How to make present a map and the name of the village (town) in Sony Vegas Pro

Hi,
Next summer we will visit few villages in Italy...
What I am trying to do is to make a film to all the villages (towns) we will visit. For an example : Rome, an arrow will point the exact area on a map and Rome will appear in letters. Is it possible to do something like that with Sony Vegas Pro ? Thanks !!!

Really easy to do. You can use generated media to make the arrow or just use a PNG file and then use Text to label that area of the map. Place the text and arrow on a track above the map. You can even use key frames to animate them if you'd like.

Thanks, but I'm a beginner...

1-How can I make an arrow with "generated media" like John said ?
The reason is when i'm trying to use a PNG file, I found on the internet, they always have a white background. What I need is a clear background to use on a map.

2-Do you know where I can find a map of Italy and when I present Rome for example, zoom in on the city ?

Thank you so much for your help !

Do you have Adobe Photoshop?

It seems like you need access to a photo editing program that can find edges, then copy a region to a new image, which you will save as a .png. Then the map will not have the white background, but instead a transparent background. Doing this is a very common practice in photo editing.

If you don't have Photoshop, try Gimp, lots of people use it as an open source alternative to Photoshop.

Good luck!

[Eric Hebert] "1-How can I make an arrow with "generated media" like John said ? "
Let's say you want a red arrow... drop a piece of Generated Media Solid Color on the timeline, make it red, open up Pan/Crop, select the MASK tool and draw an arrow (or any other shape for that matter).

Try Google maps. Take screen shots at different zoom levels and use Pan/Crop in Vegas to zoom into them.

Hi;

These might give you some ideas regarding Google Maps/ Google Earth.

A fly-in (most of the video is probably boring but watch the first part for the fly-in)






A moving-map car to accompany a time-lapse drive (map starts at about 0:37 , but the first part is not horrible, so just watch)
