Scripting: where to enter the info?

I just finished reading Vol 1 Num 1 of the newsletter. An introduction to scripting: Fade in/Fade out. Where do I type in all those texts?

Thanks,

Norris, you just type them into NOTEPAD and then save them with a .js extension for JScript scripts and a .cs extension for C# scripts. The vast majority of the scripts in the newsletters are .js scripts. Also note that Vegas 4 used the "Using SonicFoundry.Vegas" while Vegas 5 and newer use "Using Sony.Vegas" so that one line will need to be changed.

George, the newsletters can be found on my website. There are currently over 30 of them.

What do I do after I save the script? I mean, how do I integrate the script into Vegas? This must be very elementary, but I'm a total newbie, so please bear with me.

Thanks,

Save it in the "Script Menu" folder inside the Vegas folder. Next time you start Vegas it will appear in the Tools - Scripting menu. If Vegas is already running, going to "Rescan Script Menu" will also let it appear. Once it appears in the scripting menu, you can also assign it to a keypress or add it to the toolbar for even easier access.
