Sony Vegas v14 will make all Vegas Scripts and Extension unusable

From a post by Gary Rebholz long time trainer at Sony, there will be changes to the scripting to make the current scripts unusable in Vegas 14, however he does offer a solution fro scripts (not compiled extensions)

“Prompted by a discussion on the Vegas Pro-Video forum, I wanted to give you all a little heads-up warning about a change for scripting in the upcoming VEGAS Pro 14.
Unfortunately, legal considerations will force us to change the scripting namespace and thus all existing scripts will need to be modified in order to work inside VEGAS Pro 14. It will be a minor, but critical change. We’re still working out the details, but once we have them, we will tell you exactly what you’ll need to change in your scripts.”

Gary go’s on to say

“Here’s more information on what will happen:

The scripting namespace for VEGAS Pro 14 changes from “Sony” to “ScriptPortal”. In your scripts, any occurrence of items like “Sony.Vegas” or “Sony.MediaSoftware” must be changed to “ScriptPortal.Vegas” and “ScriptPortal.MediaSoftware”. We chose this namespace (“ScriptPortal”) in order to remove any company branding and thus avoid this problem in the future.

For stand-alone scripts (not a compiled extension), you can easily make this change yourself even without any programming knowledge. Open the script with Notepad (always work on a copy of the script in case you make a mistake) and replace “Sony” with “ScriptPortal”. Save the script with a new filename so that you still have a copy that works in pre-14 versions of VEGAS Pro.

As has been pointed out, if you use extensions (like JohnnyRoy’s VASST tools or jetdv’s Excalibur and Montage Magic) instead of simple scripts, you are dependent upon the script developer to make these changes and recompile the extension.

Next, any scripts that use Sony branded plugins will also need to change the name from Sony to VEGAS. For example, if a script currently uses “Sony Sharpen”, you need to change that script to “VEGAS Sharpen”. Again, you can easily do this yourself in Notepad (always work on a copy of the script in case you make a mistake) unless it is a compiled extension in which case the original developer must make the change and recompile.
