Accessing Sound Forge Noise Reduction Plugin in Vegas

Hello Everyone:

I have just downloaded the trial of Sound Forge Pro 11, and cannot access it through Vegas Pro 12 as a plugin. I would like to work within Vegas if at all possible. Has this ever happen to anyone here?

Many thanks,

Debbie

Hi Steve:

I downloaded Sound Forge with the Noise Reduction plugin, but I am only able to work within Sound Forge, not Vegas. Is that how it's suppose to be? I don't mind since it has the drag and drop feature. I was just wondering. It saves me from having to accumulate files if I can work within Vega.

Many thanks,

Debbie

[Debbie King] "I downloaded Sound Forge with the Noise Reduction plugin, but I am only able to work within Sound Forge, not Vegas. Is that how it's suppose to be?"
No, you should be able to open just the Sony Noise Reduction plug-in in Vegas Pro as well. Perhaps it's a trial limitation?
[Debbie King] "I was just wondering. It saves me from having to accumulate files if I can work within Vega."
You should reconsider your workflow. Some people want to do everything in their NLE and then complain when their render is going to take 26 hours! I would process all audio that needs cleaning separately and place the cleaned up files into your project. I do the same thing for footage that needs to be stabilized. I stabilize it separately and place the clean video into my project. This way, the final render doesn't have to involve stabilization, noise reduction, and other "clean up" activities. I consider all of that preparing the media for editing and get it done before I start editing. Just something to consider.

BTW, you can open Sound Forge from within Vegas Pro and work on a file and Vegas will add it back to the timeline as a Take. Just right-click an audio event and select "Open in Audio Editor". You can set the audio editor under Options | Preferences | Audio then Browse for your Preferred Audio Editor and set it to the Sound Forge executable. This is how I usually work.

Thanks John:

When I opened Forge and created a plugin chain, I was able to see that chain in Vegas. Great tool.

I downloaded the trial of RX3 Advanced to clean up some audio I wasn't able to clean up in Forge, and RX3 won't allow saving work in their trial demos. Sweetwater sells the regular RX3 for $50 less. If I don't get my audio repaired, I may have to take the leap.

Many thanks,

Debbie

+1 on that.

John,

Slightly OT to this post, but when cleaning up your video do you render out and them drop the rendered video on a new timeline, or do you next the actual clean-up project? If you render, what do you render as (to prevent loss of quality) - the same as you ingested from the camera?

Thanks,

Stewart

[Stewart Bourke] "when cleaning up your video do you render out and them drop the rendered video on a new timeline, or do you next the actual clean-up project? "
I render a new file. Nesting would defeat the purpose of cutting down final render time since the nested project would still need to be rendered.
[Stewart Bourke] "If you render, what do you render as (to prevent loss of quality) - the same as you ingested from the camera?"
Yup, I use my camera's format. So when I'm shooting HDV I render to HDV. When I'm shooting AVCHD I render to AVCHD. If I'm shooting both I'll render to HDV because it's a faster render and easier playback.

Works in Vegas quite easily, but to make it easier, remember its
located in the Sony folder under Audio in the Plug-in Manager.

Thanks Steve:

Got it. I am still battling with some audio that needs repair. Forge is not able to get to the core of it. I may need to switch to RX3, but I need to play around with their trial to see if it does what I need it to do.

Many thanks,

Debbie

Glad you got it.
Trust me, RX3 can handle anything.
