Video editing software packages are a dime a dozen these days, so it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. Only a few programs have received industry-wide recognition and Sony Vegas Pro is one of the best known names in digital film. Because Vegas is not also an analogue film editing suite, few if any feature films have been credited to it, but with the rise of high definition digital video as the sole recording format for the latest movies that is set to change. Professional digital video projects in television have long known the powerful abilities of Vegas.


SYSTEM RECOMMENDATIONS:
While just about any modern computer could run Vegas Pro in principle, for it to usable as a practical content production however, you need to take a few things into account.

The first, broad consideration is whether you will be working with 1080p HD content or newer 4K content. Even the latest high-end systems may choke a bit on 4K video projects, so in general a workstation capable of editing complex 4K projects will require a higher end components across the board.

The second broad consideration is storage speed. Video editing is one type of task that is especially dependent on high-speed storage. This is why a fast solid state drive (SSD) is considered a non-negotiable feature in video editing these days. Fast storage will smooth out the actual process of editing considerably and is well worth the time and frustration it will save you.

Because of the large size of video and on-the-fly transcoding video editing programs RAM should also be capacious. The minimum for HD video is 8GB and for 4K it is 16GB. However, it would be a good idea to double both these figures for a bit of future proofing and especially if you want to cut down on swapping between the SSD and RAM.

Video encoding loves hardware threads, so you really can’t have too many hyper-threaded cores. For an HD workstation the minimum recommended system is a fast hyper-threaded quad-core and for 4K a 16-thread octa core would be a good idea.
Finally, software like Vegas now makes considerable use of GPU acceleration in certain rendering tasks and of course to accelerate the live rendering of effect and previews. This means it is now worth investing in mid-high range GPU cards. In fact, it is a good idea to have a reliable, certified GPU from, for example, the Quadro range and high-performance mainstream card for rendering acceleration. This should provide a smooth and angst-free editing experience.
