Help me decide if this is feasable or 'worth it' in regard to how easy it would be. I have an image of a sleeping dog's head. I would like to put a video of the 'dream' the dog is having of playing at the dog park as a soft edged oval as an inset video over the dog's head. I'm a beginner and learning and see that an image can be cropped to leave a smaller image that can be imposed over another full frame image. The question is how to get the imposed image into a vignette that 'floats' over the background image.
Is it possible? Built-in effect? - or difficult to do?
Lots of ways to do that including making a matte and vignette in Photshop.
But using a Track Matte Effect from an oval / elipse you create in Premiere Titler is one way to explore.
Read how Track Mattes Work.
Read how to create the Title ( Circle / Oval ...what ever) and how to fill it.
A Blur may help as well.
Blend Modes may be nice to use.
Much Appreciation shooternz, I'll explore these options and see how they work. I'm most familiar with Photoshop and could make a vignette but wonder if putting a video into that would be scaleable so the vignette area would be filled with the video. I guess the best way to answer that is to start there, and see what happens when I place a video on a track that should 'show through' the matte area. Hopefully that works as Photoshop offers a lot of possibilities for types and shapes of mattes.
Okay, got one done just to see the process. Works great.
