Done exclusively in Vegas - no AE required...

Hey People, It's time to share, If everyone participates this could be game changing for alot of us.
Please submit one or two of your best "tricks", some combination of FX or compositing that you think is cool that most of us wouldnt think to do in Vegas.
Titling,
keyframing,
compositing modes,
3D,
whatever....
I'll throw out 2 that I've already got on the net..
YouTube - Sony Vegas Intro

and a tutorial if anyone's bored
YouTube - 3D Text part 2

Can I ask that you Pro guys participate as well, even if your not going to learn much from this, it sure makes you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside to give something back to people that are learning.
cheers people :)
ps. Thanks for the title Mike.

Thanks very much Gerald.
What you've done in your tutorials is something I've never played with in Vegas (AE scares me!!) but you make it look very easy.
Maybe Edward can add a "Compositing Tutorials" sticky so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle in the next few days.

There's already a tutorials sticky. I don't see a reason right now to create a specific compositing tutorial category. Just add them to the tutorial sticky.

Wow. Superb. I've just watched several Short Stack videos, they are all amazing. I loved Sway Sway Baby. I loved the rabbit. Great band. Great videos.

thanks guys,
all Short Stack's vids are directed by the very brilliant Dan Reisinger. I was lucky enough to be on set for the Sweet December film clip, was amazing to watch the pros at work, you can learn so much.
I believe the new Disco Honey clip is to be made public sometime in the next 24 hrs, should be amazing. I'll post a link when I have it.
:)
