New Vegas-After Effects Plug-in

Over the years, I've developed a video editing workflow that involves making a first cut in Sony Vegas and finishing in Adobe After Effects. To help automate the process, I threw together an After Effects plug-in that reads in a Vegas EDL file, de-interlaces the footage with the Deinterlace Blend technique, creates easy-to-manually-adjust comps from the deinterlaced footage & finally inserts the deinterlaced & adjusted footage into the Vegas timeline.

If it may be of use to you, goto http://verstehenvideo.org/aeplugs/

Free but limited support.

Happy Editing!

Hi Paul,

This is fantastic! Can you tell me if your plugin will simply allow me to import a Vegas project that has straight edits with some transitions into AE for tweaking, CCing, etc?

Thanks Paul. Never tried deinterlacing, but you've inspired me to give it a try.

Kevin,

For simple import into After Effects, I'd use Vegas' AAF export capability which works well enough.

The reason to use my plugin would be only if you wanted to deinterlace your source using the so-called Deinterlace Blend method which involves no pulldown, importing a second copy of the footage with field interpretation reversed and comping that to the original with an opacity of 50%.

Years ago, Trish Meyers related the story of a blind test some LUG she was involved with did with all the then known deinterlace techniques and Deinterlace Blend was preferred by the viewers. I still like the look of it and it renders fast. But these days of disappearing interlaced CRTs and Flash video, I figure its best to deinterlace myself and avoid interlaced footage completely.

Satish Kumar - Frameserver. I've read people use this for pumping from Vegas to AE?

Grazie

I'm curious as to how many DVinfo users are using this plugin?
It looks very good in theory.
