Is there an editable script for sequence image clips?


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to save, edit and load a script for a sequence setting clip name, start, stop, effects, etc?

I see how to do with subtitles, and was able to use excel to create a script that loaded 90 subs into exact position (loved it, no typing).  I'd like to do the same with image clips since art director keeps changing which and where some 40 clips will go.

OK, I guess I'll answer my own question.  The VideoPad Project (.vpj) file is essentially a script, editable in a text editor.  It just isn't formatted to make it easy to use as a script lacking field identifiers and with the entire project including clips, effects, audio, subtitles all in one file.  The vpj file has a checksum value included in the file as a text element at the very end.  If you edit the file, obviously the checksum will fail when opening in VideoPad and VideoPad will notify you that the file may be corrupt and give you the option to proceed anyway, which you can do with no harm. 

All-in-all, not easy to write a script builder with this file structure.  And, like they say in all the instructional videos, don't play around with your only copy of the file!

And of course. Save Project File AS routinely, giving it a unique # or name, so as not to overwrite prior saves.  Using Save Project Files (no AS) will overwrite.  Then clicking the VPJ will restore a project to the state it was in when saved.😄.
