    Does anyone know how to watermark a video on Sony Vegas?

    For what reason? I guess if you wanted to you can make some sort of text, put it on a seperate track then adjust the opasity level. I have not tried it but it should work.

    I would do it in vegas, less fiddly more easier too.

    Stick the w mark on the track above the film, adjust size /opacity to taste, add chromakey if needed.

    If you want a more complex watermark, with a graphic, you can create it is something like Photoshop with a transparent background (only .psd files can do this) and, as mentioned above, put it on a separate track above the video and adjust transparence to suit.

    The crop and pan can adjust size and positioning for you.

    Always something new. I love it!

    Thanks for the .psd transparency hint, I dint know that and I despair of trying to chroma on jpegs.

    I hate anything adobe so use Paintshop Pro. Exporting .png or gif you can have a transparent background too. Png's seem particularly good quality and work well with Vegas.

    I'm absolutely intrigued by that statement!. Why?.

    .......and another thing!!! (nagging wife voice) what is this ping thing?. Ive always (in my short experience with Vegas) used PSD and JPEG files in Vegas with great success but I read more and more that Vegas prefers PNG files. What do PNG files have that PSD and JPEG's don't?.

    I, too am intrigued by this statement. I have used Photoshop for years and have no problem with it. It will also do .png and .gif formats. I also have PSP, but find it harder to use and not nearly as capable as Photoshop. Having said that, I'll admit my wife uses PSP and not PS. But then, she likes doing things the hard way. Heh Heh

    Nothing sinister about it at all. I just really can't get on with the Adobe interface and never have been able to. Trouble is, as Sirman says I think it is far more capable than PSP, but after you get used to something....

    The only time I use anything else is when I need a CMYK output (for commercial printing especially) and then I use Coreldraw. And I don't like that very much either.

    The tossing around required to chroma out a bg colour from a jpeg just meant I tried other formats. Gifs seem to be a bit naff, PNGs always clear, and further, if you have a drop shadow or something with a fading edge, the png seems to handle it better.
