Use Transitions in Sony Vegas Pro

Edited by Feels, Zack, Eng

Hello and welcome to this Sony Vegas tutorial on VisiHow. This tutorial will be about transitions in Sony Vegas Pro. Transitions can take a simple fade-in from one photo or video to another, and add a little bit of variation.

Steps

  1. 1
    First you want to drag the two pieces of media down into the timeline
    .
    This can be two videos, two photos or a photo and a video.

    Fade them into one another by dragging the second photo or video into the first one
    .
    In this example, it displays a number that says "0:15." That means that there are 15 frames between the first photo and the second photo, which is half a second if you are going at 30 frames per second. Now if we play that, it is a simple fade-out and fade-in.

    To add variations, click on "Transitions." There are a lot of selections
    .
    For now, go to "Split." In the samples, it will show the letter "A" to represent the first photo or video and the letter "B" to represent the second photo or video.

  4. 4
    Click and hold one of the transition options and drag it down into the timeline where the two media files are fading into one another
    .
    Release the click to place the transition there. This will open a "Video Event FX" window which has a bunch of different options on it. Every single transition has a different version of this window. I recommend keeping it at the normal settings unless you already know what to do.

  5. 5
    You can make the transition longer or shorter if you want by finding the edge of the transition and dragging it along
    .
    This can be done on both sides. The transition will still do the same things, but it will just lengthen it out over a longer period of time (or shorten it). Play around with it and see what transitions you like best.
