    How I can achieve fake camera movement like shown here at 1:39 ?

    The original footage is static but it looks like the editor has added subtle movements and slight tilts to mimic the random movements of someone holding a camera.

    Is there an easier way to do this in Vegas Pro than painstakingly making 100’s of keyframes in Video Pan/Crop?

    There’s a good shake effect in the Sapphire plugins suite from Boris FX (called S_Shake). There you’d have to set the frequency pretty low and the amplitude would be up to you. You can customize how much it shakes on each axis as well as rotation amount.

    However, if we’re sticking with native Vegas Pro, then it’s just keyframes. Though you’d need a fraction of the amount you’ve mentioned. Make one cycle that you’re happy with and then copy and paste those keyframes later on. I’d also recommend you change their interpolation.

    Technically you could also motion track some other footage that’s filmed with a handheld and then transfer that motion to your clip. Not the most convenient process, but probably would look fine.

    Also I’m pretty sure that Vegas Effects has a “Shake” effect with plenty of controls, though I haven’t used it myself.
