How to make video clips float like pieces of paper onto a table?

This can be done with Satish’s 3D LE PluginPac. If all the clips you want to use are the same length it becomes quite easy. Just make the first one float down the bottom and then use Paste Event Attributes to copy the float to the other clips on other tracks. Here is a step by step once you add 3D LE to the clip:

  1. Make the clip smaller by adjusting the Scale X/Y (I used 0.40)
  2. Use Rotate X in a negative direction to tilt the clip back in space (I used -50)
  3. Use Rotate Z to tilt the clip in the direction of its first downward movement. (I used -25)
  4. Use Position X in the negative to fly the clip off the left side of the screen.
  5. Create a new keyframe and move Position X positive to fly the clip to the right side of the screen
  6. Use Rotate Z in the positive to change its direction for the float back to the left (I used +25) (optionally adjust Position Y along the way to make the video clip fall faster)
  7. Create a new keyframe and move Position X negative to fly the clip back to the left.
  8. Use Rotate Z in the negative to change its direction for the float back to the right (I used -25) (optionally adjust Position Y along the way to make the video clip fall faster)
  9. Repeat steps 5 thru 8 until you have floated the clip to the bottom of the screen.

You can see how by keyframing Position X and Rotate Z it is very easy to float the clip to the bottom of the screen. Just use Copy and Paste Event Attributes on the next clip to give it the same float. Now stagger these clips on multiple tracks and they will all float to the bottom of the screen. Adjust the last keyframe so that it ends just above the last one my adjusting Position Y for a nice stacking effect. Also a slight adjustment on Rotate Y (positive on some and negative on others) on the last keyframe will make the pile look messy and more natural. Here is the Vegas 4 FloatingPages.veg file for this effect.
