Vegas Pro 14 is a comprehensive and complete video editing system. Vegas supports media in up to 4K resolution, offers GPU acceleration, features sterescopic 3D tools, and includes a full range of editing tools, from the most basic to advanced ones. Vegas has long been known as an editing system that’s open to most formats and capable of editing them mixed on the same timeline, and that’s still the case. Another distinguishing quality of Vegas is its powerful audio tools, which in many cases will suffice for even elaborate projects, ensuring you won’t have to export to a dedicated audio editor. Vegas is also powerful— it runs exclusively on 64-bit versions of Windows 7, 8, and 10, and can take advantage of OpenCL-enabled graphics cards (GPUs) for an accelerated workflow, reduced render times, and the ability to play back high-resolution formats at full quality in real-time. Yet despite all this power, Vegas requires only a fairly modest system (please click on the Specifications tab for System Requirements). In addition, Vegas offers the ability to downscale your footage to lower-resolution proxy files so you can work even faster, especially useful for less powerful systems. In the end, however, you’ll still be able to finalize everything in full quality.

Just like it’s open to most formats, Vegas also offers interoperability with other NLEs, meaning you can import project files (or XML versions) into Vegas and retain most, if not all, of the edit decisions made in the third-party NLE. You can also export Vegas projects so they can be continued or completed in select other editing or finishing software.
