I'm looking for advice on how to perform a task.
I would like to be able to scan through the video source (or audio) and mark on the timeline when certain events occur.
I'm mostly editing video game footage, which will have repetitive and predictable events (such as a kill or point notification), whereby an image (such as some text, or an icon) will appear on screen to indicate an event of interest. I would like to be able to provide Vegas Pro with an image (or audio clip) and have it scan through my source media and mark on the timeline when the image (or audio) events are detected in the source media.
Is this possible? If not, does anyone know where I could start looking for an alternative? Being able to perform this function would save me hours upon hours of tedious manual marking work, and would be an insanely useful feature for me to have. I was considering trying to write my own script that uses ffmpeg and an image detection algorithm to perform this function, but it's quite a bit of work and I figured that Vegas might have a way to do what I'm looking for.
