How do you count layers in Sony Vegas?

Post by Guest on 3rd July 2013, 8:24 am

Hi, so many editors are saying stuff like: I had over 180 layers, i had 67 layers (...)
So my question is: How do you count them? Is there something written how many layers are being used, or do you guys count every single layer by yourself? o.O

I usually count them myself, I don't think there is something that counts how many layers you hae but I could be wrong.

Well for Vegas, the tracks are numbered. So really all it takes to see how many layers you have is to scroll down! and omg 180 layers? EFF that.

oh wow, i didn't notice that all the time :O 
thank you very much! Yaa, i know... Me too, i'm using so many layers. For every clip i'm using one layer, then I'm grouping the effects, the text part etc. And then keep on going to the next part. This is the way i organize my stuff.

I dont understand 180 O.O Unless they work downward to keep thing from looking a certain way with fades. I have to do that sometimes cos it looks better when the fade in is underneath the fade out or vice versa, but I always try and work my way back into the middle layers so I think the most I've ever had was 20 and that was a masking project.

This is just THE Software I use. I usually make up to six video layers and a one audio.

Personally, for me it varies, for smaller videos its anywhere from 5 to 15 and then for larger projects its 20+ XD

Good Morning!
Erm true, but I always try to minimize the countof video layers just to make it easier for myself and the flow of production. Plus if you (I hope not) have a slow computer that spares many troubles, but also I want to see specific features of the interface of the software. Well, my preference at least.

I try to keep layers as minimal as possible!
When I'm happy with something I pre-render it and whack it in, then copy the clips for a certain mask or w.e over to another project just in case there are any alterations that need to be done that I've missed.

I don't use way too many layers. I actually get distracted after using more than 7.  shocked
My last video had 5 because I'm using them as much as I can.  drinking
