About VEGAS Pro

VEGAS Pro is a video editing software that provides businesses with tools to create professional videos and add multiple audiovisual effects according to requirements. Supervisors can use the stabilization engine to minimize the appearance of unwanted shaky movements across videos and improve the overall quality of the content.

VEGAS Pro allows organizations to pin texts or color grading effects across moving objects in different dimensions or planar motions. Managers can edit videos clips, organize and view ongoing projects in a nested timeline, and share specific portions of videos with colleagues.

VEGAS Pro enables businesses to control the exposure of videos, grade colors based on the grading workflow, and add colorizing filters on them. Using SOUND FORGE Pro, professionals can import audio clips on the platform and edit them to streamline noise cancellation processes.

VEGAS Pro:

I started using VEGAS Pro back in the 00's at a multimedia company. As an audio editor and composer, VEGAS Pro allowed me to quickly edit music to film—the time-stretching and snapping tools are unparalleled—and being able to cross-dissolve video clips simply by dragging them made life so easy. I miss you, VEGAS Pro...

Pros

It's hard to think of any other video editor that allows you to run full audio tracks with VST plugins in-line with your video tracks. If you're an editor who needs to do full mixes while you edit video, this is the app for you.

Cons

Sadly, VEGAS Pro is only for Windows. Since switching to Mac, I've had to stop using Vegas. But I switch back in a heartbeat if they put out a Mac version.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Premiere Pro and Pro Tools

Reasons for Choosing VEGAS Pro

Adobe Premiere is slow and cumbersome. VEGAS Pro is fast and reliable.

I'm very happy with the software.

Editing becomes super fast, and you can automate most actions through scripts or plugins.

Pros

First : It's a highly flexible tool for whom you can code your own scripts to automate actions.
Second : The real time preview is a real time saver.
Third : It's affordable, and upgrades to get the lastest version are cheap.
And most importantly : It doesn't slow down your computer or crashes as much as it's direct competitor.
So that you can render your project while still working (in your browser for instance) on something else less computer intensive.

Cons

The out of the box "picture in picture" feature was overly complicated without a plugin.
The multicam was cumbersome.
Not sure if they improved it in their latest upgrade to something faster to produce and easier to edit like in Final Cut Pro X.

Reasons for Choosing VEGAS Pro

Workflow was too time consuming. Access to a limited feature set was limiting our creativity as well.

Reasons for Switching to VEGAS Pro

Computer requirements were too demanding. Everything seemed very slow and eventually crashed the app (or the computer). The opposite of what I was trying to achieve.

Amazing. I used this software daily for years, I know it so well.

Pros

I love how easy and approachable Vegas Pro is. I mostly used Vegas Pro 12, using it almost daily. I was pretty much always working on a project in Vegas Pro. It is much easier to get into than Adobe Premier Pro and After Effects. It's a great alternative to Final Cut Pro if you don't have a Mac!

Cons

I experienced several crash issues in the past, though I am sure they have dealt with many of those problems in recent updates. Other than that, no compaints!

I used it for a trial to get a sense of the software. It can be used normally by people who are not fine with other industry leading applications. But for me it was painful to use it and to look for similarities with other apps. I guess there is always two kinda of people. Ones who like the shiny interface of Vegas and are ok with the terminology and the others.

Pros

The interface is fine for a beginner oso someone who is not familiar with video editing. It can be quickly understood and used.

Cons

After using Vegas for a while and trying to get into a more serious apps you realize that the industry standard is somewhere else and the issues start to line-up since you need to look for tools in different context menus and the naming can be difficult to transpone.

Vegas Pro Is The Underrated NLE King

I've been using Vegas Pro for about 10 years. I've been tempted by the competition, and indeed have incorporated things like Filmora for more casual edits and easier titling. But if I need to do a complex edit, like the one I did for my award-winning short film, I go to Vegas Pro. It's reliable, stable, feature-rich and affordable.

Pros

Vegas sits on a very sweet spot: it's a single-purchase license (versus things like Premiere which are only available through subscriptions), but it's not too much more expensive than more enthusiast offerings such as Filmora. For that one-time payment, you get a lifetime license to one of the most established non-linear editors in the business. There's a wealth of support and information online (which sets it apart from newcomers) and the business model is much more small-business-friendly than the Adobe subscription model.

Cons

Magix acquired Vegas from Sony a few years back but not much has changed. I really wish there were better built-in titles, for example. Better support for hardware acceleration of the timeline and edit process. The titling issue in particular usually means I have to edit my footage further somewhere else. But to be honest, the NLE workflow is good enough that I don't mind the extra steps for titling.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Premiere Pro

Reasons for Switching to VEGAS Pro

The single-license purchase model made VEGAS Pro a no-brainer when choosing it over Premiere.
