VEGAS Pro 17 Non Linear Video Editing Software
The main thing though I feel, is that while Vegas Pro was often seen as the poor cousin to the biggies of AVID, Adobe and FCP in particular, it can now throw that shackle off and stand proud in its own right.
Loupedeck + Editing Console
Loupedeck+ is a dedicated photo and video editing console putting everything you need at your fingertips – with a caveat. It comes preconfigured only for Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Lightroom and Audition, Final Cut Pro X, Capture One and Skylum: Aurora HDR.
We reviewed the Loupedeck + and liked it very much. Whilst it will not work on all NLEs (such as Vegas Pro), if you are an Adobe or FCP-X fan, It is highly recommended as a way to speed up your work flow.
