Image over video

Hi there! I've been messing around in Vegas, seeing what it can do, and I'm having some problems with overlaying an image over my video. I created a new video track, added the image to it, and made sure that the image is in the right place on the screen at the right size, and appears where it needs to. However, instead of the image being overlayed on top of the video, it has instead replaced it. The entire video track (~8 mins) is just black, with the image appearing in the top corner as expected about half way through, and staying for about a minute as desired.
How do I tell Vegas 11 that I still want the video to be visible around the image?
Is this image a png and is the black part alpha transparent? If so, you must tell Vegas in the image properties that it has an alpha channel. Right click on the image and select properties, you'll find it.
