Mixing Two Video Clips

I want to mix two video clips on the timeline to produce transparent effect (50%) of first clip to second one, but not to use "cooky cutter" and it's shapes, but this effect to appear on the full size of the screen.Is it possible in Vegas?
Regards.

Moving Blur Effects

I'm making one advertising clip for car and I want to hide hotels name on the bord of the top of the bilding with blur effects, but I don't know how to apply such effects on the one part of the video clip only.I know how to apply blur using "key frames" to appear and disappear in desired time, but how to apply moving blur only on the one part using X and Y coordinates????
Regards.

Lower the opacity?

On the top track, move the mouse to the top of the clip. Click and drag the blue line down.

In the full version, there's a right-click option to get it back in sync either by moving or slipping.

Copy the audio to a second track. On one track, right-click, switches, LEFT ONLY and on the other right-click, switches, RIGHT-ONLY.

Take a look at Vol 1 #12 of my newsletters specifically for the article Blurring Faces a la "Cops".

what is strange is that when I view the subject's while he is talking, it's in perfect sync, even though its pink...it could possibly because I have cut this up quite a bit and overdubbed?

It's quite possible, yes. And in VMS, the synchronization is the same; right click, choose Sychronize by: and choose "moving or slipping"

thanks guys for your help - you saved the day. I clicked on "slipping" and it took care of the problem. There was another option, but I didn't use that..what is that one used for?

You could have a duplicate layer of the footage with a garbage matte applied so only the sign is showing, then blur it on the top layer...if the camera moves, it will be more difficult, but not impossible.

Custom Building An HDV Vegas Editing Solution with ConnectHD

I'm looking for feedback as to any kinks that might exist in this current configuration as I've never built an Intel system (AMD normally) and I tried selecting the components based on what my budget allows and what would be the most bang within that budget:

Intel Pentium D 950 Presler 800MHz FSB LGA 775 Dual Core Processor Model BX80553950 - Retail 3.4Ghz

ABIT AW8D Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 975X ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

4Gb - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 675 (PC2 5400) Unbuffered System Memory Model TWIN2X2048-5400c4 - Retail

XFX PV-T71G-UDF7 GeForce 7900 GT (470MHz) 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

2 (RAID 0) Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Used for the video files

1 Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3808110AS 80GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - used for the OS and Editing Apps

ASPIRE X-Navigator ATXA9N-BK/500 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case ATX 500W dual fan w/ automatic fan speed control. Connector 20 + 4 pin Power Supply - Retail

Since I already have one I'm considering adding another Gateway 21inch widescreen so that I can make use of both DVI outs on the video card.

The total for all that hits just under $1450 not counting the extra monitor which would push that total to right at $2000. I guess I'm wondering based on the fact that I'm going to be running Vegas 6 and ConnectHD if there are any better ways to spend that money.

Does that get me close to realtime HDV editing using the ConnectHD codec? That's my primary thrust for building this as I have an Athlon 64 setup for DV editing but it's almost 2 years old now.

Thoughts? Ideas? And of course there are tons of new reviews flooding the net today about the Core 2 processors that apparently spank all these existing chips by a wide margin and for less money. I'm so confused. :/

That's not what I heard... perhaps you meant Sony XDCAM?

Anyways, take a look at

Pixelated edge artifacts

I found a few posts about this here but none really answered the question of how to lower the amount of pixelation (mainly for red colors) on the outer edges of objects.

I filmed a pageant and many of the girls wore red dresses, filmed with a PD170 and imported directly from dv into vegas with no correction, and ALL have the jagged artifacts even when moving only slightly.

Any fx within Vegas that could limit this (I've tried a bunch before posting) or should I be looking in another direction for a solution?

thanks!

Copying Video To A Different Vegas File

Hey, does anyone know how to copy events and then paste them into a different vegas work file? I have two separate work files, tried copying some events, closed that work file, opened the other work file and tried to paste the events - but it wouldnt let me.

Is there some way to import them or something??

Thanks as always...
