DVFilm Raylight (Windows) 301-13 Released

DVFilm Raylight 301-13 was released August 1 to correct a problem with the Vegas plugin. Get it at

This is the "legacy" release for the old DVFilm Raylight, which has been superceded by Raylight Ultra. Barring any major problems with 301-13 it will be the last update you will need for the future.

On the other hand this is now an obsolete product as it will not work with Vegas 9 or later versions, nor with Windows Vista 64 or any future versions of Windows. If you have not upgraded to Ultra please do so after you have finished your current project.

Ultra has better performance, gives you access to metadata and all 4 audio tracks, works with 64-bit Vegas, and will support AVC-Intra in future updates. The special upgrade price of $50 is good only through late summer 2009. Get it at End sales pitch.

Raylight Ultra Released

Raylight Ultra 1.0 was released today. Ultra replaces the original DVFilm Raylight product. It has faster rendering than the old Raylight and mostly eliminates the need to switch between quality modes. It also allows you to import 4 audio tracks into Sony Vegas and allows you to view P2 metadata in the Vegas timeline. The Vegas plugin requires Windows XP (32) or Vista (32) and Sony Vegas 8.0. For more info go to

Users of DVFilm Raylight can upgrade to Ultra right now for a special price of only $50.

Looking ahead in the near future we hope to update Ultra for Vista 64 and Sony Vegas 8.1. That feature as well as direct AVC-Intra editing in Vegas will be coming soon as free updates to Ultra.

DVFilm Raylight will continue to be supported, but there will be no more bug fixes for it and we recommend you use Ultra for all new projects.
