This was a learning video for me to test out some ideas using Vegas. I wasn't sure if I could put two videos (one mirrored using track motion) on the clip. I also put a white to transparent gradient over the 'reflection' which seemed to work well too.
My previous experience with video editors has been with Studio 9 so Vegas has been a pleasant change.
I love you animation thing and I am pretty new to vegas .
I have a friends wedding i will be working on,later this month ,It will only be stills and i would love to open with something cool like this-
please tell me you have a tutorial or you will send me one........
Thanks for all the additional comments. I hadn't even thought of doing a tutorial as I'm a noob when it comes to Vegas. I'll try to come up with some images and a description of how I created this effect over the weekend and post a link to it at my website.
I can’t spell either. I thought it was excellent! ;-)
Not sure how you did it (there is always more than one way to accomplish a task in Vegas) but I have recreated it using 3D Track Motion to position the event in the frame, duplicating that track and flipping it vertically to create the reflection, and then adding a Radial Blur, Glow, and Border to the reflection track complete the illusion. Great idea! Thanks for sharing.
I'd be happy to offer the veg file along with a description of how I did this effect (Johnnyroy was very close). As I'm not that familiar with the veg files, are there any other files I need to include? Wouldn't I need to include the image/audio files as well? Will put it together this weekend...just let me know if I need to include the seperate files as well as the veg.
I can be emailed at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If anyone may be interested, here's a link to my working 40's era jukebox I did using PS 7:
Doc, quite often a veg file is the only thing necessary as we can generally substitute our own files. Having said that (and speaking strictly for myself here), anything else you want to add (images, etc.) besides the veg file would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks very much for offering to do this.
p.s. I like your choiceof music on your jukebox :-)
