OK. I then found that envelopes can be hidden. The help is vague....select the envelope you want to hide....
When I asked to View Video Envelopes, all were ticked. I unticked the Composite choice and then re-ticked it _then_ it appeared.
I can see how to adjust the entire event's opacity, but I need to adjust it over time, as it plays through.
I have watched a couple of videos and they say that you right click the track header and ask to insert an envelope, then choose Composite. This apparently should cause a purple line to appear at the top of the track's events, and that this can have points added to it, so that you can then do enveloping.
However when I tried it, even though I was able to locate and set the Composite Envelope switch, although the existing opacity line showed still, there is no purple line, and I cannot add locations along a line to alter opacity over the play time of the clip.
I have tried double-clicking and right-clicking the default opacity line.
If I read Vegas MS 16 help, it does not mention the ability to create opacity envelopes, that I can find.
Is there a way to do this in 16 MS?
Any help appreciated.

Hey there. The last version of MS I used was 10 had composite envelopes so I'm sure 16 does as well. To insert a composite envelope right click on the track you want it on, I disable headers but it should work on the track on the main body of the media. From here you will have a line going down the center of the track, you can create points and adjust them up or down, with 2 points you can create a gradual opacity reduction.
