Also, while it's not something I use, professional EDL support would be good. I understand Vegas lacks a bit in this department.

One thing that's also always annoyed the hell out of me is the crap plugin/effects usage. Especially when you try and keyframe effects within the effect edit window. It doesn't seem too intuitive and the general usability is pretty poor.

I just thought of a few more things:

-The ability to select mult. key frames and change their values
-More advance "save with media" options. For example, the ability to route your files into folders (A Captured Video folder and a sound one for example). Right now, Vegas simply dumps all your files into the folder that you specify.

<<<-- Essentially, DVDA wouldn't allow me to change the preset destination action for a particular button one direction (or perhaps two). -->>>

Been having that problem all day. I finally started a new project hoping its me and not the program. I ran into this 3 months ago with another project. You choose the navigation direction, like "up" and make your selection but the button fails to respond after that. Its as if after you make the selection you need to hit an "apply" button for it to take. I was going to post this but figured I would find out the reason before somebody could get back to me.

Strange, I know I shouldn't post this because as soon as I do it will get messed up again but I fixed the problem. You may want to check it out if the .dar file will function at all for you.

I decided to move the one arrow to the other of the other. Then it was pointing where it should be. I moved the arrow back and all the "instructions" followed it!

So I am assuming that DVDA "knows" where each item is relative to the other and assigns this info to "Left, Right, Up and Down" as best it can. Sometimes it must get confused. At those times I make the changes by telling it where I want it to go and it doesnt respond. I moved things about and somehow the progam must have picked up on it. I don't know this is a good fix but it seems to be working.

The "auto" positioning is totally based on location. That's one reason why you can sometimes get strange results until you manually set them.

The dar file worked fine as-is on my machine.

I'd like to see:

When SPLITTING and EVENT and you want to DELETE it prompts you to DELETE the Portion of the event to the RIGHT of the SPLIT; there are many times when I would rather DELETE to the LEFT of the EVENT. It would be nice to hit another KEY to AUTO SELECTS the other side of the event or move back to the RIGHT side. IN essence;

S for Split
KEY for Right Side and Hit Delete

or

S for Split
KEY for Left Side and Hit Delete

I still use V4 but will definatley be getting V6!

(Hope that made sense?)

what your refering to is ripple editing (3 point edit ) find your in point, your out point and a kb shortcut to drop that media on the clip. This works well within the Trimmer, but im not a trimmerist, i do all my work on the timeline.
