I have some more audio editing improvements I would like to add in addition to those I posted above. Links for reference. Post 1 Post 2

- Open Multiple VSTs at a time: Many DAWs have the ability to open up multiple VST effects windows at a time in order to monitor what is going on. This would be very useful in my opinion.

- Incorporate the new CLAP audio plugin standard: A new audio plugin standard has been released by u-he and is completely open source and provides multiple functionality and performance improvements. Did I mention it is open source? Info Link ->Github link at the bottom of the linked page ;)

- Be able to use different input and output drivers at the same time: I recently got a Universal Audio Apollo and without a doubt it makes things more complicated, but fun :) That being said, it would make things soooo much easier if I were able to have the recording audio driver be the one provided by UAD, but have the playback audio driver be my standard windows playback device. It just plays back so much better than through the UAD with the latency on the windows device. Yes there are work arounds, but being able to make one setting and leave it and forget it would make things so much easier.

- Mute Input busses during playback (unless recording is armed): I have a simple High Pass filter on my input bus that I channel all of my recording through. I've noticed that when I playback my video after recording, I am still seeing levels come through the input bus. I'd assume that the vst effect(s) are still processing that input as well which just eats up processing power. During playback, I cannot think of a reason the input busses need to be active with effects active on them unless you are recording at the same time. True you can manually mute them, but I think this should be automatic. Maybe there is a way to do this already, but I have not figured it out yet.

- More VST directory Folders: Can there be more than just 3 VST folder directories in preferences?

- Default Audio Recorded files Location: Can the "Recorded Files Folder" default to the project location so that all audio files I record go to the project's folder? I need to manually adjust this setting every time I start a new project. At least add a "Project Location" button.

Hello everybody,
it would be an absolute gamechanger for me if it would be possible to use the slip tool with the keyboard (without having to physically move the mouse back and forth on the desk) - i.e. to be able to move the video material within an event with a fixed beginning and end. Not only for people working on a laptop, but also for those who want to use a hardware controller. In the best case with different speed variations similar to JKL. Would that be possible?

Vegas Black Bar Fill VFX.

This FX is excellent, but a control I would really like to see added is the ability to lower the opacity of the background especially for images where the foreground is bright - the background can be a bit overpowering and distracts from the foreground.

@Dexcon, lower the opacity (so the lower tracks show through)? Or be able to control the brightness/gamma?

@jetdv  ... An excellent alternative.

@jetdv I think he means simply a brightness control for the background like this in the BCC version

@Gid, I understood that. But Opacity won't do that.

Dexcon wrote on 8/7/2022, 7:58 AM

Just for clarity, I suggested opacity only because the method I've used in the past (pre-Black Bar Fill) is to Ctrl-drag down the video event to a lower track to create the background, use pan/crop to expand it to 16:9, add a gaussian blur, and then adjust the opacity to suit. It worked just fine and exactly as I wanted. If an additional control could be added to Black Bar Fill to achieve the same result - by whatever means - would be greatly appreciated.

@jetdv Yep i understood, it only works when duplicating as @Dexcon mentioned above, but were talking about Black Bar Fill not recreating the effect, comments become crossed wires that's all 👍
