To use the script Glenn mentioned, YOU would have to manually break it up into the separate sections and add them on multiple tracks below each other. That script will then take those multiple tracks and create a single "takes" track. However, you still have to manually do the splitting.

Not really reversing, but "mirroring" a clip

Hi,

I don't know if it is possible at all, but what I am trying to acheive is to "mirroring" a clip. I don't want to play it backward, I want that all the thing on the left goes to right and vice versa. We can do it easy on still frames in Photoshop but I would like to know if it is possible to do the same trick on a piece of video.

Thank you very much!

Oh I see. Maybe we'll have to wait for Vegas 5.0 for this? Anyway, thanks so much for all your help.

Open Pan/Crop, right-click the image screen, and choose the proper option from the dropdown menu. One option is "Flip Vertical" and another is "Flip Horizontal".

Thanks a lot Edward!

I had not thought of the pan/crop tool. I believed that would be much more complex. Vegas makes the things definitively easier!

What is the AC3 codec for Vegas + DVD? & Is it necessary?

I use Vegas 4.0 without the + DVD, and I heard that the AC3 audio codec is only available with the Vegas + DVD purchase... now my question is what exactly is the AC3 codec? Do you only need it for importing DVDs or is it necessary for all DV productions?

AC3 is the standard audio encoding method for DVDs. You can author them in PCM but they may not be universally compatible. The biggest feature of the Sony AC3 codec is it authors 5.1 surround. It has nothing to do with importing AC3 into Vegas, which won't accept AC3 files anyway.

You are taking the fun out of things being difficult! AND of reading the manual, too.

Thank you for it.

Whats coming up??

Hello all,

Well NAB is coming up fast in April.. Just pondering if Sony will come out with a new update of Vegas to show? Any predictions on what will be new?? How about being able to use Vegas with third party high end capture cards??
I will be attending at NAB in Vegas, maybe will see some of you there.. it is going to be kind of weird to go to the Sony booth for something other than cameras.. Just hope Sony throws money and might, but leaves the independence with the Sonic Foundry group..
Rumours, thoughts ?

Mike

AC-3 is an add-on for Vegas. You can purchase it one of two ways:

1. Purchase Vegas+DVD which gives you the AC-3 encoder AND DVD Architect.

2. Purchase only the AC-3 encoder.

Cost wise, it's more cost effective to buy Vegas+DVD

AC-3 is a way of getting compressed audio onto DVDs. By compressing the audio, you can use a higher bitrate for the video.

NTSC specifications include two allowable audio formats: AC-3 (compressed) and PCM (uncompressed)

PAL specifications include three allowable audio formats: AC-3 (compressed), MPEG (compressed) and PCM (uncompressed)

Due to the transition from Sonic to Sony this year, I doubt very much that you will see anything substantial at NAB---Maybe this summer or early fall. Its been a year since the last upgrade and people are getting a bit impatient but I guess there is little we can do but await the new version.

I can guarantee you that because of NDA's, if anyone tells you anything - they don't know. If they know, they can't and won't tell. We can speculate all day but until Sony makes an announcement, that's all it is: speculation.
