Additionally, you can select "CRTL+SHIFT+B" to show the master video bus.
Right click to insert the fade envelope, and then fade all video at that point.

when you say missing the first instant replay is it; playing black, going right past it and playing the next scene or what. Please a bit more info about what its doing-HOWEVER while waiting also check those track and see if for some reason you have them muted or the opacity level is down to 0 or something else like that just to make sure.

And a much easier solution than mine :-)
Thanks for the suggestion Douglas.

The stock mic that comes with the A1 doesn't have much low end to begin with.

Thanks for the reply Don,
What happens is the following, when it gets to the first instant replay part, I use PIP to split to different pieces up (the replay and the current footage). When it gets to the replay part, it just goes on (with no skipping or anything) as though nothing has been done at all, it completely ignores the PIP that I have. Then when it goes on to the second one, a few minutes later, it is completly fine. Also, when I am viewing the first instant replay in the preview screen, it works perfectly fine, so I am guessing it has something to do with the rednering process.

Thanks for your reply

So when you preview it it's OK but when you render it doesn't work out as in the preview?

HMMMMMM, let's take some wild guesses. FIRST what format are you rendering to AVI then MPEG or straight to MPEG?

SECOND, do you have the PARENT/CHILD relationship enacted on he trackes that aren't working?

THIRD, the 2nd PiP or instant replay - is it on other vid tracks.
In other words do you have the base footage on say track 7 and the PiP instant replays on tracks 5 and 6 and then track 3 and 4 etc.

The reason I ask is perhaps somewhere in there something is either turned on or off that shouldn't be and it really doesn't show in preview.

My experience is that if it works in preview it works in the finished product.

Take one more look thru just to be sure that everything is ON or OFF as it should be.

1. It doesn't matter what format I render to, it is always the same outcome

2. I haven't done anything to alter the parent child status.

3. The instant replay is on different tracks. I'll give a basic run down.

I have the subclip of the instant replay on track 3, then I have the CURRENT footage playing on track 5, but deleted from track 1 to allow the instant replay screen to show up. And then finally on track 7 I have the instant replay screen

I've got a quick appointment this AM then I'll try to duplicate what you've got going here and see what happens-stay tuned.

Vegas' Script Question

Hello,
I have a question concerning the 'script' command under tools' menu for 6.0d. I'm new to the 'Vegas' scene. I recently installed VASST Gearshift latest version but the script line doesn't show up in Vegas 6.0d under Tools.
I have the movie studio + dvd platinum edition. Is it corrupt installation of Vegas 6 or should I have the professional version of Vegas in order to see menu item?
ie Tools> Scripting

As I understand it, movie studio doesn't support scripting unfortunately. :(

This may sound like a dumb question but which one (Vegas) has the script command on the Tools menu?

Scott,
I did a real quickie similar I think to what you've got going and everything came out fine-not only in Vegas but also in DVDA-granted it was very short and probably isn't exactly what you have done but I used various PiPs on my main footage and threw it in as an "instant replay" and I cannot duplicate the problem you're having.
I gotta tell you, I'm fresh out of ideas-It sounds like the track is muted but you said that in the Vegas preview it works so it can't be that. Perhaps you can redo just that 1 PiP instant replay that isn't showing and try it again. Don't have to redo the whole project just the 1 peice -bring it in fresh and see what happens. I wish I could give you a definitive answer.

Good Luck,
Don

Only the full version of Vegas supports scripting. None of the "Movie Studio" versions do.

Vegas Movie Studio (standard and Platinum) are only up to version 6.0b

The full version of Vegas is now at 6.0d

Excalibur VS Ultimate S For Multicam

I will be editing my first multi cam event next week and am looking hard at both of these plugins to ease the process. What are your thoughts and experiences with these two? I am leaning towards Ex due to the strong support over the years on these forums and Mr Troxel's generous contributions to my knowledge through his posts and newsletters. Than again DSE has also provided a ton of info.......





Thanks guys, I'll have a look at the videos and demos.

All four multicam editing plug ins offer demos. You might find that a good means to find what works best for you.
