good morning to all,


i am looking for a controller for my sony vegas pro 8 for some smooth fade ins/out and i ask please to know if the novation launch controller can do the job

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Novation-Controller-Encoders-Launchpads-LaunchPad/d...

the bigger novation controller is for ableton live but i don't know if it can be used with sony vegas as well

many thanks in advance

Why are you not using the built-in fades in Vegas? If you hover over either end of your media event (clip), towards the top, you should see a pop-up message, "Fade offset 00:00:00:00". If you grab the little blue triangle at the top (front or back) edge of the event, you can pull the fade out to whatever time you want.



If you right-click on the new fade area you create, you have choices of the "type" of fade that is employed.

hi dear andrew and i thank you so much for the reply

i have tried to edit fade in/out (7.15 seconds) but with the mouse is not as precise as with a controller (fader)

I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to accomplish, but if you zoom in on your timeline, you can adjust the length of fade in/out to the exact number of seconds/frames you want. Not saying it's wrong, but 7.15 is a LOOOOOOONG fade in or out. If you could describe a little more what you're trying to get as the end result, perhaps I (or someone else) could give you more direction.

hi dear andrew and i thank you so much for your interest

i am not trying to accomplish anything special

i am trying to create some slideshows and i need a smooth fade ins/out but it is tricky with mouse to have that precise time of lets say seven or less seconds

i have tried to create some very smooth fade ins/out with my mouse but i think a hardware device or better saying a controller will do the job perfectly

i am not sure if i can upload a sample of my job on the forum jut to see what i am doing
(my own music with some photos)

thanks

Kathreen,

Forgive me, but I'm not clear at what level of understanding you are with Vegas. Your statement that you, "have tried to create some very smooth fade ins/out with my mouse" leads me to believe you are not aware that you can zoom in and out on the timeline. In the screen shot below, I have added a picture of duration of 5.00 seconds to Track 1 of the timeline. Notice how it only takes up a small portion of the viewable timeline.



In the picture below, I have grabbed the right end of the timeline zoom bar and moved it to the left to effectively zoom in on the event added to Track 1. Notice that the timeline scale has increased (and the event takes up more of the viewable timeline), but the event is still only 5.00 seconds long.



Then depending how you are doing your fadeout/fade in's:
1) You can have your individual pic/vid events placed end to end (with NO overlap) and add fade in's and out's to the ends of each event. This will have the effect of each picture fading in from black, showing the event, then fading to black before the next event then fades in from black, views and fades out. See how this is done on the timeline picture below. This is DIFFERENT from the last screen shot, where
2) the pic/vid events are actually OVERLAPPED on each other, which will cause the first pic/vid to fade directly to the second pic/vid (with no intermittent fade to black). Either is OK (I've use both methods), but the overall presentation to the viewer is a little different. Hope this helps.

I viewed your slideshow... looks like you have figured it out fine. You can add a little more "zip" by using the Pan/Crop tool for each pic/clip and slowly pan across or zoom in or out on the pictures. This just helps the show to seem more cinematic than "just" a slideshow.

hi dear brad and i thank you for your kind reply

yes, i know presonus brand

it seems that presonus offer very good sound quality at affordable prices !


i think m-audio fastrack c600 is a better choice for me because it is an audio interface and controller and the price is very cheap at euros 150

many thanks again to all for the replies
