Thread: Vegas 8 video preview window

  1. #1

    Default Vegas 8 video preview window

    I wanted to post an answer to a problem I had in the past that is a really simplistic easy fix, but many people with a lot of knowledge with Sony Vegas programs couldn't find the answer. I also noticed other posts over the internet with people having a similar problem > not being able to view your video clips in the preview window, but only able to view them after putting them on the timeline. After clicking lots of buttons one day, I stumbled upon why it didn't work for me and then noticed it was on youtube.

    So, if anyone can't preview their video clips from the moment you load your program, try this first. It might save you a lot of time researching complex reasons/answers when you needed to just change something small.

    Don't forget to press the the auto preview button in the clips bin for this to work
    This was to cater for those who preferred the two window preview monitors.

    I think this was an issue with 8c that many people didn't realise had been changed. I found the answer fairly quickly as I'd upgraded from the original 8, so easy to notice the differences. If you started with 8c though, it may involve a bit more head scratchin'. I don't really get the usefulness of this feature.
