    It's more or less the same, but it might take you a minute to wrap your head around the new GUI & layout. I recommend creating a backup of your ved file as once you open & save a ved in Visionaire Studio 5, you won't be able to open it again in Visionaire Studio 4.

    By the way, you can have both 4.x & 5.x installed at the same time.

    As for Lua script. It's a really easy language to learn. Once you understand the basics, you just need to use the wiki or Simon's Luadocs documentation page to get the data structure table names for accessing/manipulating various things in Visionaire Studio.

    https://wiki.visionaire-tracker.net/wiki/Scripting (basic introduction to scripting in visionaire studio using the data structure).

    https://wiki.visionaire-tracker.net/wiki/Data_Structure (the page with all of the different visionaire objects [VisOBJ] listed including descriptions)

    https://wiki.visionaire-tracker.net/wiki/Player_Commands (exclusive Lua functions for visionaire studio)

    https://wiki.visionaire-tracker.net/wiki/Compiled_Index_of_L... (compiled list of different scripts & other useful things - bunch of my scripts & workflow functions on that page)

    http://www.visionaire-studio.com/luadocs/ (simon's luadocs documentation page, which is more up to date than the wiki & has lots of code snippet examples, but unfortunately the data structure stuff has no descriptions)
