PIP with Frame?

Rednroll wrote on 7/26/2019, 8:58 AM

I was playing around with some Picture-in-Picture stuff in Vegas, where I wanted to add a frame around the edge of the picture inside of the main picture to better separate the images with a distinct border between them. I was hoping to find an FX included with Vegas which would do this but couldn't find anything that really provided what I was after. It could be I just overlooked it.

Anyways here's what I have.

And here's what I was trying to achieve (I did this in Photoshop)

Which FX could I use to achieve such a thing to add a border where I could adjust the color of the border as well as the thickness?

Vegas Layer Dimensionality.. Play with the settings after you applied. Like this one.

Exactly what I was after! Thank you!

I was originally looking for something like that in the Video Plugin-In Chooser window, which didn't have the "All" plugin view like you have displayed, so I found myself basically going through each folder of plugins and trying to find something that was named frame, border, outline, etc and was coming up empty. Looks like I should be using the Video FX window instead which also has a plugin search not displayed in the Plug-in chooser window as well.

Interesting that there's different browsing views between the Video FX window and the Plug-In Chooser window view.
