Exploring Sony Vegas Pro 13 Rendering with a VisionTek Radeon R9 290

Sony Vegas Pro 13




There are several different packages for Vegas Pro 13.




Here we see the breakdown for Vegas Pro 13 Edit, Vegas Pro 13, and the full Vegas Pro 13 Suite package. Sony also makes software on the same underlying code--essentially stripped down versions of Vegas--that starts at just $49.95 (Movie Studio 13). GPU-accelerated AVC/H.264 encoding starts at the next tier, Movie Studio 13 Platinum, which costs just $79.95.




Sony hasn't changed the layout of Vegas, and we like that! Everything is nearly identical to how it was when I first started using the original software many years ago.




Most of the time, our Vegas 13 Pro software looks like the image above. Here we have two video files, a static image, and an MP3 track ready to drop into place.




In the preferences-video menu, we get to choose our GPU acceleration of video processing device. Here you can also change the number of rendering threads and the amount of DRAM the preview window uses. Users can also accelerate the MainConcept AVC/AAC in a custom settings menu.
