Thread: Sony Vegas 7 Subtitle Problems..

    Question Sony Vegas 7 Subtitle Problems..

    Hello! I'm getting used to Vegas 7, and I know some stuff, but one problem keeps bugging me. Whenever I put a subtitle to a video clip in Vegas it goes transparent when I set the color of the letters to black. The darker I go, the more transparent the letters get. Red is mildly transparent, along with blue and green, but black is 100% transparent. It's quite irritating. If anyone knows how to fix this problem, it will be very helpful to me and I would greatly appreciate it!

    Also the same case goes with the noise textures. (i.e. puffy clouds, soft clouds, lava, plasma, etc.) The darker, the more transparent. I could really use some help!

    ~Thanks!

    Check the compositing mode for the track with the text/gen med is set to "Source Alpha" (this is one of the small green icons in the track header - left hand end of the track on the timeline)

    EDIT: And check the composition level (the slider thing) is set to 100%

    The track with the subtitle is set to "Source Alpha" and the slider next to it is set all the way to 100%.

    The track with the video is set to "Add" and the slider is at 100% as well.

    Still the black subtitles are transparent..

    Oh, and I used "Default Text" as my subtitles.

    Compositing mode - 'mask'.

    Everything 100% white should be transparent, 100% black will be opaque, other colours translucent.

    If all you want is opaque black text that should do it.

    If you want other colours to be transparent / opaque - use the chroma key tool to make the back ground colour only transparent.

    I don't want any of the text's colors to be transparent. I want black subtitles but it won't work!

    Really could do with some screen shots. Something is not set right and you're not telling us.........
    What happens if you start a new project from scratch.
    Just stick some video on track 2 and do a simple text overlay on track 1.
