    Vegas assumes that if you import an image you want it to fill the screen and does its best to achieve that. Most of the time that's true (think about it, if you import a still it will most likely be far bigget than 720x576 or 720x480 - which you don't want it to be anyway as DV pixels are a different shape to camera pixels.

    Use the pan and crop tool to get the picture the right size.

    Rather than the Pan Crop I usually stick the image on another track and use track motion to size. Look in help for TRACK MOTION.

    Andy:
    I'm sure I read in a thread that resizing in Pan and Crop is preferable as it resamples the original image, whereas resizing using Track Motion works with the image post Pan and Crop. If that's the case if you a start with a hi res image and zoom in using P&C you'll get better resolution than zooming in using TM. I think I need to experiment rather than rely on (mis?) remembered threads.

    Of course in this instance, where the idea is to zoom out, it'll make no difference.

    JaneDoe:
    To take the image smaller than the video frame, go into pan and crop. Ensure "Maintain aspect ratio" and "Size about centre" are on, grab a corner of the dotted square around the "F" and drag outwards.


    OK I've had a play - here's a demo of zooming using both methods:
