Thread: Event pan/crop help

    Default Event pan/crop help

    Hi all,

    I'm new to this forum, but i'm in need of some urgent help.

    I dont really know how to explain what I need:

    Basically I want to take a section of the video im making and place it in a different section - sort of like picture in picture, but I want the selection of the image I take to be placed in a different section yet not become a different section!!!!

    Because I am struggling to explain this I have made something that may help explain this better than me:

    I really hope someone can help me.

    Thank you in anticipation.

    Thanks for posting the pics. That really helped explain the challenge.

    As you might expect it's actually quite simple.
    Use Pan and Crop (as you have done in your example) to crop the image to the bit you want to show.
    Use TRACK MOTION to position the cropped image on your displayed screen. Track motion is one of the icons in the track header - the bit to the left of each track on the timeline.

    Incidentally, you don't say whether you have Vegas Pro or one of the Movie Studio versions. To produce a result as per your "something like this" example, you'll need Vegas Pro or you'll need to produce interim renders as each "image" (nine in your example) will require one track and VMS has a maximum of four video tracks.

    Thankyou so much.

    That was stupidly simple. I have sony Vegas Pro 8, I have just given it a try and it is exactly what I needed to do

    Thanks again
