I know this is normal for company-written/hosted comparisons, but the number of blatant lies in this comparison is bold even for that. I'm surprised MAGIX is hosting this themselves.

Fairlight does Multi-Track Recording.

Resolve has supported GPU Decode/Encode on Intel for years. AMD was added last, in Resolve 16. We're basically on Resolve 17, now.

Resolve's starting price is $0, for the Free SKU, and they don't charge for upgrades - so no need to sell VEGAS Pro 365 as if it's some benefit over the competition. The updates don't come with enough to make that subscription worth almost the cost of a Premiere Pro CC Single App Subscription.

And saying VEGAS is recommended for someone who wants an all-in-one solution, or that it's Pros over Resolve is More VFX Tooling and Effects. Come on... You cannot be serious.

Nothing integrates well with Adobe applications but Adobe applications. Fabricating ignorable Cons in an attempt to make that part of the "comparison" look "balanced" doesn't work so well... when it's this transparent.

There are ways to compete, it's called getting better and implementing features users want to pull them off of competing products or onboard them into the market with your products. Posting a comparison charge that seems like it was written by someone who watched a few fanboy videos is a pretty low bar to accomplish...

The comparison is making it seem like VEGAS Pro doesn't have tons of issues playing back footage at full frame rates. Like it has GPU Acceleration on par with Resolve. Like it's OFX and Algorithms are even close to comparable with what BMD is delivering. Like their "Computational" stuff (marketing speak) is comparable to DaVinci Neural Engine (actually a thing).

And VEGAS Pro is worthless to Post Production Professionals, unless they only deliver to YouTube and Home Theatres - not to mention the Audio Editing tooling, metering, etc. just isn't there to get the job done. Resolve leapfrogged VEGAS Pro in the Audio Post areas 2 versions ago, when the Fairlight page began existing, and completely buried it last version. At this point, it's almost Nuendo (the Post Production side) shoved into Resolve Studio.

Less ridiculous "comparisons." Deliver the features so people don't feel misled when they actually launch the application.

... "I have a much bigger and more powerful one"

I assume that he was referring to having a bigger DELETE key/button.

It is interesting that Vegas has published these comparisons - and there's nothing wrong with that - it's marketing after all. Comparative marketing/advertising is nothing new. Remember, "Where's the beef?" as being a succinct advertising comparison?

With all the comparisons of Vegas Pro to many other NLEs made on this forum over recent years, the fundamental failure of some to understand is that customers (us) have a choice. It's the same when buying a car. If you have a large family, a Merc Smart Car is probably not going to be a practical choice. If you want a small city runabout, a Toyota LandCruiser probably won't appeal. Or if you want a car to impress your clients, a BMW 7 or Audi A8 is probably going to be a better choice than, say, a Mazda 3 (or if on a severe budget, a used Datsun 120Y).

There are a number of NLEs on the market each with advantages and disadvantages. Work out the balance which works best for you and go with that NLE. Going back to the car example, there's no point buying a Toyota Camry (which is a great car) and then complaining that it doesn't have the same performance as a Suburu WRX.

No NLE is going to be a Jack-of-all-Trades because it would then most likely end up being a Master-of-None. The only way an NLE could possibly be a be-all-and-end-all is if all the NLE companies got together and developed a single comprehensive combined NLE with absolutely 'everything' on board - and that then would be the only NLE on the market worldwide. Having a stranglehold on the market, the cost would likely be so unaffordable that only those with extremely deep pockets or in medium to large businesses who would be able to afford it. And you would be trapped as there would be no alternative if your needs changed.

To address the often used argument that Resolve (basic) is free, remember that BMD is primarily a successful and respected hardware manufacturer - Resolve (either free or Studio for a one-off purchase price) is effectively a loss-leader for the company. If BMD's product line was limited to only NLEs, how long would they survive in business with such a free or low-cost purchase price arrangement? And note that Premiere Pro and Avid are not free.

Interesting takes. Let's dive a little deeper:

Quick Hits:

1. Resolve Studio supports GPU Decode and Encode Acceleration with Intel GPUs, since years ago. VEGAS Pro's comparison omits this in multiple places.

2. Resolve Studio has full ACES Support.

3. Resolve | Fairlight has Multi-Track Recording. In multiple places, this comparison states that it is not there - and blatantly so.

4. "GPU Acceleration for AVC and HEVC" - Stated as "No" for Resolve Studio. This is blatantly false.

5. It also states the uses the recommended requirements for Resolve while using the minimum requirements for VEGAS Pro. This is misleading, but really doesn't matter, as most people using Resolve will have a decent machine, anyways..

Pricing:

Omits Resolve's Free SKU. Doesn't hesitate to mention VEGAS Pro 365 to downplay the higher cost of VEGAS Pro in comparison to Resolve Studio. Touche.

