I am using Boris FX9.2 with Vegas 8.0. Project is HDV 1080. I have a transition on the timeline which flys in video 2 from video 1. Video 1 is a jpeg image of a map with a fat red route line drawn on it (Done in photoshop). As soon as the 1.08 transition starts the red line diaappears. Otherwise the transition acts normally. I've done this with several pairs of videos with same result. Anyone have a clue what causes this? I'm stumped.

Hi Jim,

If you send us a copy of the project we'll take a look at it to see if we can understand what is going on.

If you send the project to me at I'll forward it on to one of the Vegas experts here to see if they understand the problem and can offer a solution.

Hi Peter,

Thanks. I think I figured out what's happening. I copied the original transition as a preset in Vegas. When I layed it down as a subsequent transition V! to V2 it shows these in the two tracks as V! and V2. However, when I look in the "Face" setting for event V1 it has carried the still image from the original transition (doesn't recognize it as video in the timeline). Changing the "Face from still to V1 solves the problem. I guess it is a quirk in Vegas.
