Hi all, I spent hours online looking for a tutorial that shows how to feather a video's edge. For example, I imported a video clip on the cs6 timeline. I want to create a circle vignette around the video. If I select the video and use the Eraser tool to feather around the video, it only applies the effect on 1 frame when I advance the timeline. Is there any way to use the Eraser tool on a video and apply
the effect to ALL frames? Thanks, Lou
I create a "vignette" by applying a Layer Mask to the Images Layer (if it is Background, just change it to a "regular" Layer). I create that Layer Mask with the Elliptical Marquee Tool (can be constrained to a circle), with the Feather, that I want.
That will create the vignette on the chosen Image Layer, and if there is nothing below that, it will be over Transparent.
If I wish to have that Image vignetted over, say white, I will add a Color Adjustment (set to white), below it.
PS - that method has an advantage of being non-destructive.
