1-Click Commands

This is a collection of more than 40 one-of-a-kind scripts that provide a one-click solution for many common editing tasks, allowing more effective and efficient editing.

  • All Scripts Placing this command on the toolbar provides one-click access to all the tools, extensions and scripting plug-ins that are found in Vegas Pro. Clicking the button will open a menu that contains all available items. If you run scripts frequently, being able to access this feature will be extremely handy.
  • Auto Rotate Digital Photos When taking photos using a digital camera, the orientation of some images might not be correct. When adding these images to a project, you have to go through each image and manually rotate them. Many newer digital cameras have an orientation sensor. When taking a photo, the orientation information of the sensor is saved together with the image data (EXIF metadata). This command reads this information and automatically rotates the photos. Just select the desired images in the Project Media window and run the tool. If no images are selected, all photos will be analysed and processed.
  • Back up the Project This command immediately creates a backup copy of the current project. For more details see the Backups tool.
  • Bypass All Audio FX and Play This command bypasses all audio effects on tracks, buses and assignable effects and starts playback. Omitting effects allows quick comparison of your project with and without effects and conserves processing power (to avoid potential playback problems). Using this command gives the same result as if you were to manually check the Bypass All Audio FX option from Options menu, click Play and then uncheck the option after playback has finished.
  • Close Gaps (Selected Events) This command will delete all gaps between the selected events. The events will be placed together consecutively, creating a cut from one event to the next.
  • Close Gaps (Selected Tracks) This command will delete all gaps on the selected tracks. All events on those tracks will be placed together consecutively, creating a cut from one event to the next. To remove gaps across multiple tracks (blank spaces in the timeline) use Project Auditor
  • Collapse Loop Region Run the command to reset the loop region.
  • Create Bookmark This will create a new bookmark at the current cursor position and add it to the Bookmarks window.
  • Create Nested Project (from Selected Tracks) The command creates a new nested project based on all currently selected tracks. The selected tracks will be removed from the project and replaced by the nested project. This can be useful when working with large projects containing a large number of tracks.
  • Delete Inactive TakesTakes allow you to associate multiple media files with an event. The “Delete Inactive Takes” command will delete all inactive takes from the selected events. You can hold down the Ctrl key to remove all takes.
  • Fade from Cursor This command fades out the selected event(s) under the cursor, starting from the current cursor position through the end of the clip.
  • Fade to Cursor This command fades in the selected event(s) under the cursor, starting from the beginning of the clip to the current cursor position.
  • Full Screen This command maximizes the Vegas Pro window to a full screen view, providing more working space. Run the command again to return to a normal screen. Vegasaur saves the current state when closing the application and restores it on each running of Vegas Pro.
  • Goto The Goto command provides convenient navigation on your project. Place this command on the Vegas Pro toolbar for one-click access to all markers, command markers, regions, CD markers, CD regions, bookmarks, and active custom commands (which have an opened dockable window). Note: hold down the Ctrl key while selecting a marker or region to make the timeline selection.
  • Join Events (Unsplit) This command rejoins the selected adjacent events that have been previously split to multiple pieces. For the function to work, all selected events must be consecutive segments of the same media file. Several segments that are placed on different tracks and which refer to different media files can be selected and then unsplit in a single operation.
  • Match Event Length This command sets the length of a generated media or image sequence to match the length of the event.
  • Match Output Aspect This command crops the image so its size will completely fill the preview area. Use it to get rid of blank edges on the screen. This is very useful when all images mixed on a timeline come from different sources and have different aspect ratios. This function is a real timesaver when dealing with many events.
  • Match Source Aspect This command matches the image aspect to the original aspect ratio. This feature should be used when you want to apply full photos over other montages and when it is acceptable for the photo’s borders to be seen. This function is another timesaver when it comes to working with multiple events.
  • Original Size After a video is placed on a timeline, Vegas Pro automatically resizes the event so it will entirely fill the video preview area, matching its size to the project frame size. While this is expected behavior, sometimes it is not desired, especially when placing small pictures like logos or lower third graphics. In those situations, if you want to show a clip in its native size, use this command to resize such clips to their original size.
  • Pan/Crop: Copy This command allows you to copy Pan/Crop settings from a selected event to the Clipboard. Refer to the following command for additional details.
  • Pan/Crop: Paste This unique and smart command (as well as the previous one) applies the Pan/Crop settings that have been copied into the Clipboard (using the Pan/Crop: Copy command) to all selected events. It allows you to quickly duplicate the Pan/Crop settings of one clip to others, without affecting other settings. The real power of this function is that the target events can differ from source events in size, length and aspect ratio. Vegasaur will automatically fit all Pan/Crop settings to the new events! Using them together, these commands can save significant time for some editing scenarios.
  • Pan/Crop: Reset Deletes all Pan/Crop settings from all selected events, resetting them to their default values.
  • Quantize All Video Events This command forces all video events to snap to project frame boundaries, preventing a split from occurring in the middle of a frame. Edits that do not occur on frame boundaries can produce an undesirable visual result. For example, two events are split and moved together to create a cut; splits that are not at frame boundaries can produce a short dissolve in the rendered video.
