Camera shake is the wobbling effect that gives videos a more dynamic, realistic look. The best way to create camera shake in Sony Vegas is with the built-in keyframes feature. This will allow you to animate the effects over time, giving your video more of an organic feel.
Step 1: Open your project in Sony Vegas Pro. If you have not created a project yet, click File and then New Project. Name your project and click OK.
Step 2: Click the Video Effects tab at the top of the screen and then click Camera Shake. This will add a new camera shake effect to your clip or movie clip, depending on how many effects are already applied to it. If you only want this effect applied to one clip, make sure it’s selected before applying it.
Step 3: Click on any part of your clip or movie clip where there is no movement or action taking place (i.e., when it’s paused). This will give you a still frame from which you can base your keyframes on later on in this tutorial.
Step 4: Now that you have established a point for creating keyframes for this effect, go back to the Video Effects tab and select Camera.
