Crop small parts of the video
on Nov 16, 2015 at 11:23:35 am

Hello guys, I got a question how to crop small parts of the video that I wanted and I can move it freely. (Like I can move it to very right or very left without losing the parts of the video.)

Like this

However what I can do is this one only

I cannot move it to very left as it will see other parts of the video. I hope you know what I mean.

Just tell me how to do like the first picture there from the full video and cut small parts then can move freely
of that small parts video.

Thank you so much!

Use Pan/Crop to crop the video and use Track Motion to move it into place.

There is also a Mask feature there you can use, for further precision!

Good point. If you have Vegas Pro you can use the Mask but Movie Studio does not support masks so Pan/Crop + Track Motion will work on both.

If you of have Vegas Pro, here is a tutorial on my web site that shows you how to use a Mask to do the same thing:

Thank you so much now I finally can continue my video, but can I ask twice question in one post? I hope can.

But I can't figured this out, i wanna make my video end with linear wipe effect, but can I color the line?

In the meantime it can change the video but with colored line wipe effect. Can I really do that in sony vegas?


Like this -

And line effect in sony vegas does not have any option to color the line..

How do I do that? A colored line wipe effect..

In Vegas Pro V10, go to the Transitions tab and select Push In Right, Yellow Border. Once you've put this transition onto the two events, you can change the color of the border. You can also control which direction the "wipe" moves, how thick the line is and whether it's sharply defined or has the edge feathered.

That seems okay but any way for linear one?

Not natively in Vegas Pro. You would have to create the line with Generated Media and keyframe it to follow the linear wipe.

Boris Continuum Complete has BCC Linear Wipe which has a border parameter but you would have to buy BCC to get it.

The link you provide wants to install some sort of "video player", which my anti-virus software says is UNSAFE. For that reason, unable to see what you are trying to accomplish. Not sure what you mean by "... but any way for linear one". The PUSH video effect would do what I think you are trying to accomplish. Did you try it at all? In the video effect dialog box, if you select the Push off previous image checkbox, the original picture will be "pushed" off the screen by the new incoming image (with a line between the two that you can control the color and width of). If you don't select the Push off previous image checkbox, the original picture will "slide over" the existing picture. See the screen shot of the wipe in progress below.

I believe what he wants is a Linear Wipe not a Push.

Vegas does have Linear Wipe but it's under Transitions!

I believe I already said this. Boris Continuum Complete has a BCC Linear Wipe that allows for a colored line.

Yes, but it doesn't have any way to add a colored line at the edge like Push does which is why Andrew recommended the Push but it's a completely different look.

But John, if you uncheck the "Push off previous image" checkbox in the "Push" transition, it really becomes a wipe. The new oncoming picture/video wipes over the old picture/video. At the leading edge of the "push" or "wipe" is a line whose color can be changed, along with the width and edge type (clear crisp line or feathered line edge - which gives the line a blurred look).

Momo, have you tried playing with the "Push" transition? Don't get caught up in the name, just try it.

Linear wipe and push doesn't same... I tested both of them and I prefer linear more but I don't think there's away to change the line while changing the video..

But hey guys, I wanna ask one more question about the full screen x and y numbers.

Check this out,
http://postimg.org/image/ff1yfpifx/

And what I've done,
http://postimg.org/image/cz051v0d9/

I wanna ask you guys the full size screen x and y because as you can see what I did the screen was not arrange very well. Left's screen too thin and right's one too big.
Is there any way for me to arrange that? I could use the x and y and split the screen into three parts.(by using the number x and y)

http://postimg.org/image/ducokfonp/

Where to find a good position to fit three half screen very well and arranged beautifully?

Hope you guys can understand this..

After carefully reviewing the difference between the Sony Vegas Transitions Linear Wipe and Push, I do see a slight difference. You CAN get what you want with Vegas (a linear wipe with a colored vertical bar in your choice of color and width, delineating the two video events), but you need to add in one additional track above the track with the two pictures that are being transitioned. This additional track if just a Generated Media Solid Color, that has been modified in size by using Track Motion to create the vertical "bar". I have included two sample picture files, "VidOrPic1" and "VidOrPic2" along with a quickie Vegas 10 Pro file showing how to accomplish the linear wipe with a vertical bar (color and width your choice). Hope this helps you.

2 media files used in Vegas file below:
9478_vidorpic1.jpg.zip
9479_vidorpic2.jpg.zip

Vegas Pro 10 file:
9480_pic2wipespic1offver2.veg.zip

As far as the split or tri screen layout, you are on the right track with working with the x and y values for each piece of media. As an example, if you are making a video that's NTSC DV Widescreen (720 x 480), each picture or video event should be made 1/3 of 720 pixels in width (720 / 3 = 240). I believe you will have to crop each of the three images to get events that are then 240 wide by 480 pixels tall. If you keep the aspect ratio, when you crop a video event to 240 wide, it will also crop the height to (480 / 3 = 160), which I believe you do not want. It will take some playing around with the cropping of the video events, then organizing and sizing them using Track Motion to get what you want, but it CAN be done.

Only with Vegas 10 can do this?

I only got Vegas 11, can Vegas 11 do this? I can't open the file..

By the way the 3 split screen I need to move track motion's x and y or Event Pan/Crop's x and y? I'm confuse

Vegas is backwards compatible, meaning you should be able to open any previous version of Vegas (i.e. your Vegas 11 should open a Vegas 10 file). It's not forward compatible, meaning you couldn't open a Vegas 11 file with Vegas 10.

I just open it and thank you so much it works!!

And can you show me the sample of 3 split screen in 1600 x 900 ones?

[Momo Detouba] "And can you show me the sample of 3 split screen in 1600 x 900 ones?"
You want each crop to be 533x900. The last one can be 534 because 1600 doesn't divide evenly by 3.

[Andrew Lenczycki] "But John, if you uncheck the "Push off previous image" checkbox in the "Push" transition, it really becomes a wipe."
No it doesn't. Here is the difference. Place a still image on the timeline and split it in half and make a transition on itself. Place a wipe on the transition. Play the wipe. You should see absolutely no change because the wipe from one still image to the same still image will be imperceptible. Do the same thing with a Push and check any boxes that you want.. One of the still images (or both) are going to move, because Push is not a Wipe. With a wipe, nothing moves except the wipe point.

John, I have some problem while changing the size. Every time I change width size and the height changed as well, how do I set the settings so width and height will not change together?

Yea, you have to deselect Maintain Aspect otherwise changing one dimension will adjust the other to maintain the aspect ratio. Glad you figured it out.

John, you're absolutely right. After Momo insisted that the wipe wasn't doing what he wanted, I went back and compared the wipe to the push. I'd already figured that out the slight difference, and reposted to Momo (see my post above) for how to get what he wants (a true wipe) with a vertical colored bar.
