Create Vegas Pro 13 Plugin/Extension
on Sep 12, 2016 at 3:07:45 pm

I've recently learned the basics of FFmpeg for trimming down a large file to a smaller file containing certain footage copied from the original file.

I've seen there are plugins/extensions available for FFmpeg in Vegas Pro 13, but they include many options and settings which I don't need (and probably don't understand).

The line I've been using is:
ffmpeg -ss [START TIME] -i [INPUT].mp4 -map 0 -c copy -t [DURATION] [OUTPUT].mp4

I imagine that all I'd need is:
1) GET selected range in Vegas
2) Take start and end time from that selected range
3) calculate duration based on end-start
4) video being selected in range set as [INPUT] file
5) user input for [OUTPUT] file
6) Run that line through a CMD window.

It really wouldn't take long at all and could be done with a simple batch file, but I would like to be able to do it from within Vegas; I just can't find much useful information on creating a plugin/extension nor getting Vegas related syntax.
i.e.: startTime = timeline.selection.start

Could anyone point me in the right direction for learning code for Vegas?

Thanks for your time.

-Tom

You would need access to the Script Development SDK which is no longer downloadable that I can see. I tried to download it from the Sony site but it redirects me to the main page of MAGIX site with no downloadable link in sight. :(

Maybe someone here has an old bookmark that still works. I do not.

You might try to google "vegas + download development kits".
You should get a cached version of Downloads still.

Another option there

(Used to be nice to be able to edit posts here.)

Hey Jorma, thanks for that!

Googling for "vegas pro 13 + download development kits" doesn't yield anything I appear to be able to use.

http://download.sonymediasoftware.com/dev/ looks like I should be able to use it, but I don't entirely understand it.
The second from last option "vegasscriptsdk.zip" looks like the correct choice for me, but would you be able to say if there's a better option, based on what I'm trying to do?

Thank you!

-Tom

My cached Downloads page gives these explanations
Video Plug-In Development Kit (OFX) updated on Apr. 3, 2013 (409 MB)
Vegas Pro Script Developers Kit - Versions 10-13 updated on Dec. 22, 2010 (135 MB)

JR or others will probably advise further.

That's the one you need. The Script SDK.

Thanks for that. Any place I can check out the proper Vegas related syntax?

It's all in the ZIP file. What it contains is API documentation.
