Sorry...dont think II explained that well. I just got back into Videography after a few years...
I just want to be able to see my work in the preview window as I do it...is this possible. Like if I add a shadow..want to be able to see what looks best instead of playing timeline each and every time.
I watched some videos online and theirs showed their previews! Not sure what Im doing..

Yes it is because Vegas users do this every day.
Any changes I make to anything on my timeline (adding an effect, shadow to text, etc.) are instantly shown in the preview window so I'm not sure why you can't see it.
The Split-Screen View button in the Video Preview window selected to create a split-screen preview that bypasses all video effects (track effects, event effects, media effects, and video output effects) without removing them from your project?
