Blured Title Effect in Vegas

Postby Chris B » Sun Oct 08, 2017 4:30 am

I've been playing with another title effect based on an image I saw on a website. Created in Vegas Pro 12 - I'll start a discussion thread in the Vegas section about technique.

The background is keyframed animation applied to a Media Generator. Looks pretty simple really.

Blurred title over video

Postby Chris B » Sun Oct 08, 2017 10:25 am

So - I put together a small title effect using Vegas. The background - as Steve correctly pointed out - is simply generated media. It's there to provide something - as a background - rather than as the point of the title. My timeline is as follows:

So - the tracks have the following uses:
Track 1 is the title text.
Track 2 is the white box outline (separate track to allow separate animation).
Track 3 is the blurred background to the box. I'm using a Mask to restrict the blur to the box.
Track 4 - is the video that we want the title over.

My issue with it is that the to blur the background I think I need to make a copy of the video track to put the blur on as I only want to blur a section of the video. However having to make a copy (especially if I apply any subsequent edits/effects the the original) seems clunky. Is there a better way to do this? I tried with track grouping but couldn't make it work...

For clarity's sake, I've combined these two separate threads into one topic.

That said, I think the way you're doing it is the simplest way to do it, Chris.
