for Vegas® Pro
Free extensions for Vegas® Pro
The SeMW Extensions are a free collection of extensions for Vegas® Pro. These extensions are included:
- Preview levels for simulating the signal levels of the output device in the preview window,
- Render progress for more information on the render process and the option to pause a render operation,
- Split and heal with commands for splitting events on selected tracks and for healing events that have been split,
- Event streams with a command for restoring deleted events for audio and video streams, and
- Fixes with little tweaks for the Vegas® user interface.
The preview levels extension enables you to switch the video preview between an unaltered view and one with a limited value range (“Studio RGB”). To achieve this, it adds Sony Levels as a video output effect and switches its preset or disables it depending on your preview setting.
The render progress extension displays a status window with additional information during a render operation. It also has the option to pause a render operation and keep the partial output file when the render is canceled.
Split and heal
The split and heal extension offers commands for splitting events on selected tracks and for healing events that have been split.
The event streams extensions offers a command for restoring deleted events for audio and video streams. It checks whether the selected events are grouped with a video/audio event. If they are not, it restores the corresponding video/audio event. This command is meant for when you have added media with both video and audio streams to the timeline, ungrouped them, deleted either the video or the audio event, and later decide you need that event after all.
When the fixes extensions is active, you can enter 8 bit values – values from 0 to 255 – into OFX color value boxes by separating the individual components with a slash (/). Also, the fixes extension makes the Folder box in the Render As dialog editable so you can enter a path directly or paste one from the clipboard.
You can enable or disable individual extensions in the configuration window. You can also change the language setting for Vegas® Pro and the SeMW Extensions. Select the Tools/Extensions/SeMW Extensions menu item to open the configuration window.
