    Hi Antti,

    I don’t have Vegas 14 (I have 13), but I believe Vegas plays back clips at project rate. You can see this previous topic:

    Hi Don,

    I don’t have Vegas 14, but I have 13 and I don’t think there’s was much change in the interface between those two versions.
    A couple of things to check:
    Make sure ‘Ignore Event Grouping’ is not enabled by mistake.

    You may have unintentionally removed either the video or the audio from the ‘group’ or cleared the group altogether. If so, you will need to re-group those video and audio events together. Search the help file on ‘Group Events’ if you need more info.

    Hi Dave,

    Although I don’t have Vegas 16 (I have Vegas 13), I believe ‘MediaFX’ means that it applies to the whole ‘clip’ (file) and not just the ‘event’ you have selected on the timeline. Which explains why you are seeing the long delay while analyzing and explains why any event on the timeline from that file has stabilization applied.
    I believe Stabilization can only be applied to the whole clip or a ‘sub-clip’ if you were to make one from the event you wish to stabilize. I would suggest creating a ‘sub-clip’ if that feature is still available in version 16.

    Hi Nick,

    If you just ‘stretched’ your Text event to a new length, it is probably ‘looping’ – there will be little notches showing in the text event.

    You need to lengthen the text event by editing the duration to match the amount you stretched it.


    Then you will likely need to move your keyframes in your color animation.

    I don’t have Vegas 15, but in Sony Vegas Pro 13 if you have a Marker and a Region beginning at the same point, I can click on the endpoint flag of the Region and then ‘Ctrl+Left Arrow’ to move the beginning flag. A Right Click then gives me context menu of the ‘Regions’ and ‘Rename’ can be selected.

    I can find no magic keystroke to toggle between ‘Region’ and ‘Marker’ flag when they align at the same point. But Zooming in a moving one or the other even by a frame, will then allow the ‘Ctrl+Left Arrow’ or ‘Ctrl+Right Arrow’ to step to each type individually.

    Hi Dennis,

    Try adding another 3d Layer/Face and keep one flat and extrude the other, changing colors or texture to your liking on both.

    Hi Rob,

    That looks like the ‘how much you moved an event’ indicator. Or the ‘how much new content added’ when you drop in an event.
    For example, if you click on an event and drag it to the right, that indicator will tell you how many seconds & frames you moved it (if you have your default time setting to SMPTE).
    Say for example, you needed to make room for a 2 second clip to insert, this would help you know by how much to move the existing event.

    If you have auto-ripple enabled and delete an event, it should also tell you how much it moved items to close the gap.

    Hi John,

    What happens if you Solo Track 3? (Click the “!” in the tracker header)
    If you don’t see that event in the preview window when your cursor is somewhere in that event then something is wrong.
    Following up on Wayne and Graham’s thoughts, let’s look closer at the video event on Track 3. Click on the Video Event on Track 3. Right Click -> Switches. Is ‘Mute’ checked?

    If so, it will not show. When I mute an event, it turns gray like your picture.

    There are many different ways to achieve the same results and all of us have our own workflow techniques, but based on your initial description, may I suggest a change in your workflow?
    Instead of messing with Composite envelopes to cut between the two Video tracks, why not split/cut the upper video event to reveal the lower? Cutting events are non-destructive to the media file.
    If I have 2 cameras and I want to cut between them, I go to the frame I want to make the change. Select the top Video event (you should see it in the preview), hit the ‘S’ key to split the event. Vegas automatically selects the event to the right of the split. Then I ‘Mute’ the rest of the event on that track. Notice I have the Event ‘Mute’ function mapped to the ‘Alt+M’ hotkey in my picture above?
    Then I scrub through the video (the lower video event is now showing in the preview) and when I get to the frame where I want to switch back to the top-level video event, I hit the ‘S’ key again to split the event, “ALT+M” will ‘un-Mute’ the muted event. Now the top video track event is showing again.
    And if instead of a hard cut, you want to do a fade – simply apply grab the small triangle in the top left of the event and drag to the right to make a fade in.

    Happy editing.

    Regards,
    –Doug

    Hi Sarah,

    PluralEyes is an awesome tool. PluralEyes matches audio from multiple files, both video with audio and audio alone and then synchronizes them (lines them up) on its timeline.
    They can be all out of order and it often lines them all up perfectly.
    I have shot with 4 cameras plus 2 audio only recorders and it is amazing with how well it syncs all those together. It has saved me many many hours as I used to line these types of files up manually.
    I have not used it too much for multiple TAKES of the same scene, but I’m thinking it will still work well with that because no take is ever perfectly the same. It analyzes all the audio, ambient noise, dialog, birds chirping and tries to find all of the matching files based on that audio ‘fingerprint’.

    I believe RedGiant offers a free trial – not sure how it is limited, if at all.

    Hi Justin,

    OK, so for your 2nd issue: Move the playhead (the timeline cursor) to somewhere other than the end of the event. Then do your zoom in. Should center the cursor.

    Now, for the first issue. When I first imported a file into an Untitled project, I could still click past the end of the event.
    It was a video file (MOV) but without sound.
    Then looking at your sample, I see that you had selected the audio file. So I imported an MP4 with audio and voila can’t go past the end of the last event (just like your example).
    So I tried a new project with just an WAV file – same: can’t go past the end of the WAV event.
    Tried a new project with just a PNG — you can click way past the end if it.
    So. maybe the sound files have something to do with it.
    But I can drag another file to the end of any of the last events (either append to an existing track or create new tracks) and the timeline expands.
    So I’m not sure it’s a problem.
    Guess I never noticed this behavior in the past.

    Regards,
    –Doug
