    Make your ‘sand’ patch a jpg and put it on the bottom?

    Hmm, that result would also match what you originally posted – like the ‘sand.png’ is not there.

    Is there something wonky with the actual ‘sand.png’ file? But Vegas somehow has it cached for preview? Go out to explorer and see if the sand.png is viewable with something else. Recreate ‘sand.png’, maybe. I’d try to ‘replace’ that image in Project Media.

    Or put your mask back into ‘SunnyBeach’ and try ‘sand.png’ BELOW it.

    Strange.

    Hi Stephen,

    I tried to recreate your issue in my Vegas Pro 13 but could not.

    I’m curious, since your ‘sand’ png is above ‘SunnyBeach’ video, do you need the mask on ‘SunnyBeach’?

    Did you try restarting Vegas before rendering?

    Hmm, isn’t ‘720×576’ a 5:4 aspect ratio?

    So are you trying to create a 4:3 from the original 5:4 aspect ratio?

    Hi Graham,

    Where did you find the ‘Vegas User Manual’?

    I have installed Vegas Pro 19 (381) and can’t find a separate ‘User Manual’ to download. And, by the way, the in-program help still shows as Version 18.

    Hi Sarah,

    You should look at using a ‘Compressor’ effect on your background music track. How much compression you use will depend on the difference between the loud and soft sections. A compressor will ‘squash’ the loud sections down. If the soft sections are really low, you can apply what’s called ‘make up gain’ or ‘auto gain compensation’ to make them louder.

    It’s a little tricky in Vegas to see the effect a compressor has on an event because the ‘waveform’ displayed in the event does NOT reflect the applied effect, only the source.

    If you ‘render’ the compressed track to a new track, you will be able to see the result in the waveform shown on the new track.

    (Yes, this is Sony Vegas 13)

    Hi Sarah,

    I don’t have Vegas 18, but in previous versions you could stop the recording by clicking the ‘PAUSE’ instead of ‘STOP’ and the playhead would stay at the end of the event. I think hitting the ‘Enter’ (or return) key while recording would also act like clicking the ‘PAUSE’ icon.

    A non-automatic method in previous versions would be to use the Right Bracket key “]” which would jump to the end of a selected event.

    Maybe it’s still the same.

    Thanks for that link. Much to learn.

    I recreated my Fusion Composition from scratch and it all worked as expected the 2nd time.

    Aaarghh! Except, the Fusion Composition now does not show when I switch back to the ‘Edit’ page! I mean, it’s on the timeline but it does not ‘render’ in the viewer. But I can switch back to the Fusion page and preview ‘MediaOut1’ in the viewer.

    Well, I’ve been trying to dig into what was wrong with my Fusion Composition and kept monkeying around with things until I’ve found my own solution.

    I can’t really believe that what I discovered would be the ‘expected’ behavior but who knows.

    What I believe had happened was somehow several nodes got ‘locked‘ at a shorter duration than the Fusion Composition.

    After spending some time in the DR16 manual in the Fusion section and looking at my screenshot, I should have been able to ‘resize’ the events in the Keyframe editor. And some of the other objects in my comp I could resize, but not all.

    And the tail of the ‘MediaOut1’ was red because I think Fusion was saying “But you told me the duration for output was supposed to be this long”. (Try looking at a ‘Blank’ Fusion Comp with only a ‘MediaOut1’ node in the Keyframe editor.)

    In my node tree, the ‘Merge2’ node was connected to the ‘MediaOut1’. So I disconnected them. I could then resize the event in the Keyframe editor. I reconnected and I then I could still resize.

    So, if you can’t resize a duration for a node, try disconnecting some of them.

    Regards,

    –Doug
