Panning/zomming over more than one photo.

I've seen a neat photo montage created by Josh Fozzard that pans over several pictures as if you are flying in from overhead. I believe he used After Affects. Will Vegas do anything like that or is there a Vegas plug-in available that has that capability?

You can view his award winning photo montage at

Thanks,
Wade McLeod

Vegas has track motion, but that is all.

To duplicate Josh's work you would need to buy his templates, which he sells, and use AE.

Most of those effects can easily be done in Vegas, acouple of them might be rather difficult.

Although you won't get the same effect as the link above, putting movement into photos is very easy to do in Vegas and many superb effects are possible. Just load the pics on the timeline and then use Pan and Crop with key framing to get the movement you want, e.g. from one part of the picture to another, zooming into top left corner or whatever, very gradual slow speed zoom in or out, pan etc. etc. etc. as you want for each specific picture.

I've done it numerous times in sync with with good music soundtrack and it looks great. There are lots of different software ways to do this but Vegas can do it simply and fast and yields great results.

There is a short sequence in this promo clip which might give you an idea - I've done it much better/more complex than this but this link is readily to hand. Hope this helps.

Yes, you're right Andy...you won't get even close to the same effect.

use Pan and Crop to accomplish pretty much anything of this type. It takes some time but if you have Excalibur you can do it with 1 click.

Yes, I know it's not the same effect. I was editing my post, writing and viewing all at the same time! Not good at multitasking! Still a great way of jazzing up pictures thought.

Don, thanks to your post I have downloaded a copy of Excalibur, the reveiws are pretty impressive...I use Ultimate S, but apparently Ex has some great photomontage features, just downloaded a demo...

Jeff,
Here is one I did a while back for a Fire Academy graduation. It has a limited amount of photos but you can expand it. Just an idea of what can be done entirely in Vegas.

Thanks, Terry, but I cannot open the video, and there is no media with the download....I'm trying to replace the media with my own photos but having no luck yet....

Terry,
Thanks! I just viewed your video and downloaded the veg file. It is exactly what I was looking for. Now I just have to figure out how you did it!

Thanks all for helping by replying to my very first DVi post!

This was done with Vegas. It is my video but I didn't create the original template. It was called Ruth's 80 Birthday which I mentioned a while back in another post.
