Ok, I'm not seeing anything odd in any of these images. It's best to use the tools to perform their desired task:

1. Pan/Crop - affects the one event - designed to crop an image and allow panning across the image. In this case, you would not be using Pan/Crop.

2. Track Motion - affects the entire track - designed to allow you to resize and position the image as needed. You would use this to make the image smaller and then position the image where desired.

3. PIP Effect - could affect either the one event or the entire track depending on where it is added - the image in the first post looks correct. The "outline" of the PIP effect will match the project output shape - not the image shape. You can still use it to resize and position the image, though.

@beaverbrook Hi, if I do this in the picture, right click - Set Default Track Properties with Crop applied on the track, when I open a new project Crop is already applied, Tick Restore Original Defaults to get rid of that Crop FX

So that was not the default setting for a videotrackI and that was what I asked to do.

And how does it go if you start a new project after set in the menu View/Window Layouts to the Default Layout?

I'm not seeing that at using the default lay-out.


@j-v This is what you wrote, the second comment could/was easily be connected to the first comment, so really no that isn't what you said, View - Window Layouts - Default layout does not reset the track properties, you have to do as i was showing go into the track, right click and choose Restore Orig defaults. ,

@j-v, you added the crop effect to the track. To remove that, just remove the crop effect from the track.

Sorry for my ambiguity, but I showed a copy of the OP's screenshot. Because I always strictly reserve the crop function for an Event, like the track motion for a Track and use the PIP effect as an extra, I found it strange that someone on a new track uses the crop function by default. 
It's not all that important so I won't get into it anymore.

Do I have to do a reset?

No, but it might help - https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/faq-how-can-i-reset-vegas-pro-to-default-settings--104646/

I followed the procedure and started a new project, but it still adds the crop FX to every video track by default.

I also followed the procedure to "Restore Original Defaults" that someone else suggested, but the forum wouldn't let me respond to his post.

There are many posts I want to respond to, but the forum won't let me because it doesn't show me a "save changes" button. *sigh*

So I will post yet another answer to a separate comment here as well...

Deleting the "crop" fixes the problem. I could not delete the crop FX before, but now I can. Perhaps it's because I followed some of the suggestions to reset Vegas. I think I can delete the crop now, because it is showing me a window for the FX, rather than a section (where I couldn't delete the crop). I guess that's a bug. When I add "Picture In Picture" it still puts a rectangle around my square picture asset. It seems to be that the rectangle is proportional to the aspect ratio of the video itself. Perhaps this is a default. I suppose there might be a good reason for it. Because it is after all a new "video" track which, I suppose SHOULD be proportional to the project aspect ratio. I am going to consider this solved.

@beaverbrook, add a video track, delete the "Crop" effect, and then right-click a blank area on the track header and choose "Set Default Track Properties...". In that window make sure that "Track FX" is checked (they all should be by default.)
