I'm using Sony Vegas 6 and I've worked on simple projects using many overlaying video tracks, but each one squarely cropped/panned/motion tracked to a different size etc.
But now I want to select a part of visible area from one video track, and crop anything around it. And overlay this selected area ontop of anything else.
I'll give you my example...
I've drawn a cartoon figure. The face doesn't have a mouth. I have video'd my mouth up close, as I talk.
Now I want to cut out my mouth, selecting round it ideally (so, sort of oval shape, ideally i should be able to draw round it -- rather like cutting something out in a paint program) and crop around it. Is there a tool to do this? Would have thought it was quite an obvious requirement.
...Thus giving my cartoon character an animated mouth. (I'm going to fill colour the characters face the same colour as my skin, hopefully blending better with my mouth video. So if there was also a way to fade out the edges of the mouth video, it should blend better into the cartoons face colour.
Ok, I'll be fascinated to hear the answer! Thanks in advance.
