Becoming a YouTube creator can be difficult.

It takes quite a bit of time and effort to become a full-fledged YouTube creator, and when you add in the cost of professional editing software, it can also become pretty expensive. Humbe Bundle’s newest deal has a couple of great editing software packages that, if you or someone you know is serious about getting into creating YouTube for the purpose of monetization, is a great place to start.

For $20, which acts as Humble Bundle’s most expensive tier, people will receive:

  • VEGAS Pro 14 Edit
  • MAGIX Vintage Effects Suite
  • MAGIX Video Sound Cleaning Lab
  • Xara Photo & Graphic Designer
  • Music Maker Hip Hop Beat Producer
  • Soundpool: Stranger Synths

Those are just a few of the software titles that come with the $20 bundle. It’s important to note that there are other editing software programs available to free to download. Many people still use QuickTime or PhotoShip Lite to get what they need done. This bundle is really for people who want to learn how to work with proper editing software and create high caliber videos.

Of all the software being made available for $20, it’s VEGAS Pro 14 Edit that’s of the most interest to YouTubers. VEGAS Pro 14 Edit typically sells for $399. It’s one of the more popular editing software suites among YouTubers, but note that it’s only for those using Windows PCs. If you’re working with a MacBook, Apple has its own creative suites, and many professional YouTubers or editors will point you to Adobe’s suite. Adobe’s editing suite, which includes PhotoShop, InDesign and Premiere, can be extremely pricey, however, and if you’re looking into running any of those programs, your best bet is a monthly subscription package.

Humble Bundle’s deal will save you just under $1,000 — if you were looking to purchase a number of these software programs. Alternatively, if you just want the Stranger Things synth package, you can pledge $1 for that and receive it for $19 off.

The bundle runs through Dec. 27.
