Saving titles for future projects

Remyx wrote on 12/28/2011, 3:15 PM

working on a current project, I created new titles with text over transparent background, covering the bottom portion of the screen, and fading away after few seconds. How can I save the title (including all formating, size and position, background color, fading), so I can re-use in future projects.

Is there a way to archive these titles or export them to an other computer running of VMS?

Thank you,

I would copy the title events to a new project and save them in a new .vf file. You can then take that .vf file to another computer and open them there, to copy them into another project.

Thank you for this. There is no way to save these titles in such a way that they are available for any new project? You always have to import them from an older project?

You can save a text event as a preset in the text generator window, but it won't necessarily save all the things you've set up, like backgrounds. There are a couple other problems too, which are that after you've saved a bunch you end up having to scroll through an ever longer and growing list of presets, and it's much harder to move them to a different PC.

Sorry but I might still need help on this one.

I have the title on the Text track as part of one project. It also show up as an object in the media bin.

But I can't seem to copy it over to an other project. Any tip for this?

Thank you,

You select and copy the events from your active project.
Then you open a second Vegas window and paste them on the timeline.
That's all.

You can have more than one copy of Vegas open at the same time .. each with it's own, seperate project.
