Splitting events in Sony Vegas can be very helpful when editing. It allows you to break a single event into multiple sections that you can edit independently. Position the cursor where you want to split the event and hit the shortcut key “S” on your keyboard. This can also be done within the menu bar by going to Edit > Split. An alternative would be to hold Ctrl + Alt + Shift and click where you want to split the event. You can also hold Ctrl + Alt + Shift and drag over an event to split it at the point you click and trim it.
You can select a wide range of events easily in Sony Vegas, by using the Selection tool. Click and drag the mouse pointer at any corner of the area you want to select. Release the mouse button when the desired events are highlighted.
Rearranging plug-ins in Sony Vegas is simple. Just click and drag the plug-in button to place it in a new location. This works best when you need to group certain plug-ins together. For example, I moved the Levels plug-in next to the Color Curves plug-in for faster switching between the two when color grading.
Quickly duplicate keyframes in Sony Vegas by holding Ctrl while dragging an existing keyframe. Normally, you’d right-click and choose Copy or use the good ‘ol Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V commands.
