Using Action Essentials without Adobe After Effects
on May 3, 2014 at 7:50:33 pm

Hello Everyone:

I am about to add visual effects to my film using Action Essentials. On the demo that I saw, they used Abobe After Effects. A few months ago, I downloaded a trial version, but had not completed my film edits. Now my trial version expired, but I still have my Action Essentials. Can I use Action Essentials directly on Sony Vegas 12? If so, how can I keyframe the effects? Please advise.

Good to be back.

Best,

Debbie

Yes, you can easily use Action Essentials in Vegas pretty much
as how you use it in After Effects (After changing their alpha
channels to Premultiplied
).

Hi Steve:

Thank you for responding. I'm not sure that I understand. Changing their setting to Premultiplied? Changing the settings in Vegas to Premultiplied? In After Effects, I saw the demo where they drop and position the effect clip onto the video, and it was automatically keyframed. I don't see where I can do this in Sony. I found premultiply in the Preference menu, but am unsure as to how to work it.

In after effects the alpha channel is automatically generated,
but in Vegas you need to change the alpha channel of each clip
to Premultiplied, so that the transparent background can be revealed,
then you drop it on the timeline on a track above your video.

There is nothing to be confused about over this, its all basic stuff.

Hi Steve:

Thank you for your feedback. I was able to download a free trial of Adobe After Effects, for the Prekeying feature that it has, where I can drop the clip directly onto a specific area in a frame. I tried with Sony and I am still all thumbs when it comes to positioning. I'm still working on it.

Many thanks,

Debbie
