Highlighting player in volleyball video

May 5, 2013 3:40 PM

Tags: #adobe #video #windows_7 #premiere_elements

I am creating a video of my granddaughte's volleyball games to send to college coaches for recruiting purposes.  I need to highlight her to make it easier for the coaches to pick her out.  Can I do this in Adobe Premiere Elements 8?

    I've seen it done in Version 9.  The tools were the Track Matte Key, Motion Traking and Keyframes.  Unfortunately, I don't remember the details and have not actually tried it.

     

    This video is close, but it blurs the subject instead of highlighting the subject.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hp2TbwgIb2Q

     

    Try searching YouTube for "motion tracking premier elements" where you can see more examples.

     

    Good luck!

    At another forum where I no longer visit nor answer questions, I was heavily involved in the type of project for which you are seeking some how to advice.

     

    Probably, a major work was that of Capt. Joey and Disneyzell (Drew) who does this type of thing professionally but was willing to share his expertise with Capt. Joey and us at the time.. You can read how Drew guided Capt. Joey to a successful end product in this regard. I did inject some comments along the way but for the most part Drew took charge and did a great job. It was Capt. Joey's and Drew's success story.

    In another instance, I worked with a user and presented my views on his proposed highlighing sport figure project..

    Thanks for the follow up message.

     

    Go through the details sequentially. Maybe start to work through them in the program. Remember mini test runs before the grand projects. After you get an overview of the situation and, if you need clarification on any points (small or large), please do not hesitate to ask.

     

    We all started Premiere Elements facing that learning curve. So we have been there and done that.

     

    We all will be watching for your progress.

     

    Thanks.

    Along with the instructions by others, this article might be useful: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4575874#4575874

     

    One can also use the Lighting Effect, and adjust that to Spotlight.

     

    There are some other methods, such as adding an "arrow," or other character, and animating that to follow a player: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3702803#3702803

     

    Good luck,
