Sony Vegas Pro 13 Edit provides the same core editing features of Sony Vegas Pro 13, but does not include 5.1 channel surround audio tools, DVD authoring, or several third-party plug-ins. The professional video editing software supports nearly any video resolution up to 4096 x 4096, and features native timeline support for a wide range of popular SD, HD, 60p, and even several 4K codecs. This is an educational license that is valid for students, educators, and institutions. A valid student ID or academic email address is required to activate this license.

Vegas runs exclusively on 64-bit versions of Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or 10 and can take advantage of OpenCL-enabled graphics cards (GPUs) for accelerated workflow, reduced render times, and the ability to playback high-resolution formats at full quality, in real-time. In addition, integrated proxy support means you can scale down video quality to accommodate the limitations of less powerful systems, such as laptops, for the sake of editing, while still finalizing in full quality. Interoperability with other NLEs means you can import project files (or XML versions) into Sony Vegas Pro 13 Edit 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 other editing or finishing software.

In spite of its name, Vegas Pro 13 Edit is more than just a video edit software. It features integrated audio editing tools, timeline color correction and effects compositors, and wide plug-in support. Vegas Pro 13 Edit also incorporates timeline tools for editing and troubleshooting stereoscopic 3D footage, and allows you to preview 3D projects in high quality using 3D SDI or HDMI I/O hardware and monitors.

New Features for Vegas Pro 13 Edit

    Vegas Pro Connect App for iPad
    To meet the collaboration challenge on video productions, Vegas Pro Connect provides an alternative to written spreadsheets and notes, offering online and offline review workflows. The app features a comprehensive review system within a gesture-driven control surface

    Proxy-First Workflow
    Shoot XDCAM footage on compatible Sony camcorders and use the Sony Wireless Adapter to send proxies to versions of the high-quality original to the cloud. Editors back at the shop can download and edit with the proxies while the high-resolution files are in transit from the field. When the high-resolution files arrive, automatically relink the edited project to them for rendering

    Project Archiving
    Archive all media associated with a project, or just the media used on the timeline, including nested Vegas Pro 13 Edit projects

    XAVC Intra MXF Smart Render
    Helps dramatically reduce render times by providing XAVC Intra MXF render templates

    Loudness Meters
    Open the new Loudness Meters and tweak your mixes to maximize audio dynamic range while you maintain consistent -23 LUFS Integrated levels and create EBU R-128/CALM Act compliant renders that will pass unattenuated through every stage of the signal path

    Multi-Tool Paradigm
    Frequently used tools are organized in a convenient pop-up menu located directly below the timeline to provide fast access for a more efficient editing workflow

    Editing and Workflow

      Expanded Edit Mode
      Double-click at the edit point to see the timeline in a detailed A-B Roll view. The adjacent frames of the events at the edit point appear clearly above the tracks for reference, and unused media in the events appears in the timeline. With the edit point/event edge highlighted in red, you can trim it with the mouse or numeric keypad. Set a Loop Region around the edit point to dynamically add or remove frames from either side of the edit point while the media plays to create a highly precise, interactive editing experience

      Project Interchange
      Import and export a wide range of project files to and from Vegas Pro. Convert between the native .veg file and AAF for Avid ProTools 10, XML for Apple Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X, DaVinci Resolve 10, and .prproj for Adobe Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC
      4K Support
      Vegas Pro natively supports frame sizes up to 4096 x 4096; the 4K image standard for digital cinema projection (DCI) is 4096 x 2160 pixels. This level of resolution provides more detail and flexibility to pan and crop when delivering in HD. Plus it's ideal for compositing and video effects work as it provides a high-quality final output. Vegas Pro natively supports Sony XAVC and XAVC S files as well as RED ONE and RED EPIC files

      GPU Acceleration
      Better playback and faster renders are possible by taking advantage of the processing power locked up in the GPU. Vegas Pro 13 Edit leverages the GPU for video effects, transitions, compositing, pan/crop, track motion, and encoding. An optimized hardware configuration that uses a compatible GPU device dramatically improves timeline performance. Enjoy higher resolution previews with multiple effects, and crank encoding speeds up by as much as six times over previous versions to popular formats like AVC. Vegas Pro 13 uses OpenCL-supported devices from AMD, Nvidia, and Intel to unleash this power

      Multi-Format Native Editing
      Vegas Pro takes a no transcode, no rewrap approach with Panasonic P2 AVC-Intra and DVCPRO source material. Vegas Pro eliminates the transcode and rewrap process that other applications require, so editors can save valuable production time, minimize storage requirements, and preserve the pristine quality of the original source material. Other natively supported codecs and formats include XAVC, XAVC S, XDCAM, XDCAM EX, NXCAM, HDCAM-SR, AVCCAM, RED R3D, AVCHD, and AVC-based MOV files from popular DSLR cameras. For 3D content creation, Vegas Pro also supports stereoscopic 3D MVC and MPO files from Sony camcorders

