The VEGAS Pro video editor is now available by subscription, costs $17 per month
In an attempt to attract new videographers and video editors, Magix is making its VEGAS Pro video editing software available on a subscription basis. The program, which Magix bought from Sony in 2016, costs $600 (£500) to buy outright, but the subscription model gets you access from just $16.67 (£12.42) per month under the moniker VEGAS Pro 365.
The company is offering the new VEGAS Pro 365 application on a 3-month or 12-month subscription contract, with access to all the features of VEGAS Pro 15 and SOUND FORGE Audio Studio 12—the company’s latest audio editing application. The VEGAS Pro 365 model also comes with access to online educational materials, to help newcomers understand how the program works.
Magix says that the 365 version won't replace its perpetual license option—imagine the uproar if it were—but is simply a way to make the application more accessible to a wider range of videographers. A 12-month commitment will get you the $16.67 per month price quoted above, while a 3-month subscription works out to $20 (£15.00) per month.

VEGAS Pro 365 subscription now available: Get started with professional video editing at only $16.67/month
January 18th – VEGAS Creative Software adds a first-of-its-kind video and audio production package to the award-winning VEGAS Pro product line. The subscription-based-offering VEGAS Pro 365 is priced from $16.67/month.
Focused on the first-time users, this new version offers a complete video and audio editing solution with all the features of VEGAS Pro 15 and SOUND FORGE Audio Studio 12, along with online training courses to learn VEGAS Pro.
The existing versions and 30-day trial version of VEGAS Pro continue to exist.
"With VEGAS Pro 365, we want to make it easier for aspiring video creators and enthusiasts to access professional video and audio production software. With flexible terms and additional services, we seek to fulfil a long-standing demand of our VEGAS Pro fan base" says Gary Rebholz, Product Owner.
For video editors, the new software package includes all the latest features of VEGAS Pro with high-end plug-ins and online training courses to learn to use VEGAS Pro. Users now also have full access to the audio editor SOUND FORGE Audio Studio to add high quality sound to their projects. Video projects can be edited offline within the subscription just like with the perpetual license. Projects also remain fully accessible to users even after expiration and can be easily imported and edited by other versions of VEGAS Pro. All components of the package stay up-to-date with the latest feature and product updates.
After taking over the video editing software VEGAS Pro from Sony Creative Software in 2016, MAGIX has since then released two new versions, VEGAS Pro 14 and 15. The additional offer of VEGAS Pro 365 now makes the product even more accessible. "We will continue to offer and update perpetual licenses of VEGAS Pro. What we want is an additional complete package customized to the needs of first-time users" says Rebholz.
