How to Unlink Video and Audio on Sony Vegas

Vegas Pro is a software package that is used for editing videos and also non-linear editing (NLE).

This software was published by Sonic Foundry first from the year 1999 to 2003. Then by Sony Creative Software from 2003 to 2016. And now the company named Magix owns this. This software runs on Windows operating system.

At first, they planned to make this software as audio editing software. But after some time it developed into an NLE for both video and audio from version 2.0.

Vegas Pro has a lot of features such as real-time multi-track video and audio editing on infinite tracks. It also consists of resolution-independent video sequencing, composing tools, and also complex effects as well.

It also consists of 24-bit/192 kHz audio support, DirectX and VST plug-in effect support, and also Dolby Digital surround sound mixing.

On the 24th of May, 2016, Sony declared that it had sold Vegas (and most of its “Creative Software” line) to a company called MAGIX, which would now continue to support and develop this software further.

This software does not need any specialized hardware to run smoothly, it runs well on almost any of the standard Windows computers all across a wide range of hardware.

In Vegas, most of the processing follows an audio-like example. You can easily apply the effects at any stage of the visual signal flow or event level, output level, and track level effects.

You can also use tools like delay to delay the audios. We are also able to reverb and flange the audio effect as well that can be applied in a digital audio system; such as Pro Tools, Sonar, and Cubase.

You can also control Master output effects and manipulate them over time by the use of Master Bus track automation envelopes.

Vegas also provides a huge variety of tools for compositing and motion graphics. These tools include 3D track motion compositing with control over z-depth. Also spatial arrangement of visual planes which includes plane intersection.

Many Vegas versions started from Vegas Beta. But now there is a much upgraded and updated version which is Vegas Pro 19. There can be much more advanced Vegas Pro versions in the future.
