Sony Vegas Pro in 60 Seconds
Now in its 13th incarnation, Sony Vegas Pro is a non-linear editing system for video. While its use still lags behind in popularity compared to more famous non-linear editors like Adobe, Avid and Final Cut, Sony Vegas offers all you would expect and is a real contender used by many professional video producers (at a price that's easy to afford).
About Sony Vegas Pro
From standard definition to 4k and 3D, Sony Vegas pro will handle
multiple file formats in the same session, loaded directly into the
working timeline. As a stand-alone piece of software it really can
handle your entire project including sophisticated audio tools.
Working from a PC instead of a Mac means that it is also a favorite ‘first time’ choice for those looking for something more sophisticated with the option of a consumer version with less bells and whistles than the professional offering.
Sony Vegas is user friendly and intuitive, meaning you can increase the sophistication of your films at your own pace, trying new effects and more complicated operations as your confidence and knowledge grows.
