Vegas Pro is a video editing program made for non-linear editing. The program does not require other hardware for it to properly run on the computer. It consists of all the basic features of a video editing software, including additional features, such as multi-cam editing, image stabilization, and rich effects. It also has Sync Link, a feature that enables editors to synchronize several clips on the editing timeline. The suite includes both 2D and 3D video effects and transitions. Editors can create and edit stereoscopic 3D projects, too. The auto-correct features aids in editing by applying carefully calculated adjustments to the project in the event that there are inconsistencies in the video footage.

Aside from video editing, the program is also a powerful tool for audio production. Some of the features include unlimited tracks, metering, punch-in recording, a wide range of audio effects, and surround sound mixing and encoding.

Vegas Pro allows customizing the keyboard according to the editor’s preferences. Keyboard shortcuts can be changed and shared with other Vegas Pro users. The application supports various capturing, importing, and exporting devices. These include DV, DSLR, HDV, XDCAM, R3D, and AVCHD.

Vegas Pro also acts as a disc authoring application. The disc burning tool included in the program allows writing audio and video content on CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Ray discs.
