Vegasaur 3.x History
Notable fixes/changes in Version 3.3 (2017-09-21)
- Velocity 2 Twixtor: New 1-Click command to convert velocity envelope to Twixtor keyframes for creating super smooth slow motion.
- Quick Render: Fast way to render selected events or regions.
- Markers: You can temporarily hide selected types of markers. Unhide, when you need them again.
- Tweener: Added support for transition progress envelopes.
- Batch Stabilization: Added support for BCC Optical Stabilizer and NewBlueFX Stabilizer.
- New option in Preferences: Automatically select skin to better match VEGAS Pro theme (selected by default).
- Removed several redundant tools and options:
- Paste Event Attributes tool is no longer available in VEGAS Pro 15, which has a similar tool Selective Paste Event Attributes.
- Apply/Remove FX: Clear option was deleted and replaced by Remove option.
- Sweeper: Deleted old code to remove unused media files from the project.
- Improved support for multi-channel media files in Proxy Media Builder, Transcoder, and Replace Media tools
- Fixed an issue with displaying audio waveform when using one-click commands Create Nested Project...
- A number of bug fixes and optimizations
Notable fixes/changes in Version 3.2 (2017-05-31)
- Apply/Remove FX: Now you can easily copy OFX effects from one object to another without creating presets. For example, you can copy effects from event to media (i.e. convert Event FX to Media FX), apply a filter package from your collection to the selected media file and then propagate effects on all other clips etc.
- Snapshots: New option to add EXIF date and time attributes to snapshots using the date/time metadata of the video file and the elapsed time of the snapshot
- Quick Properties: Added Takes Editor that can rename and switch active takes. For example, you can switch to a take that contains certain characters in its name or select an absolutely random take in hundreds of events. It is also possible to automatically activate the next take in each event. This makes sense when working with multi-take events (eg. in multicam projects).
- Smart Trim: Now you can concatenate all output files into a single file. All input files must have the same codec and codec parameters. The frame accuracy is not guaranteed, but it can be useful if you want to cut out unnecessary parts from a clip.
- Markers: Added support for GoPro HiLight Tags. Added the ability to use the selected clips on the timeline to write or read markers.
- Project Backups: Fixed a bug that could cause the application to hang (when working with third-party effect editors, eg. Mocha Pro). In addition, the tool automatically creates a new backup before restoring the project from a backup (thus, saving the current state of a project).
- Project Auditor takes into account Mute & Solo flags of track groups (requires VEGAS Pro 14 build 244 or newer)
- A number of fixes and improvements in Text Wizard and Titles&Text tools
Notable fixes/changes in Version 3.1 (2016-12-08)
- Jarle's Handheld Camera: Real camera shake effects that were used by the editors of DEADPOOL movie
- All tools that change the position of events (eg. Close Gaps, Randomize Events, Sort Events Chronologically, Quick Properties > Placement etc.) comply with Ignore Event Grouping option in Vegas Options menu. If it is unchecked, Vegasaur moves ALL the grouped events. Otherwise, it moves only the selected video/audio events ignoring any "external" events grouped with them.
- Quick Properties: Length and Extend to Cursor options were superseded with a new Extend Event option. It offers several flexible ways to trim and change the length of events.
- Proxy Media Builder: Background rendering for native Vegas proxies and new features
- Select Events: Added new option to process events within regions
- Render Assistant: Period of silence setting lets you disable audio notifications for certain time intervals (eg. at night). By default it is turned on, so adjust it as you need.
- Apply/Remove FX: New options to insert effects to the beginning of the fx chain and before Pan/Crop
- Sweeper: Added support for .scc & .sfvx files
- Vegasaur menu reorganization: Added 2 new submenus (Audio and Media)
- Plenty other minor changes and bug fixes
Notable fixes/changes in Version 3.0 (2016-09-20)
- Vegasaur 3.0 requires VEGAS Pro 14 or newer. You can install this version side-by-side with the older Vegasaur versions - Vegas Pro 8-13 will continue to use Vegasaur 1.x or 2.x, while the newer versions of Vegas Pro will use the new Vegasaur.
- A bunch of technical changes: new .NET Framework, new Vegas Scripting API, updated GUI library etc.
- Silence Detector: Finds the silence in the media files.
- Still Images Panel: Indispensable tool for animators. Fast way to change "New still image length" setting and more.
- Batch Stabilization: Added support for Mercalli V4 Stabilizr plug-in
- By default, Vegasaur uses dark color skin, but you can easily change it in Preferences window
Vegasaur 2.x History
Notable fixes/changes in Version 2.7 (2016-09-03)
- Added support for VEGAS Pro 13 build 543
- Text Generation Wizard: New features for importing subtitles. Set the starting timecode to 00:00:00 option shifts all the timestamps of a subtitle file so that the first subtitle starts from 00:00:00. The second option, Import subtitles as a single media, creates a single text object containing all subtitles. This can improve the responsiveness of Vegas in case of a large number of subtitles.
- Markers: Added 3 new options in "Adjust Position" list (move next/previous/nearest marker to cursor). In "Demote Markers" tool added support for subclips.
- Goto 1-click command: usability improvement; added support for media markers; "Move Cursor" window remembers your settings
