Because I actually haven’t seen a tutorial on this that’s specifically for Sony Vegas, I’ve created a tutorial showing how to recreate the transporter effect from the original Star Trek series.
I’m posting it here because in the past several months I’ve seen comments made on several websites (Perhaps I should have bookmarked ’em but who knew then that I’d make this?) where people were asking about how to do this effect in Sony Vegas.
Thankfully the neighbor that I call “Mr. Mmtb” (More Money Than Brains) doesn’t read blogs OR spend time on YouTube. Otherwise posting this online would be a sure fire way to have him decide that he wants to make a movie and have me do the visual effects for him and I am not a hamster, no way am I going to have him in his ever-present Nascar jacket standing over me asking eighty zillion stupid questions while I’m trying to get something done.
I’m not exaggerating either. He gets these “brilliant” ideas and then proceeds to micro-manage them (and the people he’s hired) to death. As much as I’d love to make a movie (several in fact!), there’s just no way that I’d do so if HE were the director.
Anyway, enough of me rambling about him… on to the tutorial….
