Vegas Programmers - How to reference Vegas in Visual Studio etc?

Hello,

Continuing with my exploration of the trial version of Vegas 8, I am delighted to learn that you can create compiled extensions. However, I'm unable to create a reference to the Sony.Vegas.dll COM library which exposes the Sony.Vegas object.

I've tried to add it as a reference in the usual manner but Visual Studio .NET 2003 complains that it isn't a valid assembly or COM object.

I've tried registering the dll using regsvr32 but to no avail.

I've search the registry for "Sony.Vegas" and found nothing.

Is this a limitation of the trial version? (It would be odd to provide the assembly but render it non functional - unless entering a valid serial also modifies other components to enable them).

Has anyone tried COM automation of Vegas 8 yet?

Thanks,

John.

You need Visual Studio 2005 for Vegas 8. VS2003 will work in Vegas 7 and earlier, though.

Thanks, Ed.

I just worked that out this afternoon and logged in here to provide an update! Indeed, on my VS .NET 2003 system it doesn't work but is just fine on my .NET 2005 one.

It would help if Sony stated that (may be they do, somewhere).

(BTW - I bought it today after just one day's testing. I love it - for many refreshing reasons!)
