I'm terribly sorry to trouble you all - I appreciate that there's lots of Vegas threads already, and I'm afraid that I'm just another hopelessly ignorant newbie trying to muddle my way through video editing.
I've pored over the Help files for this but I haven't been able to find any function which describes my scenario, so if anyone is able to lend a hand I would be extremely grateful.
For context: I'm trying to create a parody of the Top Gear
opening sequence (Youtube link for reference
) with Azumanga Daioh
, using Yukari's appalling driving as the link with Clarkson & Co.'s motorhead antics!
As you can see in the YouTube video linked above, a key characteristic of the opening sequence are the split frames, with several different shots sharing the same screen. However, I am having difficulty in replicating this effect in Vegas Platinum 9.0, because I can't disperse the frames across the screen, viz.
The difficultly comes from The Pan/Crop function only cutting out a window from the underlying video, whose position is fixed - so any attempt to move the frame doesn't shift the image I want, rather just rolls the window across to an irrelevant portion of the original shot, viz.
Is there any way to move not just the crop/pan frames, but the video itself, so that all of my shots of interest are dispersed in the manner of the Top Gear
Apologies for bothering you if this is a simple thing to do whose method I've overlooked - and thanks in advance for your time if it's a complicated one that requires explanation!
