Guys I've been wondering if there's any plans to add some kind of general sound option for Visionlab, etc.. I have trouble coordinating and timing the gun shots with muzzleflashes. especially machine guns. Most machine gun sound fx are pretty long and on and off(they pause between sevral shots), I ask b-cause it'd be great to hear the sond fx while placing muzzle flashes, etc..
Just askin, but it would help in many ways

Thanks as always

We don't have any plans to add sound editing into VisionLab, I'm afraid.

However, it sounds like you're over-complicating thigns for yourself by doing things the wrong way around. You should apply the sound effects after the visual effects.

That way you can apply the muzzle flashes, then render out the VFX shot and add your gun sound effects on at the appropriate points where the muzzle flashes appear.

I see what u mean jejeje, I forgot to state another thing, like in terms of revolvers it's easy to do, because u see the hammer coming down and u can coordinate the effect with the action, but for example, airsoft guns for instance, are quite difficult. Because there is no sound available, like a reference "BANG!!!" to know when the shot has to be inserted, my only other option is to zoom in and carefully watch the finger pulling the trigger to coodrdinate the effect. I dunno maybe I am complicating things, Im gonna try to upload a clip to show u what I mean.

But as always, thanks for your time and effort in explaining things to me a bit clearer jejeje
