    Default Scrolling Text in Vegas Platinum 16:9 Projects

    Hi everyone!

    I've been trying to make text media scroll from one side of the screen to the other (news ticker style) using the Event Pan/Crop tool in 16:9 projects, only to have the text appear and disappear at the borders of a 4:3 screen within the 16:9 one. I have made sure that the resolutions of the project and all the text media were equal and tried many solutions, but have had no avail.

    I am currently using Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 9.0.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Are you talking about text media from the media generator within Vegas? If so, rather than using pan and crop, use the "placement" tab on the text media properties.

    Having said that, I have not managed to reproduce your problem. The only thing I can think of is that when you create your generated text media it extends beyond the boundary of the screen (the shaded area within the pan and crop dialog) Anything outside of that does not exist and hence cannot be ssen in a pan an crop.

    But if you are using Pan and Crop have you set it to widescreen in the drop down menu?

    I have tried keyframing the placement of the text instead of using pan/crop this time, but the same issue happened - and the text appeared higher than it should have in the render.

    Like I said, I made sure that the resolutions of ALL the media in my project are equal and in 16:9.
