TM2YC said:Any idea what the differences are between 'Pro 14' and 'Pro 15' and between 'Pro 15' and 'Pro 15: Edit'?
Vegas Pro 15 Edit (the one included in this new bundle) features the following improvements over Vegas 14 Pro:
Workflow & UI: Vegas Pro 15 features workflow and UI enhancements for a “more organized timeline workflow”. You will still be very familiar with the UI but notice some slight tweaks, including four different default background shades.
Hardware Acceleration: Updates have also been made for hardware acceleration from modern graphics cards and adds support for Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV).
Selectively paste event attributes: This feature is a great addition! You can copy all of the attributes from one event and paste them onto another event (or several). This definitely helps to speed up my workflow.
Instant Freeze Frame: Yes that’s right! You can now apply a freeze frame to a video clip INSTANTLY! A cool feature sure, but not a huge selling point for me personally.
Picture-in-Picture OFX plug-in: Version 15 ships with the Picture-in-Picture plug-in to allow you to place an additional video within your video with an easy, interactive control on the Video Preview window.
Support for ACES 1.0: ACES 1.0 is the Academy Color Encoding System. Support for ACES 1.0 has been added to Vegas in this version.
Crop OFX plug-in: This is a plug-in to make cropping easier with an interactive tool on the Video Preview. Cropping was already easy, now it’s easier!
LUT OFX plug-in: The LUT OFX plug-in simply allows you to apply camera and creative LUTs to your media and events.
The most important one of those upgrades for me is the built-in LUT plug-in.
Vegas Pro 15 (the regular version without "Edit" in its title, which is not included in the Humble Bundle) includes all of those upgrades, plus these:
NewBlueFX Filters 5 Ultimate: With a $299 price tag, NewBlueFX Filters 5 Ultimate is a collection of filters and effects for your media. The plug-ins included are ColorFast 2, Recreate, Recolor, and Refocus.
HitFilm Movie Essentials: This is a collection of plug-ins for further video enhancement and repair. Create a cinematic appearance, fix grainy video, generate special effects, and more.
However, the Humble Bundle also features Hitfilm Movie Essentials in addition to Vegas Pro 15 Edit, so the only thing included in the regular Vegas Pro 15 that you don't get in the bundle is the NewBlueFX filter pack.
