Scroll large picture in Vegas Pro
on Jun 3, 2014 at 1:01:11 pm

When importing a large photo to Vegas Pro, it automatically fits the picture to the project screen size. I'd like the picture to remain it's original size and ratio, overlapping pass the bottom, to allow me to animate and scroll-up the photo. In other words, I want to scroll up a screen capture. Any help? Thanks.

Use pan/crop and use keyframes for animation panning around the image.

Have tried this and it did work.

My project is 720x480. I have a picture of a webpage which is 1500px tall. I want to show the image on screen as if the camera was fix and someone took the image and scroll it upward before the camera. Can you help?

Here is a Vegas 12/13 project file showing a pan.

[Jason Ed] "My project is 720x480. I have a picture of a webpage which is 1500px tall."
Open Pan/Crop and set the width to 720 and the height to 480, then right-click and select Match Output Aspect and the image should show actual size allowing you to pan around it.

[Jason Ed] "Thanks Norman. This is exactly what I'm trying to achieve. How did you get the object's exact width to fit the screen? Thanks."

In my VEG example I had a media generator at 720x1500. It does not matter what the width of your image is. You do the same thing.

You need to have the "Lock aspect ratio" button unselected. It is selected by default. It is third from the bottom, and you can just hover the mouse over it to see the tooltip pop up.

With that unchecked now you can make the width and height a different aspect ratio that the source image. You want your crop to have the same aspect as your project. You can do this visually.

Also uncheck the "size about center" button and simply drag the center bottom anchor point until you see it get to the size of your project in the preview window.

Now you have a crop at the top of the image. This is your first keyframe. Now create another keyframe at your desired time location, probably the end of the event, and move the crop to the bottom of the image.

Here is a screen shot where I did a pan from top to bottom of a digicam file which was much larger than my project at 1440x1080 4:3 square pixels. The screen shot shows the start position at the top. The second keyframe was at the bottom, and then I actually zoomed out to show the whole image. When zoomed out there were black bars on the sides since the aspect was different (much more rectangular).
