It took some time to load but it is still there. If you don't want to wait, here it is.

Middleton, Wis. – April 7, 2014 – Sony Creative Software, a leading global provider of professional editing and authoring solutions, today announced the latest upgrade to its Vegas™ editing technology.

Vegas Pro 13 brings new collaboration tools and streamlined workflows to professional content producers faced with a wide variety of multimedia production tasks.

“Vegas Pro 13 takes giant steps toward making the total multimedia creation experience faster and easier than ever. One example is the Vegas Pro Connect iPad app, which provides a remote collaborative review process for clients and team members,” said John Freeborg, vice president of Sony Creative Software. “We are excited to announce Vegas Pro 13 at NAB and provide live presentations and in-booth demos of the new key features. In addition to technological advancements that span the production process, from ingesting to editing to archiving, we’ve created a set of phenomenal values by bundling Vegas Pro 13 with other workflow-integrated professional applications, both from Sony Creative Software and key partners.”

The Vegas Pro 13 application arrives with new features that address the state of the art in non-linear editing technology, including:

Vegas Pro Connect – Using the iPad, Vegas Pro Connect solves the collaboration challenge on video productions. Eliminate tedious written review spreadsheets and notes by moving to efficient online and offline review workflows. Coupled with a gesture driven control surface feature, Vegas Pro Connect improves editing efficiency throughout your project.
Proxy-first workflow – Shoot XDCAM footage and send proxies to the cloud using the Sony Wireless Camera Adapter. Download and edit proxies, then relink to the hi-res files for rendering.
Project Archiving – Archive all media associated with a project, or just the media used on the timeline, including nested Vegas Pro 13 projects.
XAVC Intra Smart Render – Dramatically reduce render times when using XAVC Intra MXF render templates.
Loudness Meters – New EBU R-128/CALM (Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act) compliant metering helps you follow the new rules and avoid fines while maximizing the dynamic range potential of your audio.
Multi-tool paradigm – A convenient pop-up menu directly below the timeline organizes frequently used tools and provides fast access for a more efficient editing workflow.
New video plug-ins – Seven dynamic video effects from FXHOME, accelerated through OpenGL, are integrated directly into the Vegas Pro 13 application.
NewBlueFX Video Essentials VI – 100 presets in 10 sophisticated plugins; A NewBlueFX top seller.
iZotope® Nectar® Elements – One-click voice/narration processing plug-in. Apply task-specific style presets such as Voice Over or Dialogue and then customize your sound with dedicated controls like Presence, Drive, and Grit. Nectar Elements makes vocal treatment a snap.



The Vegas Pro 13 application is available in three new configurations:

Vegas Pro 13 Edit: Video and Audio Production – The core Vegas Pro 13 application including Vegas Pro Connect compatibility, FXHOME plug-ins, and CALM-compliant Loudness Meters.

Vegas Pro 13: Video, Audio, and Blu-ray Disc Creation – Vegas Pro 13, plus DVD Architect™ Pro 6, Dolby® Digital Professional Encoder, the Video Essentials VI plug-in collection from NewBlueFX (a US $129 value), and the iZotope® Nectar® Elements voice/narration processing plug-in (a US $129 value).

Vegas Pro 13 Suite: Editing, Disc Authoring, and Visual Effects – The core application, plus Sound Forge® Pro 11, DVD Architect™ Pro 6, HitFilm 2 Ultimate (a wide range of special effects plug-ins; a US $399 value), Dolby® Digital Professional Encoder, the Video Essentials VI plug-in collection from NewBlueFX, the iZotope® Nectar® Elements voice/narration processing plug-in, 100 sound effects from Blastwave FX, and 25 royalty-free Sound Series: Production Music tracks (a US $249 value).

Does anyone know whether SVP 13 can handle DNG? Thank you

Marco Ba April 7th, 2014 06:36 AM

Re: Pro 13 press announcement
 
Even earlier Vegas versions can read DNG if only you installed the appropriate codec. I already did a lot of work with DNG files in Vegas Pro 12.

The inclusion of NewBlue FX Essentials VI makes it worth the upgrade price.

It depends :)
I already own Sound Forge 11 and DVDA 6 and have the Nectar and sound FX offerings from previous purchases so, unless the upgrade price is very attractive, I'll probably stick with the basic Pro 13 offer.

Aha, didn't look closely at the options, thanks for the heads up, Mike!

Jeff, I don't have HitFilm 2 Ultimate or NB Video Essentials VI (over $500 value) so it still might be a great deal. I hate waiting :)

Re: Pro 13 press announcement
 
Yes, me too, I'm anxious to see the upgrade prices on the different packages.

Where can I find this codec. I was under the impression Sony Vegas Pro 12 could not handle raw files such as DNG. Thanks

Re: Pro 13 press announcement
 
Adobe offers a DNG codec which is freely available at Adobe.com (not sure the linked one is the latest one).

What doesn't work in Vegas Pro yet is the handling of Raw metadata.

Bill LiPera April 7th, 2014 07:22 PM

Re: Pro 13 press announcement
 
I downloaded the codec and ran it but I still can't import the DNG files. What am I doing wrong? Right now the only way I can get the DNG files into Vegas is with Resolve which takes too much time. Thanks

Not to me. NewBlue refuses to run on my system claiming my GPU does not meet their minimum requirements. Well, gee, I have OpenCL on my system, what else do they want?
