version 8 question

I'm getting frustrated with Vegas 7's handling of filter keyframes. If I have a clip that has several filters stacked and I have set a starting keyframe for everyfilter. Now I want to replicate this stack on another clip.. I have to manually add each filter and then copy the keyframe over one by one.. Does version 8 allow you to copy all the filters+keyframes from one clip and pasting it to another clip?


Any chance that Sony Vegas will be ported to OS X? MacPro+Sony Vegas. That'd be sweet.... The only reason I'm still using a PC desktop is for Vegas..

Is it just one keyframe you have for each filter, ie the values don't change on the timeline? If so you could use a filter package which will save a chain (or stack) of filters along with their settings as a reusable group. Then simply apply that package to other clips, tracks etc as required. This exists in v7 already.

If it's multiple keyframes that animate the filter over time then I guess you're into copy and paste (although the filter packages will save time setting up all the plugins every time.)

Hope that's of use.

I'd have to check this but try copying the original stacked clip and then 'paste event attributes' to all the other clips. I think this should copy all the effects/settings. I'm not 100% on the keyframes if it does that too.

This is the easiest way to do it and it works fine in Vegas 7. Set up the first event. Right-click and select Copy. Then highlight any number of other events, right-click and select Paste Event Attributes. the whole FX stack, keyframes and all will be copied over.
