Another Vegas Question

I've got a still picture of a digital audio recorder in my timeline. I'm trying to overlay a .png file of a callout graphic so I can point out buttons on the audio recorder. Problem is, when I add another callout graphic to show another button and use track motion to move it so it's superimposed over the right spot, it ends up in the same position as the first callout overlay.

If I try to move the second item to its proper place, again using track motion, the first one follows suit and ends up being mispositioned.

Is there a way around this?

Is it possible you could use pan and crop instead of track motion?

Steve, you have a couple of options:

1. Use multiple tracks (don't know which version you have but the pro version allows unlimited tracks.)

2. Use KEYFRAMES. Sounds like you're always adjusting the first keyframe instead of adding a new keyframe for each image. So that it doesn't gradually change, you would also need to right-click each keyframe and change it to a "Hold" keyframe.
