    Default Any Vegas plugins or templates that can automate production of Animoto-style videos?

    Hey everyone,

    I have a big client that wants 50 one minute "slide show" style videos. BUT, each video has to look different, and use different transitions, effects, text animations, etc.

    I could do each video manually in Vegas, but that would take a very long time. So I was wondering if anyone knew of any plug-ins that could at least somewhat automate getting Animoto-style videos from still images? Or maybe a big collection of random templates (.veg files) that already had various transitions and effects laid out on the timeline, so that all I'd have to do is drop my client's images and music bed into it, then be done with it.

    I could just use Animoto for this, but it is against their Terms to sell videos made by Animoto to my clients IF my clients are going to resell the videos to someone else (which is the case).

    So, any ideas on how to automate a project like this as much as possible using Vegas?

    BTW, I'm using Vegas Pro 7.0

    Thanks!

    The hard way - learn to use scripting.

    The easy way - look into the packages of scripts that are already available. Ultimate S from VASST and Excalibur from JetDV both have many automation tools which will help you greatly in this task.

    I believe both have free fully functional time limited trials.

    Also Sony's Production Assistant will also offer some of the items required.
