I'm pretty new to the board, but I'm stuck with some major issue.
Ive been editing video's (mainly gaming vids) for a pretty long time now & got accustomed to Sony Vegas 7.0 really well.
Anyhow, thanks to university, I was able to get Sony Vegas for a really cheap price, so I decided to buy the 9.0 pro version through my uni.
My main issue ever since I upgraded is that I cannot seem to speed up fragments easily anymore.
In vegas 7.0 I used to simply put in 2 splits, turn up playback rate as much as needed & then a small chip in would appear where the fragment would catch up to the end of the split again (sorry for the bad formulation, but I'm not really familiar with how to properly say this stuff in english).
So all I had to do is drag back the end of the clip & it would autostop at the chip in. After that I just dragged the part from after the split back to the end of the newly speeded up fragment.
Like this I could easily flush through boring parts in the gaming vids I made.
Anyhow, since I got Vegas 9.0 pro, I messed around a bit to see how the new version compares to the old & started editing a first serious video last week.
I pretty much finished all the editing, all I have to do to round it up was speeding through the boring parts & it'd be ready to publish.
To my big disappointement, the technique I used back in 7.0 doesn't seem to be availible anymore in the 9.0 pro version.
Whenever I apply this method, the "chip in" in the timeline doesn't appear anymore in 9.0 pro, making it impossible to properly stick the 2 parts after splitting & speeding up together again.
I can only try to estimate it, which gives terrible results & is way more work, than simply autofitting it to the small chipin that appeard in the timeline.
Anyhow, Ive googled about all I could, experimented for hours myself & can't find anything.
Perhaps I'm completly missing a new & easier way to speed up fragments that was included in the newer version (which I really hope I am), but I'd really appreciate some help here. If I can't manage to sort this out properly, my upgrade from 7.0 was basicly useless, since if I can't speed up fragments, I pretty much can't make any movies :(.
Really hope to get some help here, you are my last hope >.<
Thanks in advance for any replies!
