Thread: Merging/Interlacing Two Videos

    Default Merging/Interlacing Two Videos

    Hello,

    I just started using Vegas and I would like to make a special effect. I want to take two different videos and interlace them together. So basically I want 1 (or more) second(s) to play from say video A then switch to video B for a second and then back to Video A, and so on until the videos run out. Hopefully this will give the overall video a simple shutter effect.

    If there a simple way to do this?

    Yes. Go through the tutorials and learn about splitting clips.

    But here's a pointer to get you started (I'm not giving you keystroke by keystroke instructions - this is all you're getting untill I'm satisfied you'ce done the tutorials, read the manual and produced a Hollywood blockbuster)

    Put clip A on track 1, then clip be on track 2. Line them up so they're in sync.

    On track 1 move the cursor say 1 second in (to where you want clip B to play)
    Press "S"
    Move the cursor to where you want clip A to come back in.
    Press "S"
    Now click on the bit between the two splits you've just created and press "Delete"

    Now preview it and you'll see what's going on.

    Yea like tim says its just editing.

    Are you looking for a lazy way ? If so - go find another hobby. lols. Editing is 10% inspitration 90% perspiration, and coffee and fags.

    For nice work with lots of fancy and clever editing I reckon on one hour per minute of output minimum, and up to one working day per minute for really cool stuff.

    And that's when you've become efficient. Expect longer - much longer - when you're learning.
