Sony Vegas Pro 12: A Quick Look at a New Standard in Video Editing

Legit Reviews by Ken Brown

Introducing an All-New Sony Vegas Pro

Late this summer, Sony released their latest upgrade to their Vegas editing application – Vegas Pro 12. This version of Vegas adds tons of feature enhancements and performance improvements. Since this is one of the main tools we use in our arsenal, we wanted to see just how well this new software worked so we took it on a test drive and compared it directly with its predecessor.

For those who aren’t familiar with Vegas Pro, Sony has put together a collection of integrated, cutting-edge video production environment tools for professional video editing, audio mixing, and DVD/Blu-ray Disc authoring. Vegas Pro, like its other competitors on the market – Apple’s Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premier, and Magix Video Pro – supports a large number of image, video and audio formats, and also includes a large OpenFX plug-in architecture. Other workflow innovations built into Vegas Pro 12 make it easy for a user (or Director) to deliver a story and express their vision.

Vegas Pro allows you to edit standard-definition, High-definition, 2k and 4k material even in 3D with relative ease. Traditionally, the Sony Vegas interface has always had innovative tools and a very user friendly track-based editing layout. Sony promises that the dozens of additional feature enhancements and performance improvements will make the upgraded Vegas Pro 12 that much stronger.

The Sony Vegas family of software includes the Vegas Pro line, as well as the Sony Movie Studio for movie makers who aren’t trying to win an Oscar. Between the pro-line and ‘novice ‘packages, there should be a product that meets your needs. read more...
