MAGIX VEGAS Pro (formerly Sony Vegas) is a Windows video and audio editing application for professional and casual users. It supports various multimedia formats and project file types, has many editing tools, and allows you to publish to different video formats.

VEGAS Pro supports many of the most common camcorder formats, such as AVCHD, XAVC, XDCAM, DSLR h.264 Quicktime, and RED. The application also allows you to import and export your video and audio to formats compatible with Avid Pro Tools, Apple Final Cut, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Adobe After Effects. VEGAS Pro features nondestructive editing and provides various tools for editing SD, HD, 2K, and 4K video, including multicam editing, HDR color correction, video stabilization, and noise reduction. The editing workspace reflects your work preferences as it is fully customizable and provides a multi-tool paradigm that organizes frequently used tools in a pop-up menu.

The audio editing side of VEGAS Pro provides high-resolution 24-bit/192 kHz audio recording and playback, 5.1 surround mixing, punch-in recording, and time compression/expansion. You can modify your audio with real-time audio effects, such as EQ, delay, and reverb, and tweak your mixes with the application's Loudness meters to maximize audio dynamic range. Finally, the VEGAS Pro Connect app for iPad allows collaborators to jointly control and comment on projects and drop frame-accurate markers and notes into the timeline for direct project feedback.


VEGAS Pro is a powerful package for editing professional video and audio projects and home movies. The software supports many popular multimedia and video-editing project formats and provides impressive video and audio editing capabilities. Although it is not as widely used as Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, or CyberLink PowerDirector, MAGIX VEGAS Pro is a capable and affordable alternative.
