Re: Vegas 9 Import XML Scripts

Sadly this didn't work. The script runs but throws up an error.

Anyone got any ideas why this doesn't work?

And... is it just me or have Sony made it REALLY HARD to move your edit between Vegas and any other app?

Ben, that script dates back to 2006 so my guess is that whatever changes Sony has made to the scripting API since then is responsible for the error message.
We'd need a script guru like Edward Troxel to tell us for sure.

I don't think it's just Sony.
I've read numerous complaints on other Vegas forums about folks who use different NLEs and have similar problems doing this.

Re: Vegas 9 Import XML Scripts

I haven't tried running those scripts in 10. I do know that there are some changes between 9 and 10 but nothing really major. There were only a few minor changes I needed to make to Excalibur to make it fully functional in 10 and it was mostly reading the audio presets. What error does it throw?

Re: Vegas 9 Import XML Scripts

Guys

Thanks for your replies. This is insanely frustrating as there seem to be three paths to move simple edits between Premiere and Vegas - AAF, XML and EDL; and none of them work, but all for different reasons.

The XML format apparently has different versions that are either "project" or "sequence"; so maybe Premiere makes the wrong kind of file.
