Stock footage for use with a green screen?

Does anyone sell stock footage for use with a green screen? I figure
there’d be one of a car chase, perhaps skiing, speedboat, a corridor
going past, a building being abseiled etc.. It’d be nice to play
around with green screen at home (even Pinnacle Studio handles it),
and then I could put some half decent backgrounds in.

Frame sizes Vegas

In Vegas Movie Studio, I’m pretty much lost trying to control the frame
size. What I see in the preview isn’t what renders. I’ve set project
properties to 640×378 and custom rendering settings… thought I had it
before but I’m confused now.

Labels

In this age, there is a lot of focus on the importance of "getting
organized." There are even professional organizers for hire! Labels
are a huge presence in the field of organization, because they enable
everything to be tagged and put in its place. From birthday party
invitations to mass market mailings to identifying file folders,
consumers frequently employ labels in their everyday lives. Labels are
a convenient and simple way to increase organization in business and
home settings.

By using the templates provided on word processing programs, making
personal labels has become fairly easy and much less time consuming
than writing them by hand. There are several name brand labels and
many generic store brands that work with the same templates. Labels
are available in several different shapes and sizes and in color,
white, or clear. Some are permanent and others are removable. They are
tailor-made for optimum print quality on either Inkjet or Laser
printers. Labels are available for almost any need that the consumer
may have.

For larger projects and for transferring data from a mailing list in
spreadsheet format to a label template, many people use Mail Merge, a
feature in Microsoft Word that uploads a list of names and addresses
and reformats it into easy-to-print labels. Even if only one typed
label is needed, label companies now sell detachable labels that can
be printed one
