    Default Basic Vegas 6 help

    Hey Guys

    I just got Sony Vegas 6 and have just started playing around.

    I have a really really basic problem.

    After i add on an effect/s I cant take them off! Is there an easy way of doing this

    Sorry for wasting your time.

    Thanks in advance

    Jake.

    Yup, just untick the effect in the window.

    Hey man thanks for the reply it now seems so obvious!

    One more question sorry.

    I have an effect and i want it to only affect a certain part of the video clip. I can do this by dragging a rectangle thing on the preview box.

    That doesnt seem like the best option as it is only rectangle and i cant manipulate it around what i want.

    Sorry if this makes no sense.

    Hey Jake... you're right... that doesn't make much sense at all!

    If you find the part of the clip you want to apply the effect to, then split the clip at the point you want the effect to start and end by pressing 'S'

    Then just apply the effect to that new short clip.

    It can be a steep learning curve, but keep asking, we're all here to help.

    Hah thanks man.

    Yes it all seems so confusing at the moment. All i can do so far is add basic effects and stuff.

    Oh well I'll get there!

    Thanks again.

    Jake.

    You can do most things in several ways, I would sometimes use keyframes to bring an effect in an out.

    The Event FX Menu includes the ability to do precisely what you want, without the need to split the Event.

    Each Event FX Menu includes a Mini Timeline, it is similar to the main Timeline, except it is just for THAT FX that you are working on. Using this Event FX Timeline you can easily tell the FX to start, stop, gradually increase you can even adjust how quickly to change from one FX to another OR how quickly an FX vanishes!

    This is done by applying a Key Frame diamond at that point in your video on this Mini Event FX Timeline. If you also click on the Sync Cursor you can also SCRUB this Mini Event FX Timeline and apply changes that will be reflected in Preview and see exactly how this looks in Preview AND it is FRAME accurate too. Very very simple indeed.

    Yes you CAN split the Event. But then you would have two pieces to the event; with the option to misplace one away from the other; put one part of the Event in front of the other; NOT be able to treat the Event's 2 parts as one - unless you Group them! And so on. So for me it is better to use the Event FX mini Timeline and adjust the effect of an FX OR even GROUPS of FXs using the Key Frame Diamonds.
