HappyOtterScripts Free Tools

Over the past few years, I've been writing scripts for both myself and other forum members. I've slowly been adding them to the Happy Otter Scripts website at https://tools4vegas.com/. Here is the direct link to the Free Tools library. https://tools4vegas.com/library/ At the moment, it's kind of a dog's breakfast of stand-alone apps, script extensions and text scripts that I have written. Anyone visiting the site can freely download any of the tools. Some of the links to Sony versions are "dead" since they have not been recompiled for the previous versions. If you have a need for the Sony version, please contact me.

Comments, bug reports, and suggestions for new tools are always welcome. I'll update this thread when new tools are added.

Wayne, even I'm no longer starting projects in 13-453 or earlier...

... (unless it's a one-off or at someone else's request). I haven't taken it out of the system image in case I have to go back to an old project that has a plug-in tied to an earlier version. I'm sure there are some.

Just added a new script RegionsFromTransition to the HO Free Tools library. The script creates a region for each transition on the selected track. Here is the direct link. https://tools4vegas.com/regions-from-transitions/ The thread leading to the creation of this script and some demos of its use can be found here. https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/pre-render-effx-only--118678/#ca740990

All script extensions in the HOS Free Tools library have now been recompiled for Sony versions of Vegas. Both the Magix and Sony versions are now included in the same download file as well as a tool icon.

Just added a new tool Set Audio Crossfade that enables the user to easily add crossfade to audio events. Here's a shot of the UI and a short demo.

Just added a new tool, Save and Restore, that enables the user to "save" the cursor position when a project is closed and then "restore" the cursor to that position when the project is re-opened. There is an option to select the amount of "zoom" in terms of how many seconds will be displayed on the timeline. Here's a shot of the UI and a short demo in an 11 hour project I had used for audio testing.
