Not only video effects or transitions can enhance Vegas, but also tools and additive functions.

A lot of very useful patch and plugins for Vegas Pro
Thank you Peter.–105615/?page=1

Very interesting complementary render. Especially to render in MKV, Proress, 10 bits, H265…
Voukoder is system wide video- and audio encoding service that improves you media encoding experience. It supports various encoders (both CPU and GPU based) and also provides a set of post processing filters.

Some useful plugins, some of them are out of date. Not all of them still work with the last version of Vegas.
  • Preview levels for simulating the signal levels of the output device in the preview window,
  • Render progress for more information on the render process and the option to pause a render operation,
  • Split and heal with commands for splitting events on selected tracks and for healing events that have been split,
  • Event streams with a command for restoring deleted events for audio and video streams, and
  • Fixes with little tweaks for the Vegas® user interface.

A bunch of little scripts, Extensions and applications that can speed up work a lot on Vegas Pro. My favourite:
  • Copy Track Volume Envelope
  • Kill All Vegas
  • MP4 Date Changer
  • Set Alpha
