I am an amateur video editor, with experience using Pinnacle products, but recently moved to Sony Vegas 6.0.
I'm having a problem figuring out something with Vegas, and it's driving me crazy!
I am hoping you can help me. I am trying to composite some text to label an item in a video clip. Vegas' help simply says to drag a Sony Text (with grey checkered transparent background) over the video clip. When I do that, (I've double checked that I've used a transparent background text), the text appears with a solid black background, covering up my video. That's not what I want. The text is meant to label an item in the video, not obscure it.
I've spent a few hours trying to figure this out, and am hoping you all can point out the error in my ways.
Thanks in advance,
BTW- I'm running a Athlon 64 3200, 1 gig RAM, size 10 shoes, 256 meg ATI 9600 video card.
