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 Selection Edit Tool no longer flickers when holding Ctr. or Shift when making a selection
Shuffle events now works properly when a J cut is present
The Portals transition now works properly
Improved the handling of imported Photoshop files so that layers no longer display pale edges when viewing at Best settings in the Video Preview window

A menu option to rename video plug-ins while in the Plug-In Chooser has been removed since the operation is not available and choosing it caused a crash
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
The TrackGroup scripting class has been updated so that the Mute and Solo properties now return the correct values as expected
Fixed a problem that could cause a crash under certain circumstances when exporting a project as a VEGAS Pro archive
The Render Complete dialog box is now covered by floating windows within the application less frequently.
Color Curves channel setting now persist through closing and reopening the tool.
Color Curves Show All Channels checkbox is now selected by default
This build fixes the updating bug that prevented some from updating to 178.
Vegas Pro 14 (build #178) - Update 1
The build 178 is essentially a hotfix for a memory leak that could result in a crash when using multiple AVCHD and HDV files in a project. This is the only noteworthy fix contained in this update. We are continuing to work on a more robust update that addresses some long-standing issues as well as improvements to new features. That update will be available in the upcoming weeks.
Fixed a bug wherein keyboard shortcuts assigned to scripts were removed from the keyboard map when exiting.
