A Question for John R. regarding his VASST apps
on Dec 27, 2012 at 9:23:36 pm

Hey John (or anyone well versed in the scripting/VAAST world),

Here is a work case for you - let's say I have about 3 hours of footage across 3 or 4 video files. I want to automate the process of cutting this footage into 20 minute chunks and adding the same 5 second intro to each chunk. I don't care about the IN or OUT points of the 20 minute chunks, they just need to be 20 minutes. Then, of course, render out the results.

Which FASST app or combination of apps would most easily automate this process? What would the workflow look like?

You could place all of the file on the timeline and use Marker Maker to create regions every 20 minutes and then use Render Assistant to render those regions out to separate files but that won't get the intros before each one.

You can batch render files adding intros with Vegas Pro Production Assistant so you could do this as a second step but that means your video gets rendered twice which may be undesirable.

That is what I was heading towards. If I use the same .mpg2 template for both renders, will the No Compression Render work as normal?

Yes, but you don't have to limit yourself to MPEG-2. When you render video to any of the following formats, unedited video frames are passed through without recompression (smart rendering):
  • DV AVI
  • DV MXF
  • IMX MXF (IMX 24p MXF is not supported for no-recompress rendering)
  • HD MXF
  • MPEG-2 (for files such as those from HDV and DVD camcorders)
  • XDCAM EX supports smart rendering across the following formats:
    • SP 18.3 Mbps CBR 1280x720p to/from XDCAM EX and HDV HD-1
    • SP 25 Mbps CBR 1440x1080i to/from XDCAM EX, XDCAM HD, and HDV HD-2
    • HQ 35 Mbps VBR 1440x1080 to/from XDCAM EX and XDCAM HD
    • HQ 35 Mbps VBR 1280x720p to/from XDCAM EX
    • HQ 35 Mbps VBR 1920x1080 to/from XDCAM EX
So I would use HD MXF or XDCAM EX.

I just checked out the video on Render Assistant and had to say having the longer training videos explaining the features are much better than the original short commercials for the FASST Apps.

I'm glad you like the longer training video. We are in the process of making one for each of the FASST Apps.
