I have 5 different video files on my timeline and I want to make every one of them to be only 5 seconds long. Basically squeeze each of them to be 5 seconds long each.

I am using Vegas 13, but before when I used premiere I had the option when I right clicked the video in the timeline called "Speed/duration". Is there something similar to this in Vegas?

  • Are these images or videos? Do you just want to trim or change speed as well? Are their current lengths different from each other?

  • @Mulvya these are videos, I just want to change the speed so the video will be a specific length and yes the lengths are different but they are mostly 6-8 seconds each.

  • So, if you want to keep the same in-point, press down Ctrl and trim from the out-point till you achieve desired duration,

  • @Mulvya The problem is, I'll have over 100 clips, and doing it by hand dosen't seem like a smart move.

  • Doing it this once won't take that long. If you have to do it regularly, then, yes, you need an automation control.

If you want to change the speed of multiple clips - find a script that does this. Vegas Pro supports scripting and there a lot of different scripts out there, both free and commercial. For example, this one (commercial) can do this (enter the desired duration to Duration control).
