T-Bar

There wouldnt happen to be any plug-in for any of the editing programs out there that would add more "Live" type of interface ? Such as adding a T-Bar or assigning clips to buttons and switching between them ?

No, dont mention video toaster.

Thanks for all help.

If by "T-Bar" you mean toolbar, then Pinnacle Liquid Edition reportedly offers a highly-customizable interface. You can add/remove buttons, and assign keyboard short-cuts to just about anything.

Video Toaster. :-))

Don't know if it is active when in NLE mode.

The presence of a T-Bar doesn't guarantee a Pro look nor is it required to achieve that look (whatever that is BTW).

What specifically do you want to achieve that only a T-Bar will allow?

Mike..

I just want to have the interface look similar to that of a live switcher, so kids I teach can use the same interface that they are acustomed to seeing at a production.

Understand. That's why we don't use a VT in the local college video studio. The Grass Valley with a million buttons is still the way to fly.

Here is a reference: http://www.saicom.com/broadcastbulletin/videonics.htm that might make sense for you. Although I generally feel that Videonics equipment is broken somewhere in the design phase and never gets any better.

There are more solutions out there I think. Just do a "NLE T-Bar" search on Google.
