things that needed to be adressed were left behind.

    Things so tiny like going directly to the folder where the main project is saved when you are going to render instead of going to the folder you saved last project. It’s a small thing but annoying. And like this there are a lot more that doesn’t make sense, heritage from the very old versions. Real productivity was not a priority. Well, at least not according to what Sony understands ‘productivity’. The multiple timelines, the cursor doing weird things…

    I’m always skeptical when a good piece of software is bought. I saw that with discreet Combustion. A software that was left dying of its own age and whose last versions where merely two plugins more than the previous. Vegas is one of the best editors and can be the best. The team now behind of development is great but it has an enormous task. I hope they can delivery what editors need: the old Vegas Philosophy that Sonic Foundry had before Sony acquired the products.

    I encourage you to do it.

    Thank you very much for that communication.

    Super stoked to read this. I am a professional user. I’ve been semi stressing out about finding a suitable alternative to Vegas Pro, but now I don’t have to 🙂

    One point would like to know that if you have plan to do development in order to make the Decklink Mini convertor card to work ? or the new cards from black magic or AJA?

    [Nigel O'Neill] “As a semi-pro editor, feature-wise I would like to know if Magix and the creator of many Vaast products, John Rofrano, will continue to support the plugin’s, particularly the Ultimate S Pro tool set which I swear by for multicam editing.”

    I can answer that. 😉

    VASST Software will continue to support Vegas Pro and Movie Studio under MAGIX ownership. I’ve already started these discussions with Gary Rebholz. We’ll announce more as we know more but our intent is to continue support for our products.

    Love all the news and support from Magix and am greatly anticipating what they do. Here’s a few of my suggestions.

    -Better running text plugins with more options. Even the Legacy text plugin is slow. A freakin’ text editor! Deleting or editing text involves a lot of latency. With any of the other text plugins it runs like molasses.
    -Better chroma key plugin. Right now it’s very rudimentary.
    -More options and flexibility with transitions
    -Ability to make “disable resample” on events available by default or to set them by certain parameters (like when I have video of one framerate mixed with video of another framerate that will be output to the second framerate). Also, disable resample as an option across media, not just events.
    -Fix the bugs! Vegas is a lot more stable for me than previous versions, but please check bug reports and crashes.
    -Sony was notoriously unresponsive to technical support questions. Please be the opposite (you’re shaping up to be that way already. I appreciate it!)


    -MARKET VEGAS. Promote it. Show you stand behind it (which Sony did not do). We could use all the support that we’d get if Vegas is actually backed by Magix so that it becomes a wider used tool in filmmaking and videography. We all benefit if it’s more industry standard, powerful, and widely adopted. I happily contribute a little to that by including info in the description of every YouTube video I make saying I edit my videos on Vegas and link to the site to buy it (and I will update this for Magix)

    -Better multi-cam editing functionality
    -Bit rate calculator

    Support for 3D models would be amazing. If not possible, at least a better more robust connection with Hitfilm so we can easily integrate Hitfilm’s 3D model support into our workflow.
