Thread: Frame Editing Vegas 8

    Default Frame Editing Vegas 8

    I need to fix some of the background in a small piece of video. Is there a way to edit each frame as if it were a photogragh and then put it back into video?

    I have some background that needs to be cloned because it is missing in some areas. So can I take the piece of video and put it in Photoshop, fix the background and put it back in vegas?

    Or is there a better easier more correct way to perform this?

    Sony Vegas 8

    Any help appreciated.

    Your suggested method would work but see later. Create an image of each frame by displaying it in the preview window (Best resolution) and clicking the "save" button (looks like a floppy disk) above it. This will save a jpg. After fixing, import the amended photos for exactly one frame each.

    Quicker is to put video with the correct background on a higher track, open up pan & crop on that event, select the "mask" check box at the bottom of the window and draw a frame around the corrected portion. If the corrected portion is not in exactly the same place as on the "target" video, all is not lost - use track motion on the corrected portion to move it to the correct place.

    I realise this is just a quick hint rather than a tutorial - search help for "Bezier Mask" and you'll get more detail.

    There is an option in V& pro and lower to export a sequence from the time line as individual pictures, as in a Still Image sequence.

    In fact there is a tutorial to do such a thing in You tube
