Thread: Moving Masks?

  1. #1

    Default Moving Masks?

    Hey there everyone! I'm new to the forums as well as new to Vegas. I originally used Adobe Premier Pro for all my video editting needs, but after seeing work from Vegas I decided it was more suited for my needed editting techniques. However, the project Im currently working on is very demanding. I understand how to use masks, it's immensely helpful... However, what about moving masks? Im trying to take a character from one series, and add them to a second series. Meaning, I want to take a completely out of place character and put it into a seperate clip. Now with masking this works fine, but the problem is, I want to have the character moving as well so that they can interact with the others. I have no idea how to go about doing this. Any ideas?

    I could help you in adobe premiere but you're now in vegas but what you should do is keyframe it like you would in premiere .

    RDNIS is correct - you use keyframes
    More specifically, you use Bezier masks and keyframes -
    On the event containing the character use open up Event Pan & Crop.
    Check the tick-box at the bottom of the window labelled "Mask"
    You can now draw a mask around the character.
    Move forward a few frames and move/add/delete the anchor points to suit.
    This will automatically create a new keyframe.
    Repeat ad nauseum.
