Yes, those are possible. You need to get comfortable with masks and keyframes. With a mask, you can easily cut out a small section of a video. With keyframes, you can track the motion of that section.

As for training materials:

Edward...will Vegas 5 be worth the upgrade?

I ask this knowing you are into wedding videography as I am myself. Are any of the new features helpfull for this genre...better yet- $300 helpful?

I see ads now for Vegas+DVD, new additions in Vegas that are touted are:
-3D motion and compositing
-Keyframable bezier masking (???)
-Control surface support (???)
-Evelope automation recording (???)
-Auto-input record monitoring
-Film-style 5.1 surround panning (???)
-Real-time A/V event reverse (wonder if they fixed the problem where you can't reverse spliced clip)
-Media Subclip creation (? Similar to Premiere's Virtual Clips ?)
-Customizable keyboard mapping
-Networked rendering
- and much more ( ???)

Ad on the back of the May issue of Digital Videomaker.

It's an add for Vegas+DVD "production suite"- which also lists some of the new features in DVD Architect 2:

-End actions (woo hooo!)
-Multiple audio tracks (where's mutliple camera angles!)
-Subtitle support
-24p DVD encoding (that's ALREADY supported?!)
-Elementary Stream Import
-Project overview window (???)
-Real-time external monitor previews (nice!)
-And much more (???)

Good you have it solved. The problem most likely isn't Vegas at
all since I can't see why it would need Terminal services for it
to run. But Vegas is probably using some component of Windows
that does require it to run. So there you have it.

Quote from SonyDennis:

Vegas supports Windows XP "Fast User Switching" and this uses "Terminal Services".

Hi,

End Actions allow you to specify what will happen when a process "Ends". For example, right now if you have three small MPG files and make a DVD in DVDA, you will get the first one to play and it will return to the menu. You can play the second one and it will return to the menu. With end actions, you can specify that the first one is to play and then, when it is finished, the second one is to play.

Multiple audio tracks can be useful when you want to put out a DVD with English and Spanish voices, for example. Or maybe you want the standard sound track and a "commentary" track.

Sweet -- bezier masks, subclips and network rendering. Everything but the kitchen sink, apparently.

I know my pennies are saved :D
