    Default Need some help in vegas

    It's kind of hard to describe, but I need something that has a strip of letters and numbers flying across the screen from side to side--- sort of like the matrix's green letters falling, but I need them to go from left to right and only in a little strip across the middle of the screen, and they have to be letters and numbers in a fast pace motion.. . Does anyone know how I would be able to do this?

    I don't know if that would work, I need it going from side to side, not top to bottom... and it needs to be at a fast paced motion (almost blurred) I don't know how I can do this... but I know it's possible. I've seen it in videos where the person has only used vegas for video editing.

    create lots of text layers and animate them at the desired speeds maybe add some motion blur.

    It will take some time to do but the more you put in the better the result.

    Hi,

    You could use the "Insert Text Media" on one video track and lay letters and numbers on top of each other within the text media tool, then use the key frames to move at different speeds along the time line.

    This will also allow you to create different text effects within this tool. Open the placement tab to position the text starting point and end point.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm sure there's been an echo in the Vegas threads lately....

    Just, making suggestions that might come across a little clearer.

    "create lots of text layers and animate them at the desired speeds maybe add some motion blur."
    I thought that it suggested creating multiple "Video Tracks", I suggested one "Video Track", then explained the placement a little clearer.

    Sorry if my contributions offend??????
