Adding client's logo in lower corner
on May 14, 2015 at 5:54:32 pm

I have tried to size down and add my client's logo in the bottom right or left of frame with the following problems that I hope the folks here will know how to fix with ease:

1. the file is labelled as a vector-based CMYK tif at 720 kb. I cant open it in my old Photoshop to change it to rgb. I'm not sure I need to --It does work in a test render.

2. The problem with the file is that it has a white BG, and since I cant open it in PS, I can't change that. Can Vegas lose the white BG in the file or change it to transparent? Is this even the right file type?

3.I simply imported the file into a video track and using the pan/crop tool, made it as small as I could and as low as I could in the frame. Pixellation resulted which I partially fixed with Sony Sharpen I'm hoping there is a better way.

4. The final issue is placement: the pan/crop tool cant put it as low in the frame as I'd like. It stops short no matter how big I make the event field.


So, basically I need to make it sharper, smaller, and lower in the frame with a transparent background.

Thanks so much for your help!

1. I don't believe a tif can be vector based, tif is an image map file. Maybe get a copy of the illustrator or whatever they created it iN, or ask for a copy in PNG format with alpha. You need the alpha layer to mask the background. A photo shop file with layers would work too.

2-4. Do resize in photoshop, and resize canvas to match your project size. Get image close to where you want it in PS, the pan crop to fine tune location. Pan crop needs to be set to 16x9, or match your project aspect ratio, in order to move image any location you want.

Thanks, Aaron. That should help a lot. Will this method also create a sharp image for the graphics?

You should do your positioning with Track Motion instead of Pan/Crop. Track Motion will allow you to make it as small as you want and place it anywhere you want. You can even spin it in 3D space.

I agree with trying to get a PNG version without the white background. Otherwise you could use Chroma Key to mask out the white as long as there is no white in the logo.
