Q: “Hi guys, I use Sony Vegas Pro 12 and I am about to upgrade my pc. I know that SV Pro does not support GPU while editing (and preview) but uses only CPU. This requires a huge CPU power.
Now I want to switch to 4K but I have read that you must have a really strong pc especially for non proxy editing.
Please what is yout setup for smooth 4K editing with Sony Vegas?”
With ever-improving camera technology and storage solutions, the 4K industry has grown steadily since then. Today 4K has become a new standard in the video industry for high-budget feature films, TV dramas. If you got some 4K video from the new Typhoon-H or other 4K drones/cameras, you will be eagerly know the 4K video workflow. This article focuses on Typhoon-H 4K video to Sony Vegas Pro 12 workflow.
As it claimed, Sony Vegas Pro 12 is the popular editor. Sony Vegas Pro 12 and the latest version Vegas Pro 13 support a complete 4K workflow when you're working with the new codec like 4K XAVC and XAVC S. Of course, working with Typhoon-H 4K files can be taxing on your computer, especially if you don't have the most powerful machine to edit on. From our tests it looks like Sony Vegas Pro 12/13 has to create a lower resolution proxy file to display in the NLE while you edit, so you have to wait for the proxy file to be created before you can edit any Typhoon-H 4K footage. In this process, it will cost some time.
Well, if you don't like the way, or have the old version of Sony Vegas Pro that doesn't support Typhoon-H 4K video, an alternative way is to convert Typhoon-H 4K video with Pavtube Video Converter and then import to Sony Vegas Pro 12 directly. This video converter perfectly works as the 4K to Vegas Pro Converter that helps you convert any 4K videos including MP4, MOV, H.265, XAVC, XAVC S or any 4K files to MPEG-2, which is the best format for Vegas to edit with ease. No expensive add-ons or plug-ins are required. With it, you may also transcode Typhoon-H 4K video to Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Windows Movie Maker, Davinci Resolve, Pinnacle Studio and more NLE programs highly compatible formats for editing.
