The Vegas Pro 9 collection integrates two powerful applications that work seamlessly together to provide an efficient and intuitive editing environment for video and broadcast professionals. From acquisition to delivery, from camera to Blu-ray Disc™, the Vegas Pro 9 collection delivers exactly what you need to produce outstanding results.

What’s New?

Notable fixes/changes in Version 9.0c
  • Enhanced audio event timestretch and pitch shifting with zplane élastique Pro.
  • Added XDCAM EX (MP4) rendering.
  • Added quality setting for MXF compression during capture (lower quality level enables compress during capture on lower-end hardware).
  • Added a Prioritize quality over speed check box to the MainConcept MPEG-2 and Sony MXF Custom Settings dialog.
  • MPEG-2 smart rendering now works across different container formats. You can smart render between identical operating points of XDCAM (MXF), XDCAM EX (MP4), and HDV (M2T).
  • Added support for RED devices and media to the Device Explorer.
  • Incorporated an updated RED SDK. In the new SDK, default decoding properties have changed, and color science has been improved. You may notice variations in decoded images due to these changes.
  • Added support for additional AJA I/O hardware: XENA LHi and Io Express, including HDMI input and output.
  • Added support for BlackMagic Design DeckLink HD Extreme (4:2:2 only).
  • Improved precision for the Record Engage Delay setting when printing to tape from an SDI device to allow fine tuning of auto-edit frame accuracy.
  • Added General Preference for Import stereo as dual mono which allows for working with two-channel audio as dual mono.

    When using this setting, the default panning mode, Add Channels, will increase the level of mono events by 6 dB, which can cause unexpected results in your mix. We recommend using the Film or Balance (0 dB Center) panning mode when using the Import stereo as dual mono setting.
  • Added UMID reading for XDCAM EX (MP4).
  • Improvements to XDCAM (MXF), HDV, and AVCHD readers and writers.
  • Fixed an issue where XDCAM EX essence markers were not displayed for clips imported using the Device Explorer.
  • Fixed an issue reading QuickTime audio when using QuickTime 7.6.4.
  • Fixed a crash when displaying the Audio tab for QuickTime templates when using QuickTime 7.6.4.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause certain large clips of XDCAM (MXF) audio to have small dropouts.
  • General compatibility improvements to XDCAM HD MXF files.
  • Fixed and issue with smart rendering MXF/DV content to AVI/DV format.
  • Fixed an issue with saving a project with trimmed MXF/DV media.
  • Fixed an issue where the audio proxy for nested projects might not fully render.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur while creating a custom AVI render template.
  • Improved audio/video sync in Sony AVC and MainConcept AVC.
  • Fixed an issue with AVCHD markers not appearing in the correct location.
  • Fixed a hang that could occur rendering AVCHD with AC-3 audio.
  • Fixed an issue reading certain AVC files (64-bit version).
  • Fixed an issue creating a template with a custom bit rate in MainConcept AVC/AAC.
  • Fixed an issue rendering certain projects to MainConcept AVC/AAC (64-bit version).
  • Fixed an issue with removing 2-3 pulldown from AVI/DV 24p sources.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Windows Secondary Monitor to display incorrectly after performing a prerender.
  • Fixed an issue with prerender or print to tape to certain progressive formats when media generators are used without effects or compositing.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a glitch in the audio if two envelope points were at the same location.
  • Fixed image preview during HDV capture (64-bit version).
  • Fixed an issue where 64-bit VST plug-ins would not appear (64-bit version).
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Vegas90.exe process to remain in Task Manager after closing Vegas (Windows XP only).
  • Fixed Project Media window Timecode In/Timecode Out fields to not use project ruler offset.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause events created using Render to New Track to be misaligned if Quantize to Frames was enabled.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Add as CD Track command to create events without media for some file types.
  • Fixed an issue with setting the recording path in the Project Properties dialog.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Open Copy in Sound Forge to change the audio bit depth of the resulting take.
  • Fixed an issue with DPX file row padding.

The latest quicktime update killed the abiltiy to edit H.264 MOV files with Sony Vegas.  I've read something about trying to find an earlier version of quicktime, uninstall the new one, reinstall the old one, etc, but so far that's not worked for me either.  Trying to find something else to work with my Kodak Zi8 til this is fixed.


I'm on 64bit, not sure if it's the same with anyone else.

i am having the same problem now. It was working fine and now it wont start up anymore. HELP... i cannot even load the files info vegas 8 so i am stuck. Anyone have ideas?


Did you mention the crashing on creating I/O manager?
It happens a lot. Well, I guess that everything you said was positive, but it really does crash a lot. Mainly at the "creating file I/O manager" part when it's loading.


That I/O manager hang/crash bit still happens to me on 9c. I'm on 64bit, not sure if it's the same with anyone else.
