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.
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.
