I would like to do an adaptation of this as an x-mas present with family pictures and videos in it. Before I get too deep into it I'd like to know if Vegas is capable of doing this.

I tried a quick test version and the first issue I noticed was track movement. As i move around from "picture" to "picture" on my corkboard, I noticed that the video overlays don't move with the background. Will track grouping allow me to make the same exact movements across multiple tracks?

The original creator of the movie said he did it in After Affects...

thanks in advance,
Jason

This can be done in Vegas. One way would to be to assemble a large picture in Photoshop with all of the smaller photos arranged on a cork background and then once in Vegas use the pan/zoom to move around the large photo. It would take a good knowledge of keyframing in Vegas to achieve this. For the video portions you can use video on a seprate track and track motion it into the size needed.

Can it be done? Yes.

Without a moving camera though you are going to be driving yourself insane. AE or I prefer Combustion is good for this sort of thing: anything with a moving 3D camera or object I go Combustion for some reason.

By "driving yourself insane" are you referring to the massive amount of keyframing I would need to do? If so, I think I experienced that last night.

I tried a quick test last night and quickly realized that when I pan around on the background image moving from photo to photo, all of the superimposed images want to move rather than staying anchored in one spot.

Here's an example of my poor little test video...

You've got the right idea. You have to learn how to keyframe the video out of the way as you move around the pictures. Also, there are settings for the keyframes and the way they behave. You can adjust them to move smoothly, slowly, hold, etc.

It's actually not anyone I know. This video was posted on the forum a few months ago and it inspired me to try something new...

I read this post and decided to see if I could recreate the effect. I agree with Glenn that you need to make a large photoshop file of the background to start off with. My experiment was done entirely in Vegas 5. No cameras were involved. It's actually quite a simple effect. Hope the link works, sorry the video size is so small.

http://mysite.verizon.net/res7b5yh/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/vega...

Here's how I did it:

In Photoshop, I created a 1920x1080 image of the background with all the pictures in it. I also made 2 white boxes where the video will go. I imported that image into Vegas and made it 1:30 in length. My project size is set a 1920x1080. I placed a video clip on a 2nd layer and used crop/zoom to 'shrink' it down over one of the white boxes but leaving some white border showing. I repeated this with a 2nd clip on a 3rd layer. I rendered this out uncompressed to keep the 1920x1080 resolution. Close this project.

I opened a 'new' project with a canvas size of 720x480, imported the uncompressed video clip into this project and used crop/zoom to Zoom in and appled keyframes to make the pan moves from one photo to another. Render this out at DV resolution or whatever you like and you've got yourself an effect! Hope this helps!

Harlan
