Hi all
 
Hope this is the right location for this. Using Vegas Pro 10 (VP10) and was wondering if it was possible to get multiple video footage showing in different areas of the screen.
 
Some may have seen this, for example in a program where they are showing a telephone conversation, one half of the screen shows one party and the other half of the screen shows the other party simultaneously. Or maybe showing one section of footage in the top left quarter of the screen then introducing a second in the bottom right then another bottom left and so on with each quarter switching to new footage during the sequence.
 
One final example might be footage on left of screen, beginning/end titles on right, something I've seen a lot on TV of late.
 
Any thoughts? Can it be done in VP10?
 
Thanks in advance
 
Ron

I'm not sure how similar Vegas Movie Studio is, but you can achieve this effect in the tools menu of Movie Studio.

Tools > Video > Video Event Pan/Crop...

Thanks Richard, I'll take a look at that. I'm sure there is a name for what I'm trying to do but I have no idea what it is ... if there is one of course! :) I may have been able to do a search for it that way in the help file.
 
Thanks

You might take a look at Heroglyph to do what you want.

Richard, busy day but found a short gap to try tour technique and it works, it was a rough and quick play given the time I had but a bit of playing to get things a bit more accurately positioned and I should have it cracked!
 
Barry. Thanks for your feedback. I went to the ProDAD Heroglyph site but the plugin doesn't support Vegas. Looks a good tool though and will bookmark the suite so I can take a look at the other software there.
 
Thanks Barry and Richard

Re: creating multi video windows
you don't need a plugin. 
 
you can do everything with "track motion" and "event pan / crop".
 
for an example check out this video by Mr_Hopkinson  - it was done 100% in vegas with no special plugins. 
 

See video

 
cheers

Thanks for that Tom ... love the video, talented guy when you listen to what he can do too.  Richard mentioned the "event pan / crop" and I'll have another play this evening all being well and play with "track motion" too. Learning all the time yes
 
Thanks again Tom
