Hey! I’m sort of a Vegas pro, at least I edit with it for my job.
The answer to your question: Which ever track is on top in the timeline, is the track that will be played.when there’s nothing on the top track,what will play is on the 2nd track or3rd track and so on.
This is fairly easy to understand, when you think about it, and it’s actually howmost video editors work (except Movie Maker, with it’s one track) but I understand your pain. Tried to learn a new software myself today. Thing was a piece of junk. It might work the way it was intended, but i can’t understand it!
So, the clip on the higher track in the timeline is the one that will show in the viewscreen. To get the one on the bottom track to play, split or trim the top clip and move it out of the way where you want the bottom one to play. You’ll probably have the top clip chopped up in little bits so that the bottom track can play often.
