Magix has released a major update (now number 5) for Vegas Pro 19, which brings new features as well as numerous bug fixes. The new features include several improvements to the color correction workflow and the speech-to-text function, a motion blur effect, and the ability to recognize multiple GPUs from a single manufacturer and use them for acceleration.
Just recently Vegas Pro got support for all of Apple&s ProRes formats via an update - support for Blackmagic RAW is still in beta. A detailed description of the new features of Vegas Pro 19 including the functions extended by the current update can be found in the following PDF.

The update can be installed using the automatic update function or downloaded directly from the following link. In order to run the DeepLearning based hardware accelerated features (such as style transfer, upscaling and coloring) an update of Vegas Deep Learning models to version 188.8.131.52: is also necessary. Note: Projects saved with the new version (build) 636 cannot be opened in earlier versions of Vegas Pro 19.
