Sony Vegas Keyframes???
on Jun 24, 2015 at 4:36:07 am

Hi Guys!

I'm struggling to create a "typewriter effect". I've discovered a brilliant tutorial and way to create it:





I run into the problem of the keyframing. I understand how it works, I use it often- however I don't have the keyframe "position" bar when I open the media text generator. I only have it for the positioning of the text, which isn't helpful.

I appreciate any help! This is a huge problem that has stumped me. If you know anything I would love to hear from you, and learn :)

thank you so much guys!!

I don't understand? What do you mean? Is the sample what YOU are doing or what you've seen, and that's what you WANT?

Do you have the Sync Timeline checked?

Thank you for the help! I really appreciate it. And I'm sorry- I'll try to phrase it better for you:

I want to animate my text through keyframes. The tutorial above depicts keyframes being present in the text/media generator, which looks to be extremely helpful:

When I go to my Sony Vegas I only see this-

I noticed he clicks an "Animate" button. I have an "Animate" drop-down menu, however it doesn't give me freedom to keyframe or really customize anything.

Is there anyway to keyframe my text as I type, as seen in the tutorial? It would help me a lot. I'm running Sony Vegas Pro 12.

Any help is really appreciated! It goes a long way. Thank you again!

What is the Default Text pointed out in that Video? And what is that SONY Text Generated Media?

I've just done what you've asked in VP13, using SONY Legacy Text. No problems.

Joey your last Post was helpful. I've also just done it in Sony Title and Text. It works. I have KFs and I can add text at a KF, and it is animated.

Ah, do you mean you can't SEE any further Controls?

Legacy text changed it, and it worked!! Thank you so much.

I originally used the standard "titles & text", and didn't try legacy. It fixed it.

Thank you so much! That helps a ton. I'm going to make a note to use legacy text in the future for custom animations like these.

One more question- what is a KF? I'm sorry, I don't know.
Thank you again!

My Bad! KF = Key Frame.

You can ALSO use T&T it does work.

Thanks! I've been trying to create a "typewriter effect" and was stumped by this for a while.

I'm going to try this out- it will also help on a lot of other animations.

Thank you again!! I wouldn't have solved this otherwise
