Hugh,

Did Sony tech support indicate if/when Vegas would support the rapidly approaching 64bit evolution?

Nary a whisper. I hope soon.

Order of video fx...

Hello all,

This forum is so helpful.

I'm using Vegas 5 and I'm wondering what the best order is for video fx.

As an example I have a dance recital that I'm editing. The main camera is notably overexposed but not irretreavably (sp?) so. I also want to do minor colour correction.

Which would be first. Making the exposure consistent or the colour correction?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

sincerely,


ian

I would do as you said: exposure first, CC second. It's hard to CC first as your exposure changes would affect your CC.

Closed Captioning

Does Vegas support either 608 or 708 closed captioning? I am bidding on some broadcast work which requires closed captioning. I know several services that will add the captioning but am wondering whether I have the capability in Vegas.

Thanks for any wisdom.

Vegas does not do true closed captioning.

Setting thumbnail start times

When choosing still frames for menu button thumnails, I find two annoyances.

1. The drop-down scrubber in the properties menu is imprecise even when stretched across the screen

2. The thumbnails are too small to see subtle differences.

I can follow the link to get a bigger display, use the main video scrubber and manually copy the associated time to the properties menu, but this is time consuming.

Have I exhausted the options here?

Editing 2-Channel Audio in Seperate Tracks?

Alright, this is probably going to sound like a total newbie question, but here goes... I'm using a Panny GS400 and Vegas 6.0b.

If I've recorded two seperate and independant mono audio signals to my stereo mini jack inputs on my camcorder (one mono track on the L channel, and a different mono track on the R channel), what is the best workflow in VEGAS 6 to edit the mono tracks independantly. Can I do something during capture to seperate the channels? Or do I capture the same way I always do, and then split them up into different audio tracks in vegas somehow? Thanks in advance for any tips on this front...

You should be able to captue normally, You may select either channel by right clicking on the event in your time line and pick either R or L by selecting the appropriate one on the channel tab. If you want to cut back and forth between them I might suggest using two copies of the audio on the time line, have one set to left and one right, that way you can cut between the two. However I have never had to do this myself with any legnthy video/audio. I am sure if you wait a bit someone with more experience may shed further light as to how you might go about it. Good Luck!

Yes, do exactly as Devin said. Simply duplicate the audio to a second track, make one of them "Left" and the other "Right" by right-clicking, channels, and the picking left or right.

I do that entire process very quickly by using the Stereo Split tool in Excalibur. The manual process is very fast, though.

Edward, does Vegas make a copy of the original when you edit, as external sound programs do when you invoke them from the timeline? If not, I'd suggest that Bill do this manually before he alters his file.

Thanks Ed. Guess I'll budget the closed captioning service.

Vegas doesn't modify the source file when doing this process. It simply uses a piece of the original file. So just copy it, set the left and right as described, and you don't have to worry about the original file being changed.

But he said he wanted to EDIT the left and right tracks after separating, so I suggest making a backup of the original.

Guys, thanks a bunch, I should have known it would be that easy! And, BTW, when I said "edit," I only meant in the Vegas timeline, which will leave the original file untouched, so no worries on that front. Thanks again!
