Table of Contents list

How do I create a Table of Contents/track list that I can then paste into another program (MS Publisher) from the named markers in DVDA 5?

Dan, I'm assuming you have the original Vegas Project? Check out the Edit Details View for MARKERS and copy paste that? Dunno about doing this from within DVDA, what ever flavour . .?

Grazie

Graham, unfortunately that did not work. It shows 298 tracks but no marker labels.

Can you SEE the Markers in Vegas? Where did the marker labels come from? Now I want to understand this.

Interesting

I manually entered them ("M" key) to indicate the start of new items in a live concert recording.

Wow! 298 Tracks!?

Dan? You entered them manually IN Vegas? Then you WILL have a list of these markers in Edit Detail View. I checked this yesterday. Make sure you use the Drop-Down menu in Edit Detail View to select Markers.

It was then a simple case of Highlight the info > Copy > Paste - and for my test it went straight into MS Notepad.

It does work. If not then I am still interested.

Grazie

Thank you for the guidance, Graham. That's what I want. I would have not have thought to look there without someone pointing it out.

Some further observations. I had an out-of-sequence marker, #28, between #7 & #8. (I found out afterwards that I'd missed the start of another track). Well, when I rendered to mpeg-2 and opened it in DVDA 5, the markers were renumbered correctly, with #28 becoming #8. Also, in Vegas 8, using Graham's method of getting a list of marker labels to use as track names, marker #28 was in the list as the 8th item, so it was usable without needing to be relocated.

Hi Dan. If you ever want to reorder the markers in Vegas so that the numbers are in running order, there is a way to do it.

In the Edit Details window, with Show Markers selected, select all the rows and then Ctl-X to cut them, then Ctl-V to paste them back again. When they are pasted back they willl be in sequence. Try it out on a dummy project first until you see how it works, because you can't undo this.

Richard, I've tried this in Vegas 8b and it doesn't seem to work. In Edit Details | Markers, I see two columns: Position; Name. I can select a range in a column using the shift-key, and using this at the beginning & end of a column, I can select the whole column, but I can't select both columms at once, nor can I use Ctrl-A to select everything. Furthermore, once selected, while copy & paste are available, cut is grayed out.

Correction: just found out how to do it. You need to select the range of gray numbers on the the left. That selects both columns and you can then Ctrl-x. See example:

Hi Dan. Yes that's right, it's just not so obvious at first. Glad you got it working.

The marker NUMBERS really don't make any difference. It's the POSITION of the marker that counts.
