Wow, I thought I knew a lot of addons. But this is … speechless here.

How many of these are 2.8x compatible? I’ve dl’ed a couple but they don’t seem to work in 2.8x. Impressive list, less-than-impressive results. Just sayin’.

If there is a script you’re in need of, you could try to update it using this add-on: https://github.com/tin2tin/Update_Check_2.80 Or you could let the coders know that you have an interest in their add-on.

This one is a must-have and updated for 2.8+: https://github.com/snuq/VSEQF

Thanks for the links, @tin2tin . I will try your Update Check but I’m afraid even if it does find any incompatibilities I certainly wouldn’t know how to fix them (99% Python-ignorant as I am). I suppose asking the authors of the add-ons certainly would be the way to go but the ones I’m interested in are at least two years old and appear abandoned.

Regarding the VSEQF add-on, I was already looking at that. It seems interesting enough to at least play around with! Cheers!

If you copy/paste and run this script in the blender text editor, you’ll find pretty img in the VSE sidebar under Misc: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Botmasher/blender-vse-customizations/master/vse/pretty_img.py

If you want to install it instead change the version number to 2.80 in this file: https://github.com/Botmasher/blender-vse-pretty-img/blob/master/init.py

The reset aspect ratio script also works, all you need is to change the version number.

Well, you are the man! :+1: Changing the version number in both of these addons allow me to use them…as scripts, which honestly is better than nothing.

I tried installing both (Preferences > Add-ons > Install) and once installed changed the version numbers in my addons folder but “Pretty Image” throws an error and “reset aspect ratio” doesn’t even show up. Time to stop bugging you (and the followers of this thread) and start asking the developers themselves. In any case, thanks for all your help, @tin2tin! :heart:

One last note: I did install VSEQF and so far it is pretty nice! Thanks again for the tip!
