Sony Creative Software announced the future release of Sony Vegas Pro 12 and Sony Vegas Pro Edit at IBC on September 7th, 2012. They have both been given a Fall 2012 release date. Now, you may ask, what’s the difference between Sony Vegas Pro 12 and Sony Vegas Pro Edit?
Sony Vegas Pro Edit is Sony Creative Software’s attempt at making a more “cost-efficient” program that still has the majority of capabilities that Sony Vegas Pro 12 has. Sony Vegas Pro Edit will feature the same audio and video toolset of Sony Vegas Pro 12, but will not feature the disc-authoring components.

There have been no prices released at this point, but we expect that Sony Vegas Pro 12 will retail for $599 (similar to previous versions) and Sony Vegas Pro Edit will retail around the price-point of between $299 and $399, similar to that of Apple’s Final Cut Pro X, but we could be wrong.
Sony Vegas Pro Edit is being released for the first time to act as a more cost-efficient program, targeting users who cannot afford to drop the $599 for Sony Vegas Pro 12. It’s a sensible move by Sony Creative Software to try and spread into a larger consumer base by offering an editing program with the same toolset of Sony Vegas Pro 12 minus the disc-authoring components.
For most people, the loss of the disc-authoring section of the editing program won’t be a huge deal, but professional video editors will most likely be purchasing Sony Vegas Pro 12.
