I am following John Rafrano's tutorial to a t: Match Move in Sony Vegas Pro. However whenever I drop my text track below the video track with match mover applied (at the 5:04 mark in the video tutorial) and I set the custom composting mode "MM Foreground" to source B; my text track appears but all black and I can't see the text? What am I doing wrong? I have added a screen shot for reference. Thank you

How did you create you text event? I see it's solid on your timeline. I assume it's an empty event perhaps with BCC 3D Text like in the tutorial? Does the text display correctly when not using the Match Move composite mode? How about if you substitute regular Sony Text Generate Media. Does that show correctly?

I am using an empty event with bcc extruded text. When I mute the video track with the motion tracker in custom compositing mode, the 3d text is visible.
I haven't tried sony's general text yet. I'll try it in the morning and let you know how that works. Thanks for taking the time to help John. I really appreciate it.

I added a new video track and dropped in Sony Generated text media; nothing changed. I did mess with the opacity of the mach move track and the lower track will appear but of course the match move track fades out. I added another screen shot for reference. I must be doing some thing wrong.

I see that you have Track Motion enabled on the parent track. Perhaps that is causing the problem.

If you've never done this before, I would make a new project and follow my examples exactly to prove to yourself that you are doing it correctly. Then if you want to slow down the clip, add track motion, etc. at least you will see which one is causing the problem as you add them.

Spot on John! Thanks. I had 2d shadows enabled. The moment I un-checked 2d shadows..... "ta-da!" It worked. Thank you

Ah, so it was the shadow track that we were seeing. I was wondering why the edges were soft.

Well... if you didn't post that picture I would have never seen the Track Motion icon set so in this case... a picture was worth a thousands words. ;-)

I have another question:
Will motion tracker only work if the clip that I want to track is at the beginning of the time line? I tried tracking a track later on in my video and the screen says "Outside of trim range for tracker(s)". Is there a way around this?

Use a nested project. Just start a new project and track from the beginning of the timeline, then drop that project into your main project any where you need it. It will behave like any other piece of media.

I thought that might be my only option. Thank you John.

[Rex Polanis] "I thought that might be my only option."
And a very elegant option at that! This is something we would do all the time. In After Effects is called a PreComp. In Boris FX it's called a Container. In Vegas it's called Nested Project. All of these are variations on the idea of nesting more complex edits into a single clip that then be manipulated further. It's a powerful concept and one that I use a lot.
