Please help (lower 3rd)

I know a lot of you guys have Adobe After Effect. Can anyone of you help me out? I saw this youtube video and I really like it. If you can help me. I thank you very much.

Create the bars as two images. Use two tracks above the video to place those two images. Use Pan/Crop to position the beginning and ending positions to make them "fly in".

I was able to duplicate this lower 3rd with Vegas. I used 2 solid blue, use track motion to resize it and pan/crop and keyframing it. I also use Gaussian Blur. Turned out not to bad, I like it so far. I want to render it as an Alpha Channel but it grey out. On the Vegas timeline, the clip properties> Media> Alpha Channel> I changed to Straight (unmatted) and I rendered to an uncompressed AVI. I import the lower 3rd into Vegas timeline above the Video track and I can not see the video below the lower 3rd. Can any one tell me how to make it Alpha channel?

If you go into the custom options for uncompressed AVI, there's a checkbox to include transparency. I know it's in the Pro version but unsure about the Movie Studio versions.

Edward,
I go into custom options and select uncompressed AVI and checked render alpha channel. I import that clip into Vegas timeline and it still not working. I check the clip properties> Media , it show Alpha channel is NONE even though I select straight (unmatted). Any other idea why. I am using Vegas Pro 9.0e.


Bruce


PS. Finally got it. On the track header, I've to select 3D soruce alpha, and the clip properties shown alpha channel (Straight unmatted). Bingo.

Plain Source Alpha should work without the "3D" part.