Editing:

VEGAS was designed from the ground up to edit like a DAW, before they changed their mind and decided to do Video. That's why it's different. That is all. People who learned on VEGAS will prefer it simply due to familiarity and the fact that other DAWs will generally not perform some actions/functions the way VEGAS is set up to - for historical reasons. People who learned on Avid, Premiere, and others editors will prefer "traditional" because VEGAS is not logical in several areas coming from traditional NLEs.

People often say that editing on VEGAS Pro teaches you bad habits, because of this. I see it often where new users to other NLEs ask for things to change in the workflow based on what VEGAS does. This rarely ever comes from people who are coming from other NLEs.

For example, Auto Fades (Transitions). These are common in DAWs (though often off-by-default, for a reason), but they're actually pretty terrible for video editing where you don't really want to create and edit transitions in this way - esp. when frame-level accuracy is the goal (not only for video, but also for lining up audio). This is touted as an advantage, but only if you buy into a fairly amateur way of editing that won't generally hold up well with any consistency under the scrutiny of more discerning viewers/reviews. Sound engineers notice these bad auto transitions when working on a timeline, for example, and often have to fix things because of them.

Interface Flexibility:

VEGAS Pro still has really rigid docking, and you can't even maximize windows on a second display to make a nice 2-display setup. Frankly, I don't think it is much better than Resolve when it comes to interface flexibility. Resolve's dual-display support is more usable than VEGAS Pro's, and it does support more than two displays. You might want a 3rd for your Scopes, and a 4th dedicated to video monitoring. This works.

Timeline:

Separating Video and Audio Tracks is done because the order of tracks affects the edit different for each track type. Additionally, when you are doing higher end video production, simply putting audio tracks everywhere makes no sense and does nothing but create an incredibly messy and disorganized timeline. This is not a good thing, especially when you're working collaborative and the other person isn't familiar with how you randomly mix these tracks up.

Putting anything anywhere works great for Jane's relatively simple Wedding Video Edit, but it doesn't work well on more complicated projects that use Video, VFX, Dialog, Foley, Music, Sound FX, ADR, etc.

Example - 7 Video Tracks and 24 Audio Tracks.

GPU Acceleration:

VEGAS Pro is the only editing app leveraging Intel, AMD, and Nvidia graphics cards to decode AVC and HEVC video for real-time playback, as well as accelerate numerous GPU-enabled effects, so you get smoother playback even in complex.

^- Nothing inaccurate about that statement, right? Also states that Resolve Studio only uses Nvidia and AMD for GPU Acceleration for these formats, which is false. Intel has always been supported.

Love the statement about Real-Time Playback, juxtaposed against the forums - full of complaints about people not being able to get real-time playback. Not to mention, VEGAS is pretty much known for having bad playback performance, at this point... That's going to be a hard sale to anyone with a search engine.

Storyboards:

Obliterated by Multiple Timelines and the Cut Page.

Media Management:

Ignorable, and VEGAS Pro has practically none and VEGAS Prepare is yet to exist for customers.

Color Correction:

VEGAS Pro adopts the Academy Color Encoding Systems (ACES) 1.1 standard developed by the MPAA, designed to be the industry standard. DaVinci Resolve uses Resolve Color Management, a non-ACES environment.

Nothing misleading about that statement, right?

Resolve has full ACES support, BTW. It also supports Dolby Vision.

Visual Effects:

This whole section is pretty much ignorable and simply desperately trying to make the two seem as if what they offer within certain segments is equivalent, when this is absolutely not the case. Anyone who uses or has used these two products knows that Resolves Trackers, Keyers, Noise Reduction, Stabilizers, etc. are just... far superior to what VEGAS Pro offers. Otherwise, they wouldn't be trying to sell it by including 3rd party products within those segments as a bonus.

The idea that VEGAS Pro is stated to have more VFX and VFX Tooling than Resolve Studio, which has 95% of Fusion Studio, and actually includes Fusion Studio Stand-alone for free (as of v17), is hilarious. They aren't even comparing with VEGAS Post.

Audio:

I can't even bother to go into detail here, because Resolve | Fairlight is on a completely different level to VEGAS, which is practically a toy in comparison to it. Better Bussing, Far Better Metering, Multi-Track Recording (stated multiple times to not be there, which is blatantly false), Better Editing, Better Effects, Support for Bigger Surround Setups and Dolby Atmos, etc. Literally usable for any type of work - from large surround setups for feature films, to recording an Orchestra (#MarketingSpeak).

DaVinci Resolve supports setting up and round-tripping with external Audio Editors. The setup is similar to VEGAS Pro and it does it in a similar way, from the Fairlight Page.

Automation is definitely superior in Resolve | Fairlight. Really, Comparing VEGAS Pro with Fairlight is like recording iMovie to Cubase Pro. As far as Audio, I don't even consider the two products to sit within the same product segment.

GPU Acceleration:

DaVinci Resolve also leverages your GPU to encode and render effects, but it does not support as large a selection of GPUs as VEGAS Pro.

