I have given up on knowing everything vegas can do. But the users here many of which I also run into on the creative cow board seem to teach me something I didn't know every week. But this one I did know as color curves is my preferred plugin for bright/contrast/color grading. But I've only used vegas for 15 years, you need to get good widetrack.
In ANY Control with KFs. Add 6 KFs. Rt-Mse+Drag across them so that they're selected. Hold down the ALT and Drag that last KF! They'll start to separate themselves proportionately across the Timeline. Value? You've setup a 5 sec Event but now you want to double (or anything) its length, you now have ALL the KFs clubbed together at one end . . . but now this ALT Drag will spread them. 😎
I bet I'm the only one here who's been using Vegas for over 25 years and just today figured out that you can add edit points onto the Color Curve line, just like on any other envelope in the software.
Makes me wonder what else there is.
Maybe there's one that gets me unicorn rib steaks for dinner.
You are not alone .. I have been using Vegas since its first version and I always learn new things about it from time to time which make me feel like I know very little about it 😂
BTW, Vegas is not 25 years old .. Vegas (Audio Only) is 20 years old, and Vegas (after adding Video) is 19 years old .. but I know, it feels longer than that!
Yes, the years do mush together annoyingly. Sorry for the bad math, but, the original vegas was indeed a revelation to me. If I can trust my memory (an already disproven proposition) I was co-writing a book with David Rubin, to be called The Audible PC, intended to report on all the cool audio stuff you could do with the new, NON-MS-DOS Operating System coming out from Redmond. We were talking to a slew of ambitious, and occasionally talented, guys developing new software for "The Multimedia PC!!!" -- the marketing slogan du jour.
I found Sonic Foundry and their new Sound Forge software, and quickly realized that Monty Schmidt and Curt Palmer were for real. (It also turned out their office was kitty corner across the street from the house I'd lived in in Madison Wisc.) Been hooked ever since.
