I have been using Sony Vegas Movie Studio 9.0 for some time now, well over a year, and the layout I have it as is something I don't like. I have the video previewer as a separate tab (which unfortunately clips a couple of centimeters around the border) and there was a sound adjuster that's gone too.
When I first opened up VS 9.0 for the first time, I had the timeline and video preview screen all at hand without having to locate it elsewhere. I accidentally clicked the 'x' from where the preview screen was and now I've tried everything, but I cannot get it back to where it was, it is on another separate tab instead
Is there any way of setting it to some sort of 'factory setting' so it is reset to how it was?
Another question I have is how can I increase sound smoothly? I can't think if there is a collective name for this but say I have the volume in the timeline on VS9.0 as -3.0dB, and I wanted to later increase it back to full volume, how can I do that? I have tried splitting the sound file in the line, keeping one side as -3.0dB, then increasing the volume on the other half using the fade in effect for around 00:00:00:10 of a second, but still it isn't really good, as from -3.0dB it dips down obviously to 'mute' rising back to full volume. and at such a fast speed, it sounds trash.
Is there a way of 'stepping up' so to speak so I don't have to use the fade-in?
The effect I want is the same way you see on programs where there is music in the background as someone is talking, once the person stops, the music rises back to full volume...you get what I mean?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
