Andrew:

Great series you have here. I appreciate your effort in putting them together. I don't have Pro12 but am working in Pro 11 and have been trying to duplicate a shape(rectangle) as is possible in Pro12. Is there a method for Pro11 or do I to duplicate all of them freehand?

Hi Ken

I'm sorry but I have only been working with Pro 12 so I don't actully know what you can and can't do it 11! You will need to see what you can manage.

Sorry not to be more help. All the best
Andrew

I have a similar issue. Did you find a fix to duplicating, copying or using saved masks?

Thank You,

Sony Vegas Pro Basics FORTY: Track Motion & 3D Track Motion
  Play Video
Track Motion has nothing to do with tracking motion but is the ability to animate a whole track which includes all the events/clips on that track. Additionally, you can animate a track in 2D & 3D giving some really cool options inside Sony Vegas Pro. However, if you also want to use Layer Dimensionality with 3D Track Motion you need to know how as there are a few extra steps. In this tutorial, Andrew Devis explains what Track Motion is, how to set it up and goes through some of the issues involved if you want to use it in conjunction with Layer Dimensionality for cool results.

Layer Dimensionality can be applied in several different ways inside of Sony Vegas Pro and is a powerful effect which can give the illusion of depth to an item and is great for PiPs (Picture in Picture) and text to help them to stand-out in your production. In this tutorial, Andrew Devis goes through the options in Layer Dimensionality showing how they can take a flat looking PiP and make it stand out quickly and simply.

Andrew goes through how to use the toggle and has a closer look at both 'Lanes' and 'Curves' as well as at the various keyframe type options.

Sony Creative Software had a fruitful NAB 2012, introducing two particularly interesting audio and video editing tools: Spectral Layers, which lets audio professionals precisely de-construct and change an audio mix, and TemplateBuilder, which maximizes creative time spent on motion graphics.