  • Quantize Selected Events This command forces selected video events to snap to project frame boundaries.
  • Quick Select This command allows quick selection of events on a timeline, displaying all built-in and custom presets that are found in the Select Events tool. Hold down the Ctrl key (while selecting a preset) to keep current selection. In addition, it allows you to quickly select all events that share the same source media as the selected event (Select Same Media). For maximum convenience, place this command on the Vegas toolbar. For more detailed information, refer to the Select Events tool description.
  • Randomize Events This command randomly rearranges the order of all selected events on a timeline. This can be useful when creating slideshows. Also you can use this command to swap two selected events.
  • Remove Effects This command removes all existing effects from the selected events.
  • Remove Transitions This command removes all existing transitions from the selected events and return them back to a standard crossfade.
  • Renumber Markers This command renumbers all markers and regions in the project, so they will be in numerical order. The positions and labels are not modified – only the “number” for each will be reassigned. Hold down the Ctrl key to process markers and regions separately – first markers and then regions. Otherwise, each item will be renumbered sequentially, according to the item’s position on a timeline.
  • Replace Bad Frame (with Next) This command replaces a “bad” video frame under cursor with the next one (a “good” frame). A “bad” frame is a frame that has a noticeable problem, such as a dropout frame or something else. The target event must be selected before running the command.
  • Replace Bad Frame (with Previous) This command replaces a “bad” video frame under cursor with the previous one. See the previous command for additional information.
  • Restore Audio/Video This command allows the easy restoration of a missing audio or video part of all events that are selected. For example, the audio was accidentally or intentionally deleted and a decision was made later to restore it, select the matching video event and run the command. The corresponding audio portion of the media file that is contained in the video event will be restored and placed on a “Restored Audio” track. The video events are placed on a “Restored Video” track. Finally, this pair of events will be grouped together.
  • Sort Events Chronologically Rearranges all selected clips on a timeline in chronological order. This sorting is based on the recorded date and time of clips or photos. If recorded date/time is not available, the file creation date is taken into account. This tool can save you a tremendous amount of time when working with hundreds of clips on a timeline. For more sorting options use the Quick Properties tool (Placement tab).
  • Split Stereo to Mono Splits the selected stereo tracks on two mono tracks. The original track will become the left channel and a new (duplicated) track will become the right channel. This is useful when you want to treat the stereo audio as two mono channels and adjust them separately.
  • Sync Audio to Video This smart command will synchronize an audio event with a corresponding video event. This can be helpful, for example, in a situation when a video event was slipped (the contents of an event was shifted) or time-stretched without slipping or stretching the audio event. The duration, speed, take start, and position of the audio event will be matched to the video event. There are two methods for selecting events for synchronizing:
    • Select the one audio event and the one video event that need to be synchronized
    • Select any number of video events. The tool will automatically find the corresponding audio events. This is the recommended method. Please note that for a successful search audio and video events must be grouped together and refer to the same media file.
  • Take Snapshot Captures the project frame at the current cursor position and adds it to the Snapshots window.
  • Timeline Scale This command makes it possible to set the desired timeline scale with one click. Selecting a menu item will increase or decrease the horizontal zoom level. For maximum convenience, place this command on the Vegas toolbar.
  • Track Motion: Copy Copies track motion keyframes (all selected video tracks are processed) that are within a time selection to the Clipboard. If there is no time selection, all keyframes are copied. Click the Expand/Collapse Track Keyframes button in the track header to expand track keyframe rows (keyframes will be displayed in the timeline below your video track). Hold Ctrl to copy only parent motion keyframes. Hold Shift to ignore parent motion keyframes. This command lets you copy keyframes from one track/project to another one without any hassle.
  • Track Motion: Paste Inserts track motion keyframes that have been copied into the Clipboard to all selected video tracks. Place the cursor where you want to insert keyframes. Hold down the Ctrl key to insert only parent motion keyframes (or create parent motion keyframes from track motion keyfames). Hold Shift to insert only track motion keyframes (or create track motion keyframes from parent motion keyframes).
  • Track Motion: Reset Deletes track motion keyframes from all selected tracks. Create a time selection to remove only those keyframes that are within the selection. Hold Ctrl to delete only parent motion keyframes. Hold Shift to keep parent motion keyframes.
  • Unused Media This command enables the fastest way to find all unused media in a project. The Unused Media command will find all media in a project that is not currently being used, and then moves them to a special media bin with the name “Unused”. The command can be run again to update the bin after changes are made. This command is very helpful when working on large projects with many media files.
  • Vegasaur Placing this command on the Vegas Pro toolbar provides one-click access to all the tools, functions and commands that are found in Vegasaur. Clicking the button will open a menu, similar to the View-Extensions-Vegasaur menu. Yet another highly useful feature!
  • Windows Explorer Context Menu This command displays the Windows Explorer context menu that corresponds to the selected clip on a timeline. It allows you to open a clip in external applications, read its properties, explore a clip’s folder, and to perform other functions.

