Use Copy Motion Track to PIP Script

klapkowscy.com wrote on 9/19/2019, 3:05 AM

I did everything like in the movie and a window pops up for me

Maybe it's the fault that I'm using version 17 and the movie version 16

I came across the same problem with the scripts in VP17.
There is a change in the determination of the x.Plugin.UniqueID.
If in the scripts "sonycreativsoftware" in "vegascreativsoftware" is changed, then it should work.

e.g.
x.PlugIn.UniqueID == "{Svfx:com.vegascreativesoftware:bzmasking}")

Desktop: Ryzen R7 2700, RAM 2 x Ballistix DIMM 16 GB DDR4-2666, X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming, Radeon R9 380 4GB, Win10

Laptop: T420, W7 SP1, i5-2520M 4GB, SSD, HD Graphics 3000

VEGAS Pro 14-17, Movie Studio 12 Platinum, Vegasaur, HitfilmPro

I do not know what's going on. This is already something for the programmer

Not complicated. Open the script with a text editor, and search for sonycreativsoftware and replace with vegascreativsoftware. Then save again as a script.

I changed and still the same

I just checked it again. In the "Copy Motion Track to PiP.cs" sonycreativesoftware is in two places to replace with vegascreativesoftware. Then it can be used in VP17.

    const string bzMaskingPlugin = "{Svfx:com.sonycreativesoftware:bzmasking}";

    const string pipPlugin = "{Svfx:com.sonycreativesoftware:pictureinpicture}";

    const string bzMaskingPlugin = "{Svfx:com.vegascreativesoftware:bzmasking}";

    const string pipPlugin = "{Svfx:com.vegascreativesoftware:pictureinpicture}";

Are you applying motion tracking with the bezier masking plugin to the video you want tracked first before you do the copy motion tracking data to pip script?

Systems:

Desktop

AMD Ryzen 7 1800x 8 core 16 thread at stock speed

for me it is changed in 2 places

This is a very early version of the script. The current and already adapted version can be found in Tools-> Extensions, not in the scripting section.

To jest bardzo wczesna wersja skryptu. Bieżącą i już dostosowaną wersję można wykonać w Narzędzia-> Rozszerzenia, a nie w sekcji zastosowania skryptów.

you can provide a new version of the script

In VP17, the script has become an extension.
Many more ways to use the motion tracking offers Vegasaur 3.9.

OK thank you very much works. It is a pity that this tracking works only in the x, y plane but as the object moves away the subtitles remain the same size
