Sony Vegas Shortcuts


I've compiled a list of shortcuts which mightbe of interest. It can be accessed on Edward Troxel's jetdv site at:-

The list shows the main shortcuts that can be used in Vegas using the keyboard, the mouse and the number keypad. None of them are new but I've listed them under the relevant editing processes as I think this makes for easier reference even if it means that some entries have had to be repeated.

I have this as a Word Document of two pages which means that it can be printed back to back on A4 paper and kept handy for reference when working (I've laminated mine to preserve it from wear and tear).

Merry Christmas to you all,

Richard Jones

Having been a Vegas user for a good few years now, I must confess that I am not an active user of shortcuts, for no reason other than I never got round to learning them. I think that will be one of my new years resolutions - to learn (and use) a new shortcut each day for a few months. May have more success than with the 'must lose weight' one . . .

The chart is very useful, Richard - although it is for version 6 of Vegas. Are there any significant changes in v8, I wonder?

The vast majority remain the same from version to version. Of course, newer version will add newer ones as well. Plus, some are preference specific - for example the Space Bar where mine is set to play/pause but the default is play/stop.
