Activity Forums VEGAS Pro Cut/Paste between projects (?)

  • Cut/Paste between projects (?)

    Posted by Kelly Griffin on June 9, 2023 at 5:10 pm

    I’m used to minimizing Vegas and opening a new instance of it to cut material from one timeline in one instance to a different timeline in another instance.

    Now, if I minimize the first instance I can’t see a way to open a new one. Is there a different way now to cut and paste from one timeline to another?

    When you are saying a new instance, do you mean like a new Window where you can open a 2nd project? If you were working with 2 screens for instance, you can have both instances/projects up simultaneously. Maybe some screenshots can help me understand the main issue. Hope to hear from you soon!

    To open a new instance when you already have a project open you right click on Vegas Pro in your Taskbar and either click on “Vegas Pro 20.0” or one of your recent projects. That should launch a new instance. Don’t think anything has changed in this process from the earlier versions of Vegas.

    However, something that is relatively new for Vegas Pro is nested timelines where you’re essentially making a project within a project and you can jump between the two with a couple of buttons (by default under timeline – last 3 buttons). That process has a bunch of caveats though and I’m personally not a fan of how it’s implemented in Vegas – I don’t personally recommend it.
    You can quickly test the workflow by simply dragging one of your previous project files (.veg) in a new project. Then when you select it you can use the aforementioned buttons to open it for editing and to get back to main.

    I assumed one could open multiple projects by “<b style=”background-color: transparent; font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit; color: var(–bb-body-text-color);”>Nesting projects”? This is no longer the case with the current versions? In this way, one could copy and paste from one project to another, as I have done.

    (I still use Sony Vegas 13 Pro)
