The order should be:

  1. Media FX
  2. Event FX
  3. Track FX
  4. Parent Track FX
  5. Video Output FX

And by "Media FX" you mean the video bus?

It's an FX applied onto the media (source) level instead of the Event level. If you split an Event into many pieces and apply the FX onto the media level, the FX will affect all splitted parts of the Event. Useful e.g. for multicam projects but also just necessary for some kind of FX like the video stabilization.

What's called "video bus" or "video bus track" in some places of Vegas Pro actually means the video output bus which is (more or less) same as the preview.

I actually never knew that about the media level. Good to know. Thanks for clarifying and for the help!

I remember you mentioning parented track fx but I cant figure out to drop an effect and have it effect all those specific tracks

For the parent track you need to set the FX after the composite in the FX signal flow line on the upper Track FX window.

Big hint: Put your output levels filter on the output (Preview) buss.

I've just hit a problem with FX. I've put a couple of FX on one video track (colour correction and inverting the image), and it's doing the same to the other video track in my project. Has anyone seen this before? I'm using Movie Studio 16, build 109, on Windows 10, version 1903.

This sounds like your lower video track is made a child to the upper. Could you post a screenshot of your timeline?