Let me guess... There is nothing inaccurate about that statement. This is rich tho, considering VEGAS Pro literally had broken GPU support for an entire release, which is what drove a lot of people to consider Resolve in the first place.

Share Online:

Facebook was removed from most services after the Cambridge Analytica Scandal for security reasons. Even services like Xbox and PlayStation removed Facebook sharing.

Pros & Cons:

VEGAS Pro Pros

  • GPU decoding for more real-time playback - Like Resolve Studio?
  • ACES 1.1 environment - Like Resolve Studio?
  • Full digital audio workstation - Like Resolve Studio?
  • GPU encoding for faster renders - Like Resolve Studio?

DaVinci Cons

  • Fewer VFX Tools - ...?
  • Fewer Audio Tools - ...?

VEGAS Pro is Recommended For:

  • People making the jump up to pro software - For $599 or a Subscription that costs almost as much as Premiere Pro CC, a superior NLE? Oh, and vs. Literally Free Resolve.
  • Small and large video production companies - With Literally no Collaborative Tools, which have just been made freely available to all in ... Free Resolve.
  • Post-production professionals - You're going to be limited to Wedding Videos and YouTube Content. VEGAS Pro is worthless to Post Production Professionals - General things with low channel count and where people are less discerning of quality differences. VEGAS' Plugins and Tooling are extremely dated, and just not that good. No decent metering, etc. Mediocre Audio Editing. No ADR. I don't know why any Post Production Professional would consider VEGAS Pro for this type of work. Spend that $599 on Pyramix Pro, instead..
  • People needing an all-in-one solution - I. cannot. even...
  • Audio editors - Why pay $599 for this when you can get WaveLab Pro for cheaper; or Samplitude Pro Suite/Pyramix Pro for a comparable price?

DaVinci Resolve is recommended for: 

  • People who work primarily with ProRes or DNxHD - Lol. Let's all run to crack out our wallets for that feature! /eyeroll

My .02 cents is this. Its a good idea to own more than 1 NLE because when there are time one NLE can't cut your footage and the other NLE can. Last week I was working on some 8K drone h264 footage. Import that into Vegas Pro 18, create proxy and am getting terrible preview, stutter and the the preview look like a corrupted file. Then, I try to import that into Resolve studio16. I got full frame rate 8K preview and cut it like butter. There are a lot thing to like in Vegas Pro as well. Its just not in the same level in editing performance, like Resolve.

NickHope wrote on 11/12/2020, 11:28 PM

For what it's worth, these were some of my stumbling blocks as a VEGAS user, when I tried Resolve a few months ago:

  • No ripple editing.
  • No auto cross-dissolve. Have to manually drag transitions.
  • No ability to use lossless formats such as MagicYUV or UTVideo. Won't decode or encode.
  • Have to manually set aspect ratio of HDV clips.
  • Can't make just MOUSEWHEEL or SHIFT+MOUSEWHEEL do timeline zoom.
  • Cannot make ENTER do play/pause timeline (so my mouse thumb button doesn't work (which I have set to ENTER)).
  • Dark grey text on dark grey background is very difficult to read.
  • Need paid Studio version to export H.265.

I tried Resolve mainly for the color correction, but was rather disappointed in the ability to accurately control black points and white points, to the extent that I've returned to doing my color correction with the "old" (non-CGP) Color Curves in VEGAS.

Davinci Resolve is getting better day by day in all aspect from Edit tab, fusion & fairlight. It just work.

 

VEGAS introduce coloring panel, motion tracking, denoiser etc that is not really excel well. The warp stabiliser introduced in VP16 fixed properly in VP17 with few updates later. The motion tracking in VP18 still far from perfect. There is no yet solution for editor to fix jagged mask without destructing the tracking data, cant send beziere mask data to other media in VP18.

I'm really surprised VEGAS can introduce this heavy" Style Transfer FX" that required AI but not a simple Luma Keying FX or new type of deform FX that reflects/mirror the video infinitely which used alot in industry. (This FX come as default in all NLE out there except VEGAS)

 

Yes, we can appreciate VEGAS Pro crazy fast workflow which what NLE supposed to be, but for how long?

In your comparison you're using hardware encoding and decoding on Vegas, but you're comparing Free Resolve that doesn't have hardware encoding or decode, so it's must do it in software. A more accurate comparison would have been both vegas and Resolve doing a software encode, Resolve's performance still hamstrung by the lack of decoder, but that would have been more interesting.

What you're basically showing is hardware decoding and encoding is faster than software decoding and encoding, but that's obvious. Although you don't have the studio version of Resolve you must also realise it's obvious that resolve with hardware decoding and encoding will be faster for that particular test. Not always faster though, it's easy to get a 100% GPU bottleneck with resolve and a mid price card dependent on what you're doing, but again, you have a high performance card, so with your PC Resolve studio is likely always to be faster
