It's not that hard, IMO. You just have to pay attention with what you're listening to, and what you have to sync to it.

Don't forget add "masking FAQ".
I don't even know how to use Masking. You're more then free to write it and I'll post it.

Ok here's what I wrote on "Masking"

General description:

Masking is copping a video clip and still having a part of a video masked. Please note: This only works if you Vegas 5 or 7 and the Professional versions works too.

How to use:

Click on the pan/crop button on your imported video or image, next cilck on the "mask" checkmark box then click on "Anchor creation tool" to mask out the video or image you selected.

Now you need to draw around what object but it's not like drawing in paint you need click and click again and you'll see the dots connect, when your done masking around like a shape of a box you'll see the masked video or image is still and everything else will turn black expect the video or image.

Note: When you masked only one keyframe it doesn't lock on automatically the video or image you masked you need to still mask by one keyframe at a time.

I can't even get the video to load. Whenever I drag a video file into the editor, it appears as audio only, and Vegas locks up whenever I try to preview the file. Happens with every single video file I have on my computer.

What format is the video in? If it's in AVI format, that could be the issue. If so, try converting the video to WMV format.

Yeah, it's avi. Does Vegas have problems with avi files? It's going to be a bitch to convert all my sources to wmv.

Unfortunately yes, Vegas doesn't run AVI files that well. What I would suggest is that you download Any Video Converter and batch convert your source videos to WMV format. It'll take a while (more or less depending on video length, quality, etc.) and it'll lag your computer like a bitch, but it's efficient.

Chroma Keying Tutorial:

Chroma Keying is basically masking or green screening, made easy using Vegas, please note that I use Sony Vegas 7 to edit my videos, so if you have a different version of Vegas, it may not work the same.

First, take the section of video or image that you want to Chroma Key and right click on it.

Select Video Event FX.

Then, add in the block that says "Sony Chroma Keyer".

Press the "OK" button in the top left hand corner.

A window should come up with a colour selecter and several other tools.

Move to the colour selecter and move the target box to the very bottom, so that the R, G and B all say '0'.

Now, select the eyedropper tool and click on the background that you want to greenscreen.

Scroll down the window and check the box that says "Show Mask Only".

Now, fix the Low and High Threshold adjusters until the foreground is completely white and the background is black.

Uncheck the "Show Mask Only" box and you should have a good picture. After this is done, drag in another video section and layer it underneath the chromakeyed video.

It will take a while, but once you understand it, it'll stay for a while.
