Vegas 5.0 Wish List

I recently read that NAB was introducing the new version of Vegas 5.0. Does anyone have any special wish list that have for the new version. I for one would like more 3d effects and the ability for nesting tracks.

-A decent mask tool! Rectangular and oval masks are a bit awkward for rotoscoping...

-Velocity envelopes that modify video PLUS audio. In V4 the envelope affects only the video events and leaves the audio track unchanged.

-Better region managment. I usually capture full tapes at once and create regions. I would like to be able to create folders and put regions of various files into them.

-HD support up to 2K. Realtime of course.

Well, it is a wish list after all:

-everything that After Effects and Combustion offers and Vegas doesn't. Most of all trackers and stabilizers.

Cheers, Peter

Upgrade plug-in API to support DirectX 9, DirectX7 is way out of date. With DX9, it would be easier to write those particle and other 3d effects and take adavantage of your existing Hardware.

Also capture /edit support support for any DirectShow codec.
10bit color and higher support for all 2d and 3d effects.

Stay away from a proprietary plug-in API.

just my wishes.

I'd like to see a more customizable interface or at least a way to emulate the look of Premiere. This would make it much easier for people coming from Premiere to get into Vegas. I've been using Premiere since 4.2 and can't get into the Vegas interface. I've got Vegas 4, which was given to me by a mate who bought a Mac, and I've played with it a bit but it feels kinda strange.

Adrian, it really is very logical in it's approach. Think of it this way: Every track is identical! Naturally some only contain audio while some only contain video but they all behave exactly the same.

There ARE many differences in HOW they do things as well. For example, the "razor" tool is not needed - Vegas uses "S". The timeline is in a different position (top instead of bottom). The Beginner's Corner section of my newsletters attempt to present the basics to people new to Vegas.

Adrian,

I don't get it ... You can mod the Vegas interface quite a bit. They even put in the A/B roll interface of Premiere...

One of the best things I like about Vegas is that it has the Vegas interface... for SONY to waste their efforts on making Vegas more like Preimere is not a new feature that a lot of Vegas users want.

Premiere is Available for your system ... use it. It has the Premiere interface as well! :)

Regards,

Chris

I would like to see smarter rendering of stills. When you render 10 seconds of a still that doesn't move and has no FX, Vegas should recognize that and just copy the frame the required number of times rather than rendering each duplicate frame.
