Q: Why can't I get the Track Motion Tool to work properly in Sony Vegas?

Answer: If you are having problems with the Track Motion Tool it will be because of two thing.

Number 1:
Make sure you press on top of "Position" which is the label at bottom of window on left hand side.
If you have Shadow or Glow high-lighted instead, then you wont be able to control the Track Motion window properly.

track-motion-tool

Number 2:
All the ICON settings running along the top and the settings running down the side, need to be in precise combinations to achieve particular effects.

This information applies to all versions of Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum and Sony Vegas Pro.

      Vegas Pro 15 now allows you to edit what buttons you want to see.
      Press the "hamburger" button [3x horizontal lines].
      Go to last option to edit what you see.
