I will NOW :-)

Seriously though, it's somewhat similar to sliding a transition with Ctrl/Alt and adjusting the in point of one event and the out point of another simultaneously, which I do all the time.

Alpha Compositing

Good Day,

I have done this many times before, but this time no success.

I am using a video animation I have purchased as a mask in the parent track. I have a still photo in the child track. The black portion of the parent track is the area that requires the still to show through, and I have set the alpha properties of the parent track media to 'straight (unmatted)'.

Can some kind soul point out the simple process to achieve the desired result of having the still in the child track show through in the black area of the parent track.

This is a great forum! Thanks for your help in advance!

Track 1 - Mask

Track 2 - That which shows through Mask

Track 3 - That which Shows "Outside" area of Mask - that is the background of the Mask


Make a Parent Child of Track 1 and Track 2.

Just done it to make sure . . .

Vegas + AMD

Does anybody have any comments about using VV5 with a laptop running an AMD 64 chip (specifically the E-machines M-6809).

Graham,

Thanks for the reply. I have done this, and it still does not seem to work.

If possible, please give me the step by step. I have been racking by brains to determine where I am going wrong.

The mask media is a Quicktime Video File set to straight unmatted alpha channel.

The child image is a .png file.

I am finalizing my work on a documentary highlighting my church's 110th year anniversary, and this is one of the items I have left till last to complete.

Thanks for your help!

In Vegas 5, you now need to add the Mask "Effect" to track 1.

I don't know that particular chip or computer but many people are running Vegas on AMD chips.

square in the middle of track motion

I was toying around with the track motion and i noticed (if you don't you are blind) that there is a square that always stay there throughout the whole lenght of the clip . See example here:

Make sure "Split Screen View" (one of the buttons above the preview window) is turned OFF.

Apple Steals The Show

Quote from the Sunday Mail, Queensland Australia, :

"At the recent National Association of Broadcasters annual convention in Las Vegas, Apple stole the show with its latest digital video offerings. It added high-definition capabilities to its flagship program Final Cut Pro, released DVD studio Pro 3 and Shake 3.5, and introduced a new motion graphics program called, fittingly, Motion."

Not the picture I got from here! :)
