VEGAS Pro 19 has debuted, and the popular NLE gets an updated UI, cloud-connected video and audio content, simplified pricing options, and much more.

VEGAS Pro may have started off as an audio-only editing app over two decades ago, but quickly added video capabilities and was off and running. Throughout its storied history, the developers worked to add news features, often staying ahead of the competition. And version 19 introduces a whole host of new features, while refining current ones. 

VEGAS Creative Software has simplified things by offering three options, VEGAS Edit, VEGAS Pro, and VEGAS Post. We'll dive into each option shortly. But one of the first things you'll notice is the user interface has changed, and has really streamlined the video and audio editing experience, along with improved visual effects, audio tools, titles, and more.

The NLE also has plenty of features to edit and finish any type of project, from a travel video or vlog to a high-end car commercial or even a feature film. Additionally, the access to royalty free HD video (up to 4K for VEGAS Post subscribers) and audio content is really great, and it's easy to find the clips or audio you need for your project.
