If you find that you have an AVI or a MKV or something that vegas refuses to properly open, you can re encode it with handbrake into MP4, which it will be able to open.

I don't even know how the hell you can even get .mkv files into a video editor.

I tried converting a .wav file to Vegas to start editing it, and only the sound came up. How do I convert videos to Vegas with both picture and sound?

.wav is an audio file derpderp

Unless you typoed .wmv, then it would help if you would say that what converter are you using.

Hello everyone, I've been pooping for just a few days using the dreaded WMM. I've tried a couple free trials of more complex programs but I still can't find out how to do:

Clip reversal

Sound fluctuation (where the pitch rises and falls) [see 2:48] :

Any free editing programs, that include the above effects, and can do a wide range of things? Any help greatly appreciated.

It's been proved now and again that WMM can produce top-quality poops. You won't be able to do any fancy masking or whatever, but you don't need that to make a sammich.

For reversing, you just cut the desired segment into the smallest bits you can, and put them in reversed order, one by one. It looks and sounds way cooler than the "perfect" Vegas reverse, too.

I'm definitely inclined to agree--I'll go as far as saying you can make an entertaining poop using even only stock wmm, no FXArchive stuff. I mean, repeats, stutters, horizontal flipping--that's the kind of stuff I love and you can do that on Movie Maker right out of the box. It's not everybody's cup of tea--I know for my part it's slow and crashes like a sonuvagun all the time, but when you look at the free alternatives it's easily the cream of the crop.

I use Adobe Premiere Elements 9. How would I insert a picture over someone's head and make it move in sync with the video?

Make sure it's an image surrounded by a white background if you want, say, a cutout from a larger image. Use Motion Tracking to track the head, attach the image to the box around the head, and use the "RGB Difference Key" to get rid of the white background.

It doesn't always track moving objects right, so if it doesn't track the head correctly, right-click on whatever random tracking box it shows and delete it. Then you can crop a box around the head and track it again.

Sorry if this is confusing.

I've been having a series of issues with rendering as of late:

Whenever I render a video in WMV, it ends up taking an incredibly long time for it to finish, even if it's 30 seconds, plus the video ends up looking like crap. Now, if I render it in AVI, it takes much less time, but the video ends up taking alot of space.

I've been rendering videos in mp4 as of late, and the videos turn out fine, but if I try to render it in widescreen, the video quality winds up very crappy.

To sum it up, what do I do so I can have a good quality render in widescreen?

Have you tried MPEG-2? It's what I use.

Thanks, but still, what is the effect that makes the pitch fluctuate? I tried Pitch Shift and Flange/Wah-Wah but it still doesn't seem to be the same.
