Thanks Gary. That 'Apply Effects' sounds good. I'll check it out.

Cheers
Aaron

You can do the same thing in Vegas that you can do in FCP or Premiere or almost any other NLE system. Personally im a vegas user but I don't see how Vegas will make you a better editor.

I can, however, say that I used to be a FCP user until a friend of mine introduced me to Vegas. I still use both systems to edit but I tend to favor Vegas for the majority of projects.

But again, the program really doesn't matter. I suggest you download a trial version of Vegas 6 and try it out for yourself, There are websites out there that will provide you with a few basic tutorials to help you get a feel for the program. Then decide.

"when I click next, the whole box is shaded" same here...
I have selected OHCI for print device and it says "available", or "connected", or whatever.
I ended up rendering all to another avi and the printing that avi to tape from Vegas5...

"Make sure the camera is on "camera" not VCR."
What? Why?

I'm sure it's related to whatever codec is being used. AVI can cover a variety of codecs. Just because it is an "AVI" file doesn't mean it's what Vegas uses natively which is DV-AVI. Given what you've said of the file, I'd try loading it on the timeline, rendering to DV-AVI, and then editing with the new file.

Snapshot effect in tv's X-treme Home Makeover

Hi. A new guy here. Just started shooting video with my GL-2 and I use Sony Vegas 5 as my editing software. I have been watching the tv show Extreme Home Makeover Edition and was wondering if anybody knew how they did the effect of transitioning from film footage using a "snapshot" or "photo camera" cutaway and they slowly zoom in on the still photo. Usually it's done when there is alot of emotion in the scene and they also usually turn it into black and white from color. Are there any plugins or special tricks to try to re-create this using Sony Vegas?

There's no pre-built transition that does this. You should be able to easily re-create it, though. B&W to Color is easy using two keyframes. You can move/resize the photo using Track Motion or Pan Crop. You can GET the snapshot by clicking on the "Save Snapshot" icon above the preview screen.

5.1 Surround..Help

Can anyone help me with getting 5.1 surround working. I have a 5.1 Audigy card. I have followed all the instructions in the Vegas Help files. I am setup correctly according to it. When I pan my tracks I have the surround control for all tracks. When I render it and burn to DVD using DVD Architect I get Dolby Surround on my receiver when it plays, but it's only comming through the left Center and right...No rears. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Teletype text in V5

Hello all,

Does anyone know of a script or a real quick 'n' dirty method of creating a teletype effect with text. I don't know how universal the word teletype is so I'll describe it: I'm looking for one letter at a time to appear at the left of the picture and shunt across to the right as the next letter is typed, like a typewriter.

I have established a way to do this long hand but I'm in urgent need of something for a short project which needs to be delivered in about 9 hours time (9am UK)!! At the moment, being short of time, I'm using a left to right wipe transition, which is what the client is expecting, but if I can quickly achieve the teletype effect I'd like to try that.

All help gratefully received!

Thanks.

Ian . . .

Help please, desperate problem with VASST Celluloid order.

I just placed an order for VASST Celluloid for Vegas 5/6 and got a confirmation email. The problem is I DID NOT get a license key or installer file in the confirmation email. Can someone please help me? Should I have gotten a license key and installer file in my email, or how does it work? I expected to recieve a license key and download link immediately for VASST Celluloid plus the ReelPak1 for Vegas 5/6. What is going on?

Matt,
Good to hear you got it sorted. I bought Celluloid last week and was impressed by the fast response - it must have been about 3 min from when I finalised the order to when I recieved the key and Reelpak file - impressive.

Btw, I found Celluloid great. It was just what I was after.

Cheers,
Kyle

The problem was gmail. Gmail is blocking emails for some reason. Everything is ok now. There was real person at VASST who answered my phone call and straightened it out for me. Big kudos to VASST for helping me get this worked out.

Check the VASST site and look for the following Vegas project files (.veg):

Text Crossing the Screen

KaraOke Text Wipe effect

CRT Text

Wordproccesor effect

Type effect

Tickertape

Note: Copy the exact text above into the Search box, otherwise it'll take weeks to review all the Veggies on VASST's "improved" website (not to complain, they provide a valuable service for free; it just used to be easier to find things before they "improved" it).
