Thread: Hello all and question about overlapping video

    Default Hello all and question about overlapping video

    Hello all, glad to find this forum. I have a fixed camera shot of some miniatures. I then over the course of a couple of minutes then barrage them with explosive missiles. I have Vegas Platinum. How would I overlap the clips to have them show both video at the same time since the background and miniatures don't move, only the missiles? Hoping in the end I can make it look like a meteor shower that lasts for five seconds.

    Thanks

    Not entirely sure what you mean but.....

    (A) If you have two identical shots, (exactly the same, same miniatures in same position, locked down tripod etc) with the only difference being the explosions then,,,

    Put the main video on track two and the track containing the explosions on track 1
    Drop the COMPOSITE level of track 1 down to something below 100% - this allows the track(s) below to show through.

    (B) If you want to superimpose the explosions over the stills then the explosions footage has to contain ONLY the explosions against a solid colour background. The use a technique known a chromakeying to make the background colour transparent. (Search for chromakey, greenscreen, bluescreen for details)
