VEGAS Creative Software and FXhome announced at NAB 2019 their partnership to create a new solution for editing video and creating special effects. Well, VEGAS POST is here now.
VEGAS POST is a full-range integrated suite for powerful video editing and post production. Edit faster than ever with VEGAS Pro, apply over 800 stunning visual FX in VEGAS Effects and experience advanced image compositing with VEGAS Image. VEGAS POST is your new video post production suite, says MAGIX.
ProVideo Coalition wrote about the new software last April, when it was announced, at NAB 2019. The new partnership, we wrote then, “sees FXhome – creators of the popular editing and VFX software, HitFilm, developing a customized effects and compositing tool specifically designed for VEGAS POST. With VEGAS Pro at its core, VEGAS POST will provide industry-renowned editing tools coupled with FXhome’s expertise in compositing and visual effects to offer a massive array of features and capabilities, ideally suited for video professionals in post production facilities of all sizes and requirements – from individual artists to large post production studios, broadcasters and SME (small/medium enterprise) installations.”
MAGIX meets FXhome
Additionally, we wrote, “VEGAS POST will integrate a custom-developed version of FXhome’s new non-destructive RAW image compositor that will enable video editors to work with still-image and graphical content and incorporate it directly into their final productions. All three tools will work together seamlessly in an integrated, end-to-end workflow to accelerate and streamline the post-production process for artists.”
Now, the whole suite is revealed, and MAGIX says it is time for professionals to “discover the smart alternative for video editing and post production”. The suite includes three key elements. VEGAS Pro, VEGAS Effects and VEGAS Image. It’s not difficult to see what each segment represents the core NLE is MAGIX’s, while Effects and Image come from FXHome own NLE and VFX software, HitFilm, and the Image from Imerge Pro. Those three elements unite under the name VEGAS POST.