      Sync Link
      Establish a hierarchical relationship between timeline events during editing. Move Child events independently of their Parent event, or move the Parent event and move all of its Child events simultaneously to keep the family in perfect synchronization

      Smart Proxy Workflow
      Create high-performance, edit-friendly Smart Proxy clips in the Project Media window and enjoy faster playback on a wider variety of hardware. Media automatically and dynamically switches from the original to the proxy based on the Preview playback settings. Original media files are always available for the final render. You can also set a preference to automatically create proxy files when you add Ultra HD 4K media to your project

      Multicamera Editing
      Specify shots as you play back your project and switch between as many as 32 video sources with a keyboard command or a click of your mouse. Vegas Pro keeps all unused shots. Easily expand a multicamera track into component events to get a complete picture of your project so you can refine the edits

      Comprehensive S-Log Workflow
      S-log technology enables cameras such as the Sony PMW-F3 to capture images with extended dynamic range and tonal reproduction. Through OpenColorIO technology, Vegas Pro 13 Edit supports S-log via the Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) color space standard. Based on the creative goals and display devices available, Vegas Pro 13 applies the appropriate LUT (Look-up Table) during the editing process. You can then edit the encoded project to a wide range of formats with ACES-defined color space standards as well as other popular non-ACES standards

      Video Effects and Compositing

        Shape Masking Tools
        Use Bezier drawing tools to quickly and easily create rectangular and oval-shaped masks which isolate or mask out portions of your media and create interesting video composites. Or, use powerful mask customization tools to create complex and precise masks of any shape imaginable

        FX Masking
        Mask an effect rather than the image itself. This is particularly useful for quickly blurring or pixelating an area of a video clip, to hide a logo, license plate, or a person's face

        Color Match
        Match colors between clips in the highly versatile and powerful L*a*b* color space. Choose a preset from the Preset drop-down list or use the controls to choose the image you want to match. Capture both the source and target images independently from the Trimmer window, the clipboard, a file on your computer, any area of your computer screen, or the Video Preview window

        OpenFX Architecture
        Vegas Pro supports OpenFX plug-ins including many from third-party developers so you can access your ever-expanding collection of filters and effects. The extension for GPU rendering with OpenGL textures allows third-party OpenFX plug-ins that use OpenGL to leverage the power of the GPU more effectively within Vegas Pro. You can also utilize position controls and effects handles right in the Video Preview window with plug-ins that feature OpenFX on-screen interoperability

        Compositing Modes
        Vegas Pro 13 Edit uses a multi-layer, top-down paradigm for compositing and masking, with the ability to assign tracks as Parent or Child tracks. Apply Compositor Effects including Bump Map, Height Map, and Displacement Map to create stylized lighting and textured looks. Vegas Pro 13 Edit supports an impressive variety of compositing modes including Add, Subtract, Dodge, Burn, Source Alpha, Multiply (Mask), Lighten, Darken, Cut, Screen, Overlay, Hard Light, Difference, and Difference Squared. The 3D Compositing mode enables tracks to be moved and rotated anywhere in 3D space, and the results can be used in a stereoscopic 3D project

        LAB Adjust and L*a*b* Color Space Histogram
        Manipulate colors in the powerful L*a*b* color space. The LAB Adjust tool uses the same technology as the Color Match plug-in and takes advantage of the perceptually uniform L*a*b* color standard to provide dramatic and precise control over the color characteristics of your content. In addition, the Video Scopes: L*a*b* Histogram view can display the L, a and b channel distributions of the images in the L*a*b* color space, a tool that can also be used very effectively with the Color Match plug-in

        Robust Video Plug-In Architecture
        The Video Effects Plug-in SDK, based on the Open Effects Association platform, provides an optimized programming environment for third-party plug-in developers. This helps promote a steady stream of new plug-ins for Vegas Pro

        Stereoscopic 3D Editing

          Integrated 3D Monitoring Support
          The Video Preview window provides an extensive selection of 3D viewing options, including channel specific, top/bottom, side-by-side, a blend of both, or anaglyphic display. Professional editors can use an SDI or HDMI connection with a line-alternate 3D display to deliver a high-end preview experience

          Stereoscopic 3D Adjustments
          Use the powerful Stereoscopic 3D Adjust filter to correct for camera misalignments and adjust the screen depth of the target object to place it exactly where you want it in the 3D field. Utilize the stereoscopic editing tools to correct stereoscopic 3D screen edge violations. You can also shift the horizontal offset in some 2D effects and transitions in order to adjust the perceived depth of the effect

          Auto Correct Footage
          Automatically correct 3D video to ensure proper alignment of footage that would otherwise be ruined by minor camera setup discrepancies