Text Generation Wizard

Text Generation Wizard is designed to create various titles, labels, countdown timers and so forth. For example, it can generate titles from regions or create open captions from closed captions.Quick Properties

Quick Properties is perfect for quickly changing the various properties of events or media files. Also it dramatically simplifies tasks such as sorting events on a timeline, creating transitions or converting cuts to overlaps.

Pan/Crop Assistant

Pan/Crop Assistant enhances the built-in pan/crop functions and brings a collection of tools that will make editing much easier, especially when dealing with many clips.

Render Assistant

Render Assistant provides a set of additional actions, launched after the end of rendering. For example, it can turn off the computer, play a melody or send an email.

Notable fixes/changes in Version 2.0 (2014-11-17)

  • Vegasaur 2.0 requires Vegas Pro 11 or newer. You can install this version side-by-side with version 1.x – Vegas Pro 8, 9, and 10 will continue to use Vegasaur 1.x, while the newer versions of Vegas will use the new Vegasaur.
  • Several features only work in 64-bit Windows, some of them also require a 64-bit Vegas Pro (see below)
  • Improved support for Vegas Pro 13
  • A lot of under-the-hood optimizations. For example, significantly improved support for Recorded Date/Time stamps (even if Vegas Pro does not support it for your camera). So now you can sync clips by date/time stamps in multicamera projects, sort events on the timeline etc.
  • Recorded Date/Time Subtitles: Save recording date information as subtitles. Import subtitles to DVD Architect, or “burn-in” them with Text Generation Wizard
  • Batch Media Import: Imports media files from a highly nested folder structure on your disk, including image sequences
  • Smart Trim: Experimental feature for trimming media files without re-encoding and rendering (works only in 64-bit Windows)

  • Effects module:
    • Tweener: Keyframe generator for smooth animated effects and motion path
    • Strobe Light: Helps you to create dynamic strobe light effects
    • Batch Stabilization: Stabilizes multiple clips with a single click
