I'm putting together a historical documentary, and all I've got to work with is a number of still images. There is a panning effect I've seen with still images to make them look more interesting which is to have the image pan slowly while it's being displayed.
What is this effect called? Can I do it in Vegas Movie Studio HD?
I shoot using a Manfrotto 701 HDV fluid head. Regardless of how careful I am, every pan (slow or fast) ends with the head, on its own, twisting backwards a slight amount. It is too small to measure, perhaps less than 1/2 degree. But, when scenes are viewed on a big flat panel TV, it is clearly noticeable. I called Manfrotto tech support and they said my camera was too light. So I added 3 pounds of weight - which with the cam is about 4 1/2 pounds - and the problem persists. Tilts are also a problem but less so. Am I missing something? Perhaps I'm not holding on to the pan arm properly?

Does any body know if there is a way to make the crop tool in sony vegas pro 9 normal? it is doing everything in reverse as if you are controlling the monitor instead of the video. does anybody know if there is a way to set it so that the crop and pan tool is controlling the video, so that when you move the box left, the video doesn't go to the right?
what would be the cheapest quality way to effectively move the camera laterally in a straight line, i see relatively inexpensive dollies at B&H but will these move in a straight line if desired?
