      Easiest way is to create the circle in a paint program and save it with a transparent background — as a .png or .gif file.

      Bring it into Vegas and put it on a line of its own, above your video. Then pull down the opacity envelope on that line to adjust the transparency.

      Hi Jack,

       I am trying to do the same as your instruction above, but when added the .gif into the timeline in sony vegas, my resolution downgrade to match the gif res (loose quality). Is there a setting to set so my current project resolution won't change?
