about MAGIX Vegas Pro Dec 2015

i like the app but i think the preview window is too little for small screens, but that on a side, it works great with GPU. i'm very pleased with it, worth the money definitely.


Very powerful and easy to learn.

about MAGIX Vegas Pro Mar 2014

It's right up there with Premiere in terms of professionalism. Premiere has more technical goodies and seamlessly integrates with other Adobe products, but the learning curve is much steeper.

I figured out how to use Vegas in minutes with no instruction or experience in video. That's how awesomely intuitive the interface is.


This is the BEST non-linear-editor (NLE) for several years ...

Comment by Boris
about MAGIX Vegas Pro Jun 2011

This is the BEST non-linear-editor (NLE) for several years straight. It is exceptionally easy to use (thus the work-flow is faster) and it is immensely powerful (there has not been anything I needed that it didn't have).

Downsides: no native motion stabilization (try Mercalli ProDAD) and no motion tracking (I guess try Adobe After Effects)
