DNxHD is a great choice for HD, but no UHD support afaik
. AVI uncompressed YUV 4:2:2 10 bit is very excellent for 4k/UHD, and only slightly more bit hungry than equivalent ProRes codecs.
I like Vegas Pro by the way, long time user and very experienced with it. The last update for version 12 seems to have finally gotten stable with the GPU processing, CUDA. I may update to version 13. But for the really high quality grades and cameras, Alexa, F5/F55/F65/F7 BMD DaVinci Resolve is really the way to go and worth the effort to learn it. There is a trial version that is free, and does everything you need for UHD.
Vegas is super fast for cutting, titling, audio, editing and general color correction. Mainly the difference with Resolve is the support for 3D luts, cinema cameras and depth of color manipulations just has more purity, but Vegas does everything well, and with speed.
