In last month's article, we discussed the first 10 of 20 techniques you can use to better organize your workspace. This time, we'll take a look at ten more techniques that I use to organize my workspace. Once again, many of these techniques work the same way in our other software applications, so while I'll be using Vegas Pro software for my examples, you can try them in your software to see if they work similarly there.
Technique Eleven: Adjust track height
There are several methods you can use to adjust the height of tracks either individually or all together. This can be very helpful when you need to take a closer look at the track you're focused on or want to set aside other tracks in a minimized state when you don't need them.
To change track height, you can:
- Click the track's Maximize Track Height and Minimize Track Height buttons
- Drag the bottom edge of the track header up or down
- Press the Tilde key on your keyboard to minimize all track heights and press it again to expand the tracks again, or
- Click a track's header, hold Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down Arrow to change all track heights simultaneously until all heights match
Technique Twelve: Expand track layers
When you use more than one event on a single track, Vegas Pro gives you the ability to view the track in a couple of different ways. By default, all of the events sit sequentially on a single layer of the track one after the other. Crossfades and transitions are represented by an overlapping of two events. read more...
