Thread: Two new user questions

    Default Two new user questions

    Hello everyone and happy new year. I am new to the site and have likely two basic questions.

    I am doing a :30 slide show with several still images, but need a logo in the bottom corner of the entire video. Is this possible without having to put it on every image?

    My last question is from a previous video that I created. (You will have to forgive me because I had to teach the program to myself in about 4 hours. So I know I am limiting its opportunities.) How do I make sure that each image fits the screen. In my last video the black border changed when some of the stills changed. I want each image to fit to the screen and stay the same during the video's duration.

    Thanks for any tips and let me know if I need to further clarify.

    Maybe I can help on the first of your questions by providing this YouTube tutorial, but your second question is an area that I don’t have that much experience in, so I have to let that one go; but try this for the watermarking:

    YouTube - Adding a watermark or video bug logo in Sony Vegas

    And by the way “Welcome” to the forum.

    Hi and welcome.
    To make the image fit the screen you need to do one of the following
    1: Make sure your image has the same aspect ratio as your project - that is if your project is 16:9 make sure your images are all 16 x 9
    2: Crop the images within Vegas to force them to be the same aspect ratio as your project.
    3: Stretch (disfigure) the image to match your output aspect ratio.

    (1) is achieved outside Vegas
    (2) & (3) are achieved using Pan & Crop....
    each event (eg your images) on the timeline will have two icons down the left hand side (three icons if it's generated media). The top (middle) one is the pan/crop icon. Click on it and the pan/crop window will open up. Play with this a while, whilst watching the results in the preview window. You'll learn far quicker that way than if I give you step by step instructions (to say nothing of me avoiding RSI)
