FX Bypass Shortcut Key?

Does Sony Vegas Pro have a keyboard shortcut key to toggle the FX Bypass in the preview window?

I just checked the help files and it doesn't appear that there is shortcut key for this function.

I looked and it's also not an option you can manually add to a keypress. I did a really quick look and also did not see anything in the programming API to do this.

Thanks guys, hoped it was possible, when I grade I constantly toggle FX Bypass on/off to see the results of the changes I make, a shortcut really would have helped. Bummer on the API Edward I guess that means no scripting magic - it's a sad day.

Re: FX Bypass Shortcut Key?

Won't using split screen preview help you to see the before and after?

Does it really take that much longer than using a keybpard shortcut to tick and untick the FX in the chain, especially as this means you can by-pass an FX in the middle of the chain to see how the others on the event stand up with and without it?

Richard yes you can tick the chain on/off but when you do this for a living editing most of your days away efficiency becomes important and there are real health implications with RSI to be taken into account as well. Editing software still has a long way to go to achieve a more natural interface, ticking tiny boxes is a very stupid way to work but it will have to do for now.

Re: FX Bypass Shortcut Key?

Interestingly there IS an Audio Fx bypass control and assignable command.

A before and after option AT the menu level, that is not needing to switch one's concentration away from the creative focus to click a bypass option is unnecessary. Worth a Feature request to SCS. I'd like it.

Grazie

Good idea Graham, I sent in a feature request today, if you would like to see a shortcut key for FX Bypass on video effects follow the link below and submit a request. If we have a few requests hopefully Sony developers will add this to Vegas.
