Desktop Test System
We recently built a new system for a specific product test and while loading a new operating system decided to test Vegas 12 Pro against Vegas 13 Pro. This eventually led to testing the CPU, the CPU's onboard graphics (HD4600), and finally the VisionTek R9 290 as the acceleration devices.
Vegas Pro Benchmark
Sony built a benchmark to use in Vegas. The test, introduced with the launch of Vegas Pro 12, renders a Mercedes convertible like one you might see in a commercial. There are several transitions, text, special FX lighting, and so on. Sadly, between running the tests for this article and writing it, Sony has removed the benchmark page and it now redirects to a Vegas Pro 13 page. We managed to find the page using The Wayback Machine.
Today, we're using the Sony built Vegas Pro test in 720p; 1080p; 4K on Vegas Pro 13; and a custom real-world test of a video we rendered recently.
