- 10-bit rendering has been added for HEVC files along with new 10-bit render templates and the ability to create custom 10-bit render templates
No pre-made 10-bit render templates are included.
- A "News Feed" function that communicates important information (e.g. update build announcements) now appears upon application start up whenever a new message is available. This replaces the Net Notify system used in previous versions of the software
- We've created a new 4K render template for MainConcept AVC/AAC file format and exposed a new 4K frame size preset to make it even easier to create 4K files
- Changed the location of the temporary file created during ProRes rendering so that it no longer goes to the system Temporary folder (potentially filling the user's system drive). It now goes to the same folder as the specified render location, and is instantly deleted once the render is complete

- The Trimmer window context menu now properly appears when you right-click the video portion after first having disabled the new hover scrub feature
- Investigated a suspected bug that caused 4K ProRes files from a Blackmagic Designs camera to appear more exposed on Preview and Draft settings in the Video Preview than in Good and Best settings and determined that no bug exists. Some footage may appear brighter or darker at the lower-resolution settings due to the blurring of the video that naturally takes place at these low preview resolutions
- Investigated a suspected bug where 4K ProRes files from a Blackmagix Designs camera has different gamma values in VEGAS Pro 14 compared to VEGAS Pro 13. This has been determined to be caused by a known flaw in the Apple QuickTime for Windows add-on software that was required to read these files in version 13. Our native reader in version 14 does not have this flaw and its output is correct
- Custom window layouts that use tabs docked to the top of windows are now properly saved and persist through an application restart
