About VEGAS Pro

VEGAS Pro is a video editing tool that helps businesses create and edit professional videos on a centralized platform. Managers can edit video clips on the nested timeline and share specific sections with colleagues to improve collaboration.

VEGAS Pro allows organizations to apply colorizing filters on videos, control exposures, and manage grading workflows. Professionals can import audio clips on the platform and edit them according to requirements. Additionally, users can reduce the appearance of shaky movements in videos using the stabilization engine.

Pricing is available on a one-time license basis as well as on monthly and annual subscriptions.

Why is Everyone Going Crazy Over Vegas Pro?

We use Vegas Pro as the official editing software for our radio. It is used 24/7 and everyone is quite happy with the overall performance of Vegas. It is pretty good to handle 7-8 hour playlists. I put together music B2B for the night and work with multitrack. Vegas Pro is the backbone of our organization and it has definitely had a positive impact on our ROI. You can do a lot of cool stuff with Vegas when it comes to audio engineering.

Pros

Vegas Pro is excellent for audio editing. A big window for multiple audio tracks makes it quite easy to work. The interface is user-friendly and the tools are awesome. The snapping tool provides great help to accurately place tracks. Likewise, the automatic crossfade gives so many different variations to combine the two audios. I particularly like the auto-ripple option that helps moving tracks and saves a lot of time. You can put markers and insert region, and then render the desired final audio. Batch-render is an excellent way to process multiple files at the same time. Vegas Pro is a must-have for a radio.

Cons

We recently upgraded from version 13 to 15 and faced trouble rendering singles files. The new version crashes frequently. Docking panels can be tricky sometimes. We had the Explorer Window undocked by mistake and spent a lot of time figuring out how to fix it.

Sony Vegas Pro 16 is a complex, advanced video editing program

In our work in marketing, we produce a large number of video materials. Thanks to Vegas Pro, work is easier and faster, and therefore videos are cheaper.

Pros

A very extensive and at the same time intuitive program, the great advantages of which are: 360 video support, automatically adjusting subtitles, a large number of various types of transitions and effects. Works with video materials in all basic formats (DV, AVCHD, HDV, SD / HD-SDI, HEVC, ProRes).

Cons

The biggest disadvantage of Vegas Pro is the high price and the need to spend time learning the program.

Reasons for Switching to VEGAS Pro

Vegas Pro is a little easier for me to use than DaVinci Resolve.

Video for Graphic Designers

Overall, I am very pleased with Vegas and will continue to use this for the forseeable future.

Pros

Vegas is, by far, the easiest to use video editing software I have come across in 20+ years working in graphic design. The layers function is immediately familiar to anyone that has used an adobe product and the tools are super easy to use and naviagate.

Cons

Vegas tends to bother you with special offers and such at nearly every startup of the software. X'ing out of those can become a nuisance.

Reasons for Choosing VEGAS Pro

Vegas is just simply easier to navigate and work with than Vegas, no matter how integrated it is into a Creative Cloud workflow.

Reasons for Switching to VEGAS Pro

Back when I was using Premier (and Final Cut Pro) in the late 90's and early 2000's, their features were way too hardware-dependent for the normal PC's of that time. Vegas was a great, lightweight alternative that continues to work as such today, even with all the new bells and whistles that have been added to it over the years.

You are on your own

The customer service is so poor that the overall experience is frustrating at best. At worst it costs me money because i can no longer sustain a project session without the software freezing and losing work.

Pros

After years of use and watching a decline in stability update after update, I am saying goodbye and helping people understand there is no after-purchase support with this product from MAGIX.

Cons

Once some of the best video and audio software on the market has become bloated and unusable, glitchy, and unreliable. This is a buy at your own risk software. There is NO support. None. Nada. To even get to a support request you have to click through pages of FAQ and suggestions that are also no help before you can actually submit a support request. After you submit your request there isn't even an automatic email that lets you know your request has been submitted. I have used this software for 20 years...and I am now looking for a more reliable company. Because once you purchase, you are on your own.

Reasons for Choosing VEGAS Pro

Familiarity over decades of using the product. I will be switching to Adobe.

MOV container files will not work in Vegas Pro

Not great, and it does not work on my newer devices which all use .mov containers. DaVinci Resolve free version works much better which is a big surprise.

Pros

I do like fx features and the workflow, but none of my new camera gear will work in it anymore.

Cons

Why does Magix think .mov files are obsolete and always related to Quicktime which they are doing away with? It is my understanding that .mov is just a container, and codec can vary in containers. For instance, my new Atomos Ninja V recorder uses .mov containers with DNxHR codex. Does not work in Vegas but it works without any problems in the free version of DaVinci Resolve. Same thing with 2 of my new action action cameras that also use the .mov container, but it works great in DaVinci Resolve. Vegas Pro also does not have Prores support. What can I actually use Vegas Pro 17 for? Does not work at all for my Atomos Recorder or action cams. I can do a couple tweaks for my Atomos with the DNxHR codex installed separately, but I can't get video on action cameras. I regret spending the money on Vegas Pro 17 now.

Reasons for Choosing VEGAS Pro

Gave it a try because I liked the workflow
