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.

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 šŸ˜‚

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!

Here's a real doozie:

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. šŸ˜Ž

That works. Doesn't seem to have to be 6 though. This might be the most obscure thing yet.

Correct. This was only meant as an example šŸ˜‰.

Another one, for example, is to use Ctrl, instead of ALT and what this does is COPY all those KFs šŸ˜€.

My favoriteĀ trick is Malowz Invert, Levels, Levels, InvertĀ . You have to think upside down, though.

I stand corrected. Didn't seem possible, but if wikipedia says it's true . . . .
