Has anyone used the Rampant Studio Mattes with Vegas Pro?

Their product page is found here.

They come in ProRes format and some have mattes, and others don't.

Thank you.

To use in Vegas, I'm not going to need the ones with alpha channels, am I?

With alpha channels or without or with Mattes.
Vegas handles them all efficiently, the only thing is that Vegas's approach in achieving an effect vastly
differs from how you would achieve that same effect in after effects or another compositing software.

So whatever is done with them in say after effects, can be equally achieved within Vegas. But you may have to do
a quick search online how to handle the various methods of compositing mattes in Vegas, if you are not familiar
with it.

I downloaded some free samples, but Vegas won't allow me to place them on the timeline, any ideas? I work with other ProRes formats and Vegas sees them fine. I had to convert them and then they work.
Also, do you use them as an overlay and adjust the track opacity or use screen/mulitply etc to get the desired effect?

Thanks for your help!

Yes, i use them on "overlay and adjust the track opacity or use screen/mulitply etc", that's how its done.
And for those with mattes, you place the mattes on a track above the footage, then make the tracks Parent/Child
Composite..... Then you set the composite mode of the matte track to multiply, then add the
"Luminance mask filter" from from the Mask Generator to the same matte track, and you're done.
Or you can further tweak and fiddle with the settings to get the desired effect you seek.

I've never used their free samples, so i am wondering if the issue are with just those. As for the rest of their collection,
everything imports in Vegas quite fine for me.

Thanks Steve,

Yeah, they are 4K, I use EZ encoder and go from MOV to ProRes and then Vegas sees them fine. Keeps them in 4K too and ends up being around the same size. I don't know why they don't work. I have QT Pro and tried on 3 computers to no avail.
At least I found a work-around!!

Thanks for your input!

Best

You're welcome... Still if you already have Quicktime Pro, you can easily do your conversions with that.
