    Twixtor Pro now can be used as a Plugin in Sony Vegas 10 along with many other OFX based plugins (like those from The Foundry - Nuke). No more going to After Effects.

    Here is a sample (a difficult one because of the high contrast background) without tweaking.

    You also need to export this while processing with Twixtor as Sony YUV uncompressed codec and then reconvert to whatever your final encode is, mp4 etc. Other codecs may work, still experimenting. Also when processing it's important change the preview quality of the Vegas Video preview to Good (Auto).

    This is awesome news for Sony Vegas users, no need to go to After effects or other hosts, you can stay in Vegas all the time.

    You need Sony Vegas Pro V10 and ReVision FX Twixtor 5.1.1 OFX version.
    Depending on what version of windows, in XP, Twixtor folder goes into the Program Files/Common Files/OFX/Plugins

    I don't have Vegas Pro 10 on my Windows 7 laptop so may be different.
    In windows 7 it may have to be installed in the OFX folder in Program/Sony/Vegas10/plugins/OFX.

    Twixtor must be the OFX version.

    Apply like any effect in Vegas and render out to Sony YUV uncompressed. I used the default settings as i'm not familiar with Twixtor Pro parameters yet to tweak the warping so the sample i posted has artifacts on the feet and hands of the paddler. I've since slowed it 3x slower again and it's still butter smooth.

    That's about all i know ATM.

    Cheers R

    why's it need to be exported to 10-bit? doesn't export to h.264 directly?

    I can see by the project name that you had a crash at some point...

    I'm only on a duel core XP machine, rendering to uncompressed was easier on it. Yes it crashed once when i tried to apply the effect to a clip that was too long (2 mins ) and ran out of memory, so had to trim it. It will export to mp4 or any other format.

    Project properties as normal ie matching clip, resample enabled (made no difference on or off), Vegas speed ratio left at 1.00. All Twixtor settings were default.
    All retiming is done with the pluggin.

    I'm tweaking a 720p version slowed to 5% so will post that here soon.

    I know this is not the most fantastic example, but the exciting part is not having to go outside of Vegas. I hate After Effects, so hard to learn.

    The only limitation i've found so far is you can't render out to Cineform, Canopus HQ or Matrox codec, only the Vegas internal codecs. No big deal

    This is my timeline workflow in Sony Vegas and it seems to work quite good:

    1. Split and trim the clip you want to slow down
    2. Right click on the clip and select "Create Subclip"
    3. Make sure that Switches->Loop is enabled for the sub clip.
    4. Drag out the clip so that you got 5 loops after each other
    5. Drag the Twixtor FX to the clip and set the Speed % = 20
    6. Render, I have just tested Sony AVC (mp4) and it works fine.
    7. Enjoy your slow motion clip.

    This example is for 20%, if you want 10% you need to create 10 loops of the clip, 5% = 20 loops and so on...

    Cheers Rambo
