Cheap alternative to Vegasaur?
on Feb 6, 2016 at 3:54:52 pm

I need Vegasaur just for one simple feature: "Split media markers into events".

The trial is about to end, and I'm unable to justify the price tag for a single feature. Is there an affordable alternative for Vegas that can do this?

Example:

You might try Timeline Tools. You can promote media markers and then split at markers. http://www.nfatoys.com/moasoftwarellc/ Its free.

You could buy VASST Marker Editor for only $9.95 USD. At VASST we understand that it's difficult to justify buying a large plug-in for just one or two functions so we took our flagship Ultimate S Pro plug-in and broke it up into a collection of smaller plug-ins called FasstApps that all retail for $9.95 each. You can buy only the functions you need and not pay for those that you don't



You would use the Split Events at Embedded Markers option to accomplish what you want.

Here is a short promo video on Marker Editor

In the interest of full disclosure, I'm the author of Marker Editor. ;-)

@Wayne Thank you, I just tested the program and it works flawlessly. And it comes with a toolbar icon :)

@John, I downloaded VASST Marker however there's no free trial to test it.

Edward, is there a way to make grouped tracks, split with the media regions?

For example, I have an audio track with embedded markers, and I want a video track above to also split at those markers? Any chance to do this?

It looks like Edward's script is operating on selected tracks so all you would have to so is select both tracks and they will both get split.

You are right John, however I still require to convert the embedded regions into markers to make this script work. Timeline Tools is able to do this on it's own and I'm very pleased.

Thank you all for your help!

Hi Ed,

Thanks for the script! I'm totally new to Vegas and accidentally deleted .sfl files line an idiot. Naturally DVD Architect can't open the chapter that I've created. Re-rending takes sooo long!

Can you kindly (or anyone else) please give me simplified step by step instruction installing the script, I'll be eternally thankful.

Thanks,

Pretty straightforward. Just copy the script and paste it into the Vegas Script Menu folder--something like "C:\Program Files\Sony\Vegas Pro 13.0\Script Menu". That's it. If Vegas is open when you do this, you will have to re-scan the script menu. Tools|Scripting|Rescan Script Menu Folder. If Vegas is closed when you add the script to the Script Menu Folder, just open Vegas and it will be there.
