Creating a News-Intro Part 4 - News Logo

Step 1

Step 14

Click on the upper left corner of the gradient-clip and drag it to timecode-position 00:00:00,15 (1):

 

Step 15

Select "PROJECT -> RENDER AS" to create a Quicktime file. Select a folder and a name in the output-settings. Click on Quicktime and select the "Movietools - Quicktime Alpha" template (1). If you don't created the Movietools Render-Templates for Sony Vegas before, please read here (link). Click on "Render" to create the movie.

 

Step 16

To use your created logo animation, simply import the rendered quicktime file to your project. Place it (1) on top of a video clip (2) in your timeline:

 

Step 17

Remember to activate the alpha channel of the logo-animation: Right-click the logo-animation, select "properties", choose the "media"-tab and set the alpha-channel option to "premultiplied". Thats all :)

Here is a short video-sample, how the logo-animation should look like:

Next time we'll create the final project for our news intro.
