Slideshow length in Vegas Studio 13 platinum
on Apr 3, 2014 at 5:42:36 am

Hello:

I'm new to this forum, and will appreciate any help.

I used to be able to adjust the slideshow to the music length, in Vegas Studio 11, by selecting the entire slideshow, create a group, and then by holding the control button, drag the end of the selection to the length where the music ended.

I can't seem to be able to this in my new Vegas Studio 13.

I tried the "Insert Slideshow" feature, but it's not user-friendly.

Please help.

Thanks.

You can still do the same in Movie Studio Platinum 13.
They just made "timeline editing more efficient" by making it more complicated in some instances. Some of the editing tools are now only in the Edit>Editing Tool menu and not in the new toolbar below the timeline. You can use the shortcuts D and Shift+D to switch to the next/previous Editing Tool.
Read also the section on Editing Tool in online Help (F1).

Hello again:

I'm afraid my question was not exactly answered.

Can you please elaborate? I do not think pressing "D" or "Shift+D"
is the whole story.

I'm still not familiar with every nuance of the software.

A further help will be very much appreciated:-)

Thanks.

Is it possible that you are using only the Simple Edit Mode?
Go to the Advanced Edit Mode and all is well.
See Main Toolbar.

This does not bode well for VP13 - please don't let them have messed about with the main GUI structure...

Sony did a webinar earlier this year that may help you.

Mr Kujbida, thanks for the webinar link, but my answer was not there.

Mr Nippala, I was in advanced mode, but unfortunately all is still not well.

Gentlemen, I'm resigned to install platinum 11 alongside the platinum 13, until I get the answer i'm looking for.

If my very first post is not clear please let me know.

Your efforts to help me is greatly appreciated:-)

Simon

Simon, your first post was clear enough. That workflow (not using the Selection edit tool) gives similar stretching/compression for me in VMSP 11 and MSP 13.
Are you sure you're using the Normal edit tool to Ctrl+drag?
Do you see "Time Stretch" when you hold down the control button at the end of the selection?

Mr. Nippalla (may I call you Jorma?)

Yes to both questions, however, when I do "ctrl+drag" it does not allow me to drag the grouped selection.

Interestingly, when I do "ctrl+alt+drag", it only allows me to stretch the end-slide of the group. If this helps any.

Thank you for your prompt responses, and your patience.

Simon

If you did create a group, I cannot figure out what exactly you are doing differently. Pls see if this screen recording of my way might show different settings.

Does ctrl&drag do anything in this MS 13 project? And yes, ctrl+alt+drag is supposed to "trim adjacent", i.e. "to trim selected event and adjacent event simultaneously".
Have you tried to create new projects to see if you have the same problem?
(And please do, Simon):)

Hi Jorma:

SUCCESS!!

Lesson learned: I clicked the "Config" button and unchecked everything
except, the "Enable snapping" button. Thanks to your video!

All is indeed well. I also tried it on my laptop's VS 13 and it worked as well.

Thanks a million! You have been a tremendous help!

Simon

Simon, it seems you probably had "Ignore Event Grouping" selected then and that was the problem.
Excellent that all is well for now :)

Hi Jorma:

You are absolutely right. I checked all of the buttons in "config"
except, "Ignore Event Grouping" and it worked again.

Thanks again.

Simon
