Vegas Pro 13 Win 7 64 bit

Is there a way to make a still photo start to move?. I have a still photo of a river flowing. Can I make it flow from the photo as if the still water began to flow.
I have movie of the same view but it goes from still photo to the movie clip. I would like to make the actual still one start to flow. Any help appreciated

Hi John

Not sure but is this what you are looking for effect wise ?

Hi John

There is more than one way to do this but here's the one I used for the example.



Track 1 is my green screen with frame.
Track 2 and 3 is the Snapshot I took at the Marker point so it will match the video when the effect starts.
Track 3 is the video.

On track 2, using Track Motion, I made the still match the Green Screen Frame. Saved it as a Preset in Track Motion and used that same preset on Tracks 3 & 4 so everything match's. This is the important part. Make sure that the end of your Still Frame event match's the point where you took the Snapshot.

Once you're done and happy with everything, render it and then bring it back to a new Vegas project and use Track Motion to Zoom In on everything.

In order to keep everything flowing and organized, make sure you name all of your Tracks and Markers.

P.S.: The more astute among you will notice that the picture above doesn't quite match the video. I didn't think of saving the original .VEG file so I had to redo it. Sigh....

Cheers !

Me again

What I posted just now was a very basic way of doing this effect. If you want to polish your clip and make it stand out, you may want to watch this tutorial by D.E. Franks from Videopia that Mike Kujbida posted recently.

I've watched this video many times. It's excellent.
