Well I went back to a really simple intro for now, but just downloaded a trial copy of combustion to play with. Same week my stock fooftage and RF music library shows up (good week on ebay), so I guess I have plenty to play with now.

Thanks Ian & Peter,
Looking at what this program will do has me salivating.
And the price is incredible compared to some other simular programs.

Peter, does PI support dual-screen "window dragging"? Do you think my ATI 9800 XT will run it properly?
Is keyframe animation easy in PI?

Thanks in Advance.

DVD VOB Files into Vegas ??

When bringing unprotected VOB files into Vegas, I drag it to the timeline and it creates the video track successfully. How do you get the audio portion of the VOB file onto an audio track?

I had the same problem.
Try the guide from this site:
http://www.videohelp.com/virtualdubaudio.htm
Just paste the wav file below the video layer.

Thanks Johan:

So are you suggesting that the only way to get the audio from the VOB file is by using a program like Virtualdub?

Does anyone know of a way to do it in Vegas or DVD Architect??

u dont..

u have to extract the audio or demux the vob unless the audio is PCM

a small app like BeSweet works wonders.. even extracts 5.1 stresm into seperate waves.

Your problem is that the DVD contains AC3 audio. Vegas will not import AC3 so you have to convert the audio into something Vegas WILL import.

Why not just use the Flash transition? There's three built-in presets: Hard, Soft, and Yellow

I downloaded BeSweet version 1.5b29 which I found here

http://dspguru.doom9.net/

Johan, I also downloaded VirtualDub 1.5.1 and willtry them both.

I guess it would be a lot easier if I plugged my external DVD player into the S-Video of my capture card. But then I would of never learned about these apps.

Thanks Guys,

Ray

Script for audio adjustments?

Hi All,

Great forum and very helpful.

I have a project - 2 1/2 hour dance recital - where I had the audio run into the wide-angle camera at the back of the auditorium. Unfortunately the sound guy was unwilling to boost the level through to the camera so we were maxed on the audio signal... sigh, anyway, I have 16 bit audio going into the right channel. It's nice and clean but low. I have room ambience through the other camera but I was wondering the following.
Is there a script that would take the soundboard audio channel (track 4 in each instance) make it stereo and then boost the levels to something acceptable and apply it to all 49! of my 2.5 minute clips without me doing it all myself one at a time? Dear God, somebody please say yes.

Thanks for listening.

sincerely,


ian

Philippe,
On the last frame that is stopped try saving a "best/full" screen capture of that frame. Either do the B/W effect in an image editor or Vegas. Then drag the image on the timeline and do your flash transition with the velocity clip (there are other ways to create a flash effect). If the velocity envelope is set at 0 at the time of the screen cap you should be able to drag that clip a little further to give you room for the transition. That is how I have done what you have described.

I usually use a camera shutter-sound effect at the "flash" point and sometimes will do about a 10-15 % zoom and a slight rotation on the screen capture after the flash for added effect (depending on the quality of the screen-cap).

Hope this helps.

Shane
