If Sony Vegas Pro 13 is detected during installation, HitFilm will automatically install a plug-in enabling Vegas to render HitFilm projects live on the Vegas timeline.
If Sony Vegas Pro 13 is installed after HitFilm, the plug-in will not be installed correctly. Both products should be reinstalled, with Vegas installed first.
Importing HitFilm project files
HitFilm project files can be imported to Vegas like any other video or media asset. They can then be previewed and trimmed on the Vegas timeline without needing to first be rendered.
Any change you make to the project file in HitFilm will be automatically updated inside Vegas.
Performance of HitFilm project files in Vegas will be similar to performance inside HitFilm itself. Therefore intensive projects may not playback in real time.
Send to HitFilm
Any clip on the Vegas timeline can be sent directly to HitFilm.
To do this, right click a clip on the Vegas timeline and choose Add HitFilm Effect.
A HitFilm project file will be automatically created and swapped with the clip on the Vegas timeline, HitFilm will automatically start and the project file will be loaded with the video clip ready to go on the Editor sequence timeline.
Your original media file is unaffected by the conversion. You can swap back to the original using Vegas' 'takes' system.
