Is there a way to add notes to events or a project?
on May 11, 2015 at 2:05:40 am

I noticed on this page:

http://vasst.com/downloads.aspx

That there is a Notepad extension to download. Does this allow you to add notes to a project regarding events or clips?

I'm going through 35 hours of footage for a documentary. I'd like to simply add notes within Vegas to the clips that I'm viewing within the Trimmer Window.

I downloaded the Notepad extension, but it doesn't appear in Vegas. I am running Vegas 13. Is Notepad compatible with version 13? Or is there a better option for including notes regarding clips?

Thank you.

Notepad would be a good choice for your task at hand, but unfortunately it hasn't been updated for a while, so it wont work in Vegas 13.

Gary James FREE TimeLine Tools works in VP13

Also, have a look at the "Comment" Field in VP13. Add a Comment and you could even search on that and make a BIN - Good; Bad; Downright Ugly!

Hey Ron, Have you yet tried timeline tools if it has such a feature, as Graham mentioned?

My screengrab link (on CC) above showing Notepad is from Vegas Pro 13 build 310. Notepadinstaller was 1.2.0.exe.
See View > Extensions.
I wonder if the later updates broke it.

I tried installing Notepad, but it doesn't appear anywhere. Just to confirm, where do I go after installing it to start it in Vegas 13?

Thanks.

I checked under View > Extensions and it wasn't there. I also checked under Scripting. I'll have to re-install it and see. Is 1.2.0 the latest?

I'll uninstall, then reinstall.

Is the link I used in my original post the best place to download the Notepad installation file?

Ron,
I used the download file (v. 1.2.0) in that link with success today.
If this does not work for you, you may need to wait for JohnR to chime in.

When I do this, I just use Markers(M) and Regions(R) inside the trimmer. You can add notes to the regions/markers, then add more in comments, and view all in "edit details" window. You can also cut and paste the edit details into excel for more notes.

Comments are a column under the project media window, that you can move the column and resize it.

Markers and Regions are shown under the edit details window, by selecting the Markers or Regions display filter.

Tags might be useful as well, especially if you use Sub-clips. Sub-clips are a great organizational tool when cameras were kept rolling for long takes. You can tag up your clips by camera, content, star rating, whatever you want. Then you can search or filter by tags. When you create a tag, a Tag bin is automatically created to contain that tag.

When you use the search function in the media window, your search is create as a short cut under Smart Bins.

Multiple monitors, even that old 10 year door stop monitor, can be a real help cause you can dedicate a monitor for media info and spread out.

I've uninstalled and re-installed. Notepad still doesn't appear within Vegas 13.

Where should the installer be installing it?

Ron,
I find the Vasst extensions installed in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Sony\VegasPro\Application Extensions.
While waiting for JR to come along, you might read this thread and his posts there.

When I install, it's wanting to put the files in c:\program files(x86)\vasst\freeware.

Is that correct? Does it matter?

OK. I FINALLY go it!

I reinstalled, but could not get it in either Edit > Extensions or Tools > Extensions...BUT I noticed that it was in the Customize Menu, so I placed there, which I like better anyway!

Thanks for all your help.
