Thread: Effects filter help!! Sony Vegas Pro 8

  1. Default Effects filter help!! Sony Vegas Pro 8

    Hi there,

    I'm in desperate need of some help! The last time I was working on my project everything was fine but now for some reason my effects filter add ons just aren't showing up on the timeline!

    I've even started new projects, imported a clip and added, for example, chroma keyer plug in, but for some reason it just isn't working and nothing is showing up in the preview window. I even tried simply adding a border to my clip and this too doesn't show up!!

    I'm at a real loss as to why this anomaly has suddenly started for no apparent reason and without me (consciously) changing any settings Can anyone suggest why this is happening and what I can do to get rid of it?

    For information, the last thing I did on my timeline was add cookie cutter filter (just experimenting) so don't know whether this is relevant and has imported some wierd setting or other??

    Thank very much in advance for any ight you can shed!!

    cant help directly but I think there is another thread going where the person has a similar problem - will link to it if I find it.

    I am unable to reproduce the effect on my vegas.

    Chances are you have "By-passed" the Fx results in Preview - good if you need too!

    1] Preview Toolbar

    2] 4 th Icon along "Fx Bypassed" Icon is either ENGAGED and you;ve got "Select ALL" selected or you have this DISENGAGED and Select All selected. Click on the Icon and you SHOULD get the effect back

    Done!

    Just to let you know I solved the problem last night but it wasn't the bypass fx button that needed checking - I'd earlier pressed the split screen button next to the preview on external monitor one without realising what this did to the entire project. All I had to do was uncheck it - doh!

    Found the solution using Vegas's own help button so thumbs up to that I guess.

    Hopefully, this will help anyone else who may have experienced the same problem?

    Cheers

    Well, it is. Split Screen "Left/Right" is a Fx bypass - of either left or right.

    Sure, this is a combo Button. It also allows us to bring IN what is on the clipboard for comparison as well. If you DON'T have Fx bypass selected you will be accessing what is on the Clipboard instead.

    Another "tip" is that you can "drag" across the Preview and make your own selection - you are not restricted to just Left or Right selection - very useful!
