    Hi Peter, before I start playing I want to clarify what you seem to be saying.

    ” whatever the video looks like on the preview screen is what the video will look like when rendered.”

    “Also, I’m not adding band media (footage) into Vegas “under” the text (STREAM STARTS 7PM)”

    If the STREAM STARTS is not on the Top Timeline then it will never be in front of the Band, which is what I thought you wanted?

    .” I’m rendering the time line, which contains the text part and other video parts, to make a single video to – layer up behind us ????- ( on the green screen during a live stream”)

    I am a bit confused now. 🙂

    Looking at your video, I see the 3 people in the band,,,, Is the Light show behind you on another layer under you final render?

    Is the Band in a room somewhere and then you want the light display behind you to pretend you are in a large theatre?

    Maybe i missed the point,,

    Run it by me one more time bit by bit

    G’day John. I’ll see if I can explain what is happening better. The video you watched is a live stream video to Facebook. We also live stream to other platforms. The live stream is a ‘post’. It’s literally ‘live’. What you are watching is the live stream that is saved on Facebook, that I have downloaded from Facebook using Clipgrab. The video behind us is the one I make up in Vegas. It is layered up behind us in OBS on green screen. People watching the stream live see it as you can in my last message. As you can see I can layer the Video I construct in Vegas behind us. If I put that video as the first layer in OBS you wouldn’t be able to see us. I’m trying to find out if I can create the part of the video that contains the text with a transparent surround ( the black rectangle that surrounds the text) so when I use it as the first layer all you can see is the text, and because the black rectangle (the canvas) is transparent you will be able to see us behind it.

    Hi Peter

    AK, making a bit more sense to me now,,,

    Attached is a “Logo Transparant.png” that I made from your Provided original Logo download.

    This Transparent.png is just the Logo and I have removed all the Black background, so In theory anything behind it will show.

    If you open it in a Picture display app is shows a white background simply because that’s how that sort of program shows it.

    In Vegas ONLY the word will show as the black has now been removed

    In this little Demo,( YouTube ) I have used your Provided Logo download and removed the Background in Photoshop as a PNG file.

    The first part of the video is your Logo (First Timeline and underneath it (Second Timeline ) is a mock stage which you wont see to start with but when the Logo Transparent.png file is shown you can see the stage behind it.

    Another try – YouTube

    So, use the Logo Transparent file It is just the logo with the black already removed and the surround it transparent

    Let me know,, I am enjoying this 🙂



    PS, I also used to be in a Rock Group many years ago,,,,

    Burns short scale Guitar and Vox Amp Top Boost 🙂

    All good thanks. It’s getting close to stream night, (tomorrow night) so I’ll leave the video the way it was for now behind us. I gather I need photoshop to remove the black background, I can’t do what I want in Vegas alone. We are streaming to YouTube and Facebook amongst other 7pm tomorrow night AEST if you are interested.

    Hi Peter, I have already removed the Background from the Logo on the previously attached file so it is already done. It is just showing white as that’s how the WEB displays it.

    If you download that Logo Image then you have what you need.

    As I mentioned before, in Vegas you can Chroma Key the Black are to make it disappear.

    Hope you have luck
