Thread: Key Commands for Imprt audio and render?

  1. #1

    Default Key Commands for Imprt audio and render?

    Hi - I see how to change keyboard shortcuts (key commands), but cant for the life of me figure out how to assign keys to render and import media.

    Is this posible to do?

    Thank you in advance.

    At what point do you mean "import"?

    1] Capturing the initial audio into the PC?

    2] Importing to the Project Media window in Vegas?

    3] Moving Audio from the Project Media Pane and placing the Audio Media on the Timeline as an Event?

    4] Recording Audio directly to the Timeline, from some source?

    5] Importing CD Audio?

    6] Via firewire through the Video Capture facility?

    Which of these? Or is it something else entirely?

    Sorry, thought what I wrote was clear.

    "assign keys to (1) render and (2) import media"

    (1) File > Render As

    (2) File > Import Media

    Those are the exact descriptions of the functions that I currently use the mouse for, that I would instead like to use the keyboard for, by assigning keyboard shortcuts to those functions.

    Cheers.

    They are NOT readily available. You are going to have to construct your own. I have just successfully constructed and tested both of these procedures that I made.

    You will need to call up the Customize Keyboard:-

    Toolbar | Options | "Customize Keyboard" . . .

    In this menu you can construct your own KB instructions.

    However, and this IS why I asked, I wanted to ascertain just what it was you were attempting to do through your work-flow. The reason for doing this was to possibly assist you with another way.

    If it is purely to render files to another format, from within Vegas, then I can highly recommend Ultimate SPro4 from VASST to do this. This is an Extension Script Based utility that is stuffed full of tools. Presently I am batch rendering, and converting and renaming MPEG4 files into PALDV WS files - marvellous! Here's the link: VASST - Ultimate S Pro 4.1

    So, yes you CAN have KB commands - you have to construct your own. However, and depending on what you really are attempting to do, then a batch render-er from within Vegas may just have the edge - and save those fingers and you don't need to babysit it either!

    Your call. . . . .

    Thanks again for the help.

    "In this menu you can construct your own KB instructions."

    I am at the panel, but how do you construct? I actually did a search for the term "construct" in the help, but it yielded no results.

    This is what I tried:

    Opened Cust. kbd panel
    In the "Show Commands Containing", I typed 'file'; this gives me a list of all of the commands in the file menu, of which 'render as' is one
    Selected 'render as'
    In the 'shorcut keys', typed 'ctrl+1', then clicked add. I now see ctrl+1 in the right pane
    I thought this would allow me to press ctrl+1 and that that would bring up the 'render as' dialogue box, but it doesn't work.

    Any ideas on what I am missing?

    Thanks again!