          Integrated 3D Adjustments
          Utilize the integrated tools for basic 3D adjustments to improve your 3D project. Typical corrections include horizontal and vertical offsets, zoom discrepancies, keystone, and rotation. Tools to flip video horizontally and vertically and to automatically crop images help to ensure professional 3D results

          True Stereoscopic 3D Camera for 3D Track Motion Compositing
          Create 3D motion effects with precise control over Z depth, plane intersection, compositing, and more. The Parent Motion feature allows you to move and rotate multiple tracks in 3D space as a unit. Create 3D motion changes in real time and preview them instantly

          Add Depth to 2D Elements
          Use the traditional Vegas Pro track compositing methods to intermix 2D elements, such as backgrounds, titles, graphical elements, or keyed video, with 3D content using the traditional Vegas Pro track compositing methods. Give these elements depth in the 3D output using the same horizontal offset adjustment tools used for 3D media

          Extensive Multitrack Audio Editing Tools

          Extensive Audio Effects
          Vegas Pro software supports the popular VST plug-in format. Apply signal and effects processing to individual audio events, all events on a track, and buses. Choose from more than 30 included real-time signal and effects processing tools along with any VST plug-ins on your system. Automate effects with envelope control for each parameter. Vegas Pro software includes essential effects such as Wave Hammer Compression, EQ, and noise gate as well as reverb, chorus, and delay. Surround effects for the master bus include EQ, dither, and Wave Hammer Surround compression tools

          Audio Event FX
          Incorporate audio effects at the event level, track level, bus level, and master output stage, for maximum flexibility when working with multitrack projects

          Broadcast Wave Format Support
          Vegas Pro 13 Edit supports BWF for easy exchange between audio editors and broadcasting platforms

          Multithreaded Audio Engine
          Vegas Pro 13 Edit software takes advantage of multicore and hyper-threading computer systems to maximize available hardware resources. By leveraging the full capabilities of the hardware and reducing direct CPU load render times will be faster and latency reduced

          High-Resolution Audio Support
          Vegas Pro 13 software supports high-resolution 24-bit/192 kHz audio files. In addition, the ability to edit at the sample level enables you to execute ultra-precise adjustments to the audio between the video frames, to remove random pops and clicks or to re-establish sync

          Input Buses
          Record, monitor, and mix audio from external devices via input buses. Use the real-time rendering option to mix audio from external audio devices into your final render

          Envelope Automation Recording
          Record track envelope and keyframe parameters in real time with a mouse or external control surface hardware. Choose between touch and latch record modes and utilize automatic post-record keyframe thinning. Automation parameter control is available for both stereo tracks and buses, as well as for video track envelopes

          Import, Export, and Media Management

            Project Media Tagging
            Categorize your media with customizable tags. Apply a Media Tag to the entire clip or to a region of a clip. Vegas Pro automatically organizes each tagged clip into appropriately named Media Bins. Quick Search enables instant filtering of media based on a single text field. The Search Media dialog facilitates more complex searches with multiple conditions, and makes the bins it creates smart. Smart Bins update automatically when you change media tags or add new media that matches the search criteria

            Native XAVC and XAVC 4K Support
            Features built-in support for XAVC and XAVC S files with the same drag-and-drop, no transcode simplicity that Vegas Pro users have experienced with other popular formats. For optimal performance with 2K and 4K XAVC or XAVC S content, use the smart proxy HD workflow for full frame rate playback on a wide variety of hardware configurations, from compact laptops to advanced multi-core workstations

            Easy Capturing
            Use the Device Explorer to capture media from nearly any video or audio device into the Vegas Pro application. To add media to your project, simply drag it from the Device Explorer to the Project Media window, the timeline, or the Trimmer window. The powerful browse operation makes it easy to navigate to media on XAVC, XAVC S, AVCHD, XDCAM EX, NXCAM, RED, and P2 cameras

            Support for RAW Photo Files
            Use RAW photo files in your Vegas Pro projects. Download the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack for Windows 7 and Windows Vista to view and edit RAW photo files from a wide variety of DSLR cameras natively on the timeline

            Capture to MXF from SD/HD-SDI Devices
            Capture legacy standard definition formats like Digital Betacam and high-definition formats including HDCAM and DVCPRO 100 video tapes and convert them to MPEG-2 50 Mbps 4:2:2 files which conform to the Sony XDCAM standard. Capture live feeds as XDCAM MXF files and edit them in Vegas Pro, or archive them for future use. The Sony MXF file format is roughly one-fourth the bit rate of other HD compression technologies such as Avid DNxHD or Apple ProRes, so it's more efficient in terms of hard drive storage. Despite its small file size, a MXF file still produces a 4:2:2 image at a full 1920 x 1080 raster

            Streaming support for AVC/MP4 encoder
            Vegas Pro 13 Edit can now render AVC/MP4 files with streaming support; and is compatible with most streaming servers
