Select all your events. While selected, go to the transitions tab, select your transition and pull it down onto the overlap between two of the events. The transition will be applied to each selected overlap.

HI

 

Thanks for the prompt reply.

I have 30 JPEGs in a sequence, the all have a 1sec fade time in and out, but I want to change the fade type to all of them in 1 go, There is no cross fades.

Is it possible to copy the fade type of 1 even to multiple events?

 

Many thanks

Gary

When you say 'Fade type' do you mean that you want to change these

or is it the transition type that you want to change?

sorry I didn't read the test below the pic

@garygiles63 Sorry, I don't know of any way to do that. Let's see if anyone else as any ideas.

Meanwhile, I'll have a play and see if I can come up with something.

No worries, thanks for trying.

JetDV and others wrote scripts to do this and other magic things. Search the Scripting section here on the forum.

Here is an example of one that I use often:

/**
 * This script will add a one second Fade In and out to all selected events.
 *
 * Written By: Edward Troxel
 * Copyright 2016 - JETDV Scripts
 * Modified: 08-26-2016
 * Converted to .CS and new Vegas namespace
 *
 * 10-18-2018 - Version to fade out only by 500ms by Nick Hope
 *
 **/

using System;
using ScriptPortal.Vegas;public class EntryPoint

{
  Vegas myVegas;

  public void FromVegas(Vegas vegas)
  {
    myVegas = vegas;
    foreach (Track track in myVegas.Project.Tracks)
    {
        foreach (TrackEvent trackEvent in track.Events)
        {
            if (trackEvent.Selected)
            {
                trackEvent.FadeIn.Length = new Timecode(500);
                trackEvent.FadeOut.Length = new Timecode(500);  
            }
        }
    }
  }
}

@garygiles63 There's an easy way of doing this but it requires you to remove all your images from the timeline temporarily. After you've done that, go to Options/Preferences/External Control & Automation. Go down to the option 'New video event opacity' and change the fade type with the drop-down. Click Apply.

When you've done that, bring all your jpgs back onto the timeline, select them all, then, while they're selected, drag a fade at both ends on one of them. All the other jpgs will follow automatically. The fades will then be of the type you selected in Preferences.

Don't forget to change it back again afterwards, if you want to, that is.

Thanks Jack, that would be a pain right now as there all timed lengths. Will look at that for future projects.

You can modify the above script to change the curve time like this:

newEvent.FadeIn.Curve = CurveType.Slow;

There are several different options you'll see when you type "CurveType." This will also be discussed in my tutorials on July 26th.

@garygiles63, all tutorials are listed on my website at http://www.jetdv.com and they are all also listed on my YouTube page.

@jetdv Just subscribed to your channel. Watched your tut on creating an icon for a script. Clear and concise, no bells and whistles, just exactly how to achieve the result. Thanks.
