If you're referring to the shaking motion then do a search for a littel plugin called "vegas quake" and that should set you right up.
I can't remeber the name of the guy that wrote it but a search on the name (search in the Sony Vegas site)should get it.

Here is the link:

http://www.rmtools.se/vegasquake.html

Goto TOOLS and then SCRIPTING and then RUN SCRIPT (It'll prompt you to select Script from there; so remember where you put it)

After you have it in place; use the same method to RUN it in the future.

I hate downloading EXE files. Is this the normal way that scripts are shared?

Scripts are shared in various ways. This one happens to be an EXE file that will automatically copy the necessary files for you.

Excalibur, Tsunami, and Neon are also distributed as EXE files so the proper files can be placed in the proper folders automatically. For example, they automatically locate where you installed Vegas and install into the Script Menu folder so they will be readily available without manually searching.

Many of the scripts you download are simply a single .js or .vb file which you must manually place in the correct location (or manually browse to them each time)

Finally, some are distributed as .ZIP which must be unpacked together in the proper/desired location.

If multiple files are required, you'll usually find them as either EXE or ZIP. If only the single file is required, you'll usually find them as .JS or .VB

yes, all the time BUT if you ignore the error message the program works fine.

With VV4 there was no error message, with VV5 even with the NEW Vegas Quake there is but it works. It GOOFY!

I used to run it in Vegas 4 and it ran perfectly. In Vegas 5 it gives me an error message but when I close out the error message the program does work. Very strange indeed. I don't use it that often and the Stuttering video from Excalibur (plugin) works along the same lines but has more control.
