    Default How do I add figures/people into Sony Vegas Pro 11??

    I am editing a horror/comedy/documentary for school and I need to put a person (just standing, no movement) behind a couch looking at the camera. So can someone link me to a tutorial or tell me. Thank You!

    Is this person a still photo or video, what background does the person have around them.

    its a still, and the background is a low light room, and i was going to flicker the video (like the camera is messing up) how they do in horror movies.

    Probably the easiest way to do it is to bring the still into photoshop and cut away the background save the image with a transparent background as a .png file. This can then be imported into Vegas on a timeline above the video track. You will then have the person with the video being visable. You may have to adjust the size and position of the person to make it look right with the pan/crop tool.

    If your still stuck having done these steps you can always come back here with a specific question.

    Good suggestion, can I add to make the cutoff slightly blurred/faded so it doesn't show the join...?

    Yes, you use "feathering" when you cut it out in photoshop.
