  • Hey Jimmie, I’m not seeing what you’re describing on the still frames (?)

    But, the only thing that comes to mind to tell you is that, if you want to edit in Vegas, maybe do your color grading in Premiere and re-output the results into Vegas.

  • Hey Neil, I’m not sure if inherently there’s a way to change that, but if I had to think of a workaround, could you temporarily lower the transparency of the clip you’re trying to address (click and drag from the top of the video event and pull down the line) and create some contrast so you can see it better? Or, alternatively, temporarily add a “Levels” FX and darken the clip until you get it the way you want it, then delete the FX (?)

    Joseph, if you’re on a deadline, deadlines don’t care when learning happens 😉

    Yes, you can email the clip to me (up to 25mb) at kelly@kgcreative.biz or you can use WeTransfer as well. And, let me know what is your deadline.

    Hey Joseph, how long is the clip(s) you need masked? Maybe I could just do it for you in Fusion.

    Dave, pardon this “duh” question, but did you do a manual search or let your file system do a name search? I don’t know why a project would go completely poof, but nothing surprises me anymore.

    I feel your pain, and hope you don’t have to start from scratch!

    Loralyn, I’m not here to make any money off my fellow Veggies 😉

    I think I’m misunderstanding the screen captures you posted… I don’t see any reference to the Track Motion part of the issue, unless its position at 0:00 is where it should be for all instances (?)

    Just to rule out more “duh” thinking, I don’t know if this is contributing to it, but if I were in your shoes I would adjust the crop first on the raw clip, then go on the project timeline to where the picture-in-picture needs to be and use Track Motion to position it. That will introduce a keyframe at that place in the timeline. Then, I would copy that keyframe, go to 0:00 and paste it there as well, so that both positions have the same position coordinates. And, make they keyframe type “Hold” for both. Or, you can simply make both positions “Holds” as well (instead of copy/pasting one to the other).

    Loralyn… what you describe sounds suspiciously like you DO (“might”) have a keyframe in your Track Motion timeline after all. At time 0:00 everything’s at 0x-0y-0z, and if you made your position with the picture-in-picture anywhere else but at 0:00, the track motion will definitely want to be moving from the 0-0-0 position at 0:00 to wherever you positioned the picture-in-picture on your master timeline, unless your keyframe type at 0-0-0 is set to “Hold”.

    Pardon if I just stated a big “DUH” here, but I’ve never heard of something drifting around with no keyframes.

    Hey Dave, I got SnapDownloader and it’s simple to use and I like it. It’s not free, but I recall it’s cheap and I think you can buy it outright instead of needing a subscription.

    Gary, I know you have a concern about stacking seven camera clips synced together, but I don’t think it would necessarily be the nightmare you’re concerned about, as long as you’re careful.

    I think just pay attention to making sure you have all tracks selected when you make the cuts, and keep an eagle eye on the post-ripple select/deselect.
