Is it possible to make my own visualizer without any plugins?

I recently made a track and was looking to make a visualizer in vegas pro 18.
I asked GPT-4 on how make one and it cant really come up with anything.

It tells me to:

1. import my audio and make a videotrack

2. add a gradient eclipse to my videotrack and give it video fx (color corection, chroma keyer and wave)

3. add audio fx (wave hammer surround)

But all i get is an blurred/waved red eclipse that doesnt move at all.

GPT-4 said I could in previous versions add source audio to the wave (not sure how) but that isnt there
Some other options he gives is to get borisFX or sonic foundry soft encode.

So I guess I slightly answered my own question here but is it possible to make an visualizer by my own in vegas or is it better to get an audio spectrum from the web?
And what are some good sites for safe plugin downloads?


Kind regards,

@MrPanthouse It costs a bit more than that but I was only asking for clarification, the image could be created but I don't know of anything in Vegas that make that image react to the beat of a sound track.

You need to ask Google, not a liebot.
