    I have a tv in a moving shot and I need to put a video on it and have it follow the tv, but it seems the picture in picture function in vegas 17 doesn’t have the option to track. What can I do?

    Johnny, you’re right, there is no tracking for what you want. You can either step up and purchased a third party motion tracking software, such as Mocha or use what Vegas Pro 17 has and that’s opening up your “Event/Pan Crop” at the upper right side of the intended clip you want to use for your small TV clip. At the lower left section is the “Mask” check box. Once you click that, I suggest you go to YouTube and search for Vegas Pro tutorials on inserting a masked clip.

    As the previous person said, I use the Pan/Crop tool a lot in Sony Vegas Pro, and I found a tutorial video here that can help:
