Vegas Creative Software, in partnership with FXhome, has added new versions of Vegas Effects and Vegas Image to the Vegas Post suite of editing, VFX, compositing and imaging tools for video professionals, editors and VFX artists.
The Vegas Post workflow centers on Vegas Pro for editing and adds Vegas Effects and Vegas Image for VFX, compositing and still-image editing.
Vegas Effects is a full-featured visual effects and compositing tool that provides a variety of high-quality effects, presets and correction tools. With over 800 effects and filters to tweak, combine, pull apart and put back together, Vegas Effects provides users with a powerful library of effects including:
• Particle generators
• Text and titling
• Behavior effects
• 3D model rendering
• A unified 3D space
• Fire and lightning generators
• Greenscreen removal
• Muzzle flash generators
• Picture in picture
• Vertical video integration
Vegas Image is a non-destructive raw image compositor that enables video editors to work with still-image and graphical content and incorporate it directly into their final productions — all directly integrated with Vegas Post. This new version of Vegas Image contains feature updates including:
• Brush masks: A new mask type that allows the user to brush in/out effects or layers and includes basic brush settings like radius, opacity, softness, spacing and smoothing
• Multiple layer transform: Gives the ability to move, rotate and scale a selection of layers
• Multi-point gradient effect: An effect that enables users to create colored gradients using an unlimited amount of colored points
• Light rays effect: An effect that uses bright spots to cast light rays in scenes, e.g., light rays streaming through trees
• Raw denoise: Bespoke denoise step for raw images, which can remove defective pixels and large noise patterns
• Lens distortion effect: Can be used to perform lens-based adjustments, such as barrel/pincushion distortion or chromatic aberration
• Halftone effect: Produces a halftone look, like a newspaper print or pop art
• Configurable mask overlay color: Users can now pick what color is overlaid when the mask overlay render option is enabled
Vegas Post is available now for $999 or as a subscription starting at $21 per month.
