Vegas Post 18 vs Vegas Pro, HitFilm Pro, Ignite Pro, Imerge Pro?
What are the differences between Vegas Post 18 vs Vegas Pro, HitFilm Pro, Ignite Pro, Image Pro? I currently Own Vegas Pro 18 Suite (and older version) and Ignite Pro. I read that HitFilm Pro has integrations for Vegas. If I buy HitFilm Pro and Image Pro (I already own Ignite Pro), what will I be missing that Vegas Post 18 has? I learned in one of the fxhome community forums that HitFilm Pro comes with Mocha HitFilm which is not available in Vegas Effects. If I want everything that both FXHome products provide and Vegas Pro, do I have to buy both? I should probably try the new version of HitFilm Pro trial to see what it does. When I use an application I don't usually know everything that it does, but figure out what I need to know at a later date as I need it. I will not know everything that can be done and may miss out one some really cool stuff if I don't get a general background on it. I am trying to plan my purchases out. I think I was planning on buying HitFilm Pro with the hopes that with Ignite Pro, it would get my closer to Vegas Post without having to outlay so much money at once. I still may go that way, but need Image Pro too now. I didn't think I needed Image Pro, since I own CorelDraw/Paint and CorelPainter, but I think now that I need it too, since it would speed up development of videos and have non-destructive editing I think.)
Is the Vega Post 18 upgrade, that is about the same price as HitFilm Pro + Image Pro maybe - will that give me the same functionality and integration as HitFilm Pro + Ignite Pro + Image Pro? I may not be getting an upgrade discount for Vegas Post from Thanskgiving to Christmas this year, unless Magix decides to give it. Not sure what will happen. If I buy HitFilm Pro + Image Pro doesn't that basically give me the same functionality as Vegas Post 18 (since I already own Ignite Pro)? Does Vegas Post 18 have better integration with FxHome products than just buying HitFilm Pro + Ignite Pro + Image Pro to use with Vegas Pro 18? I want it all for the best price and to have deep integration between them to save time.
I also have the free version of Davinci Resolve and may get Fusion 16. (Yea, I want all of the best Video editing and composting tools for the PC, but not using Adobe
Premier or after effects, etc.) I also am big into CorelDraw/Paint 2020 and Corel Painter 2020 and older versions of each. And want to learn or use Blender.
I hope that someone who works at FXHome.com company will respond with a definitive answer to this. Thanks!
