    Howdy Vegas folks! We’ve had a lot of requests for uploading project files as part of the troubleshooting process. We’ve supported .zip files for ages, but after a number of requests from members using After Effects and Cinema 4D, we implemented direct .aep and .c4d file upload — no need to zip first. They’re telling us it’s working well!

    While we have Vegas at the COW farmhouse, it’s been a while since any of us have, uhm, done any actual work with Vegas. Rofl (Or anything that’s not directly web-related, honestly.) So we used a test file that we threw together in quick and dirty fashion, but we can’t really test this without real files.

    I need a volunteer or two to reply to this, and there at the bottom of the text entry box, you’ll see a file icon. Just click and upload your .veg files to make sure that they go up okay, then download it again to test that we haven’t introduced any alien DNA into it. Sunglasses

    (btw, we’re getting reports that some people aren’t seeing the icons — we’re looking into this! If all you see are blank squares, no worries — the file upload is the third square from the left, just like in the image below.)

    Note that after you’ve uploaded your file, you can click on it to add more details in a lightbox window, similar to the lightbox window for images.

    Speaking of images, we’ve made some BIG improvements in image upload. Try it again if you haven’t in a while, maybe in the Test Posting forum. Start your own thread, or jump on my thread on this very subject, where I tweaked this feature set with one of our members over the weekend.

    I can’t promise that every new feature will show up in the course of making a few posts over the weekend, but hey, sometimes they do!

    This is one that we definitely did with you in mind, so please let me know what you think. And for any other feature requests, head on over to the Letters to The COW Team forum, and we’ll work ’em out there!

    Thanks again for all of your contributions to making Creative COW the thriving, worldwide community that it is!

    Not sure what to test. Zip or just the veg + media.

    Anyway, I will give it a try. Just copied the actual veg + 2 media files and got an error.

    Shows a list of file that are allowed but .veg and jpg not allowed using the Paper clip

    Guess I am doing something wrong

    Upload the error message with the Photo icon

    Thanks for testing with us! Sorry we didn’t get it right the first time, but that’s why it’s a test.

    And for sure .jpg files are allowed. They’re included in the list you showed. I think they were stopped because they were part of the same upload as the .veg.

    Not sure what to test. Zip or just the veg + media

    No need to test zip — that one has also been allowed too. It’s the .veg that’s new.

    When you say “media”, I don’t know if that will work or not. The only video extension we’re currently supporting natively is .mp4, but we can try others. I’ll need a couple of frames to test, so maybe start by uploading those as a .zip, then I’ll download to work with it.

    If you mean the .jpg files, like I said, they’re enabled.

    That said, I didn’t see .veg in the list you posted, so I just reset it. I’ve highlighted that, .jpg and .mp4

    Try it again, see if it works this time?

    Thanks again!

    As I replied to my other post it already had the veg in it so I just added the two bits of media

    Maybe when you reply I will try the Veg and the two bits of media

    The .veg and images all look good to me! All downloading as expected.

    I confess to not having upgraded Vegas in a while so I can’t test the file, but everything about it looks like I’d expect.

    Look good to you too?

    Hey, and thanks again for working with me on this!

    Just a note for anyone downloading these files, the page turn is a BCC Page Turn Transition and not the standard BCC Page Turn. The Standard BCC page Turn will not work as Magix Vegas ( V10 in my case ) does not give it access to other layers in Compositing Mode to select a source from another layer

    OK Tim, well it works for me… Thanks for making these changes
