Thread: Problem getting Video Overlay to Appear at bottom of screen

  1. Default Problem getting Video Overlay to Appear at bottom of screen

    After a brief absence, hi everyone.

    I recently upgraded from Pinnacle Studio 11 to SVegas 9 Platinum Ed. and have not come across any issues until recently.

    My problem is this:

    - I have a VIDEO TRACK that contains avi clips and jpegs of 1680x1050 resolution.
    - Using the VIDEO OVERLAY TRACK I have added another jpeg to appear over the main VIDEO TRACK. This is a much smaller JPEG. About 400x200.
    - When I add the smaller jpeg, it appears centred. But when I try to drag it to the bottom edge of the screen, it disappears into what looks like a black border or margin, on the preview screen.

    Does anyone know how to get the smaller jpeg to appear towards bottom of the screen?

    It occurs to me that the problem may be that the smaller jpeg's (in the VIDEO OVERLAY TRACK) actual screensize is fixed to the resolution it is in, and does not fill the resolution of the item in the main VIDEO TRACK.

    So what should I do?

    Everyone reading this gets a free call-me-klutz card.... I managed to find the Croma Key FX and made sure that the smaller jpeg was teh same res as the main video res, but with an unused colour.

    Works a treat!

    You need to match the aspect ration then that usually cures it failing that use the motion tracking buttons on the left where the slider is.
