MADISON, WI — Vegas Creative Software (www.vegascreativesoftware.com) recently announced a new lineup and pricing strategy that’s designed to further empower content creators. Central to the strategy is a complete refresh of the Vegas Pro product line, beginning with the launch of Vegas Pro 19. The refreshed product line - with Vegas Pro 19 at its core - delivers improved video/audio editing, color grading, effects, live streaming and all new cloud-integrated content management and acquisition.
Some of Vegas Pro 19’s new features include Hub Window, which offers a central location for accessing cloud storage, royalty-free stock footage, tutorials and more. Vegas Content is a database of royalty-free stock footage that users can download and import directly into their projects.

The color grading panel has been redesigned, and now features a more intuitive and accessible workflow. Range-limited color wheels provide precise controls, allowing artist to better target specific color grading adjustments. Forty professionally-developed camera and LUT presets are included too.
