Vegas Pro 11 adds significant performance improvements to the award-winning nonlinear editing courtesy of OpenCL and highly optimized GPU hardware acceleration for video processing and rendering.

We've come to expect a consistent level of quality from Vegas Pro. Sony says Vegas Pro 11 is the world's first Windows-based OpenCL NLE broadly supporting the open standard for core video editing operations video effects and rendering. Other new features include Nvidia 3D Vision support for single-display 3D computers such as the Vaio F series 3D laptops and L series 3D desktops an enhanced video stabilizer tool and new software tools for creating animated titles.
