Good day, everyone.
This is a paid gig to develop a plugin for Sony Vegas that does one simple thing. Uses the audio from a an track to drive the opacity of a video track or video clip.
I'm looking for a visual effect / filter that I can apply to a graphical component which would allow me to use the amplitude of an audio track to drive the transparency / opacity parameter of a clip or video track. Currently I have to use After Effects with it's Audio to Keyframes feature to convert the amplitude and then use the data to drive the opacity to produce this effect. This process adds about 4 to 14 Hours of extra production time, as well as an extra 6 - 10 GB video file after render. I believe that both of these are unnecessary costs with just a bit of coding.
The ONLY alternative is Beat Reactor that is a part of Boris Effect Continuum which costs $928.38 CAD. And they insist that I can't License a single plugin and I need to buy / rent the whole damn package that includes a whole bunch of plugins I do not need and will never use.
Please DM me your offer and quote for the job.
The plugin features should include being able to select which audio track I want to use and which track channel (left or right) I want to set as the source of the signal. I also want to be able to set /adjust the sensitivity of the effect. Meaning being able to set the upper threshold threshold of how loud the audio track amplitude needs to get for the opacity to be at 100% visible. I would prefer a plugin the does it in real time as the video is being played back but I can work with a script too that converts the audio to envelope key-frames (only if there's no other way). The important part is being able to set the upper threshold / sensitivity.
