Vegas Pro 14 – Layout and Interface

An Introduction to Vegas Pro 14 Video Editing Software

Vegas Pro 14 Post Updated January 2018: Vegas has been around since "Vegas Video 1.0" way back in 2000. I bought my first version, Sony Vegas Pro 8, back in 2007 when I started to really delve into digital and HD video.

After version 13.0, Sony handed over the reigns of Vegas to a company called Magix. They then finally released the long awaited Vegas Pro 14 which I now use.

Vegas Pro just about fits in the professional category of video editors and rightly so. It is actually a pretty powerful editor with:

The plan is for me to add more video editing tutorials, tips and tricks in both Vegas Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro. Hopefully, I can encourage more people to start not only shooting more video but to get creative with what you have captured.

Things I will cover include:

    Basic edits (brightness, contrast etc)

    Colour correction
  • check
