    AE "newbie" needs help with effect - (please!)

    shiffsportsmarketing Level 1

      Hi all:

       

      I'm working on a highlight video of my daughter - she's the goalie for her H.S. Lacrosse team.  I recently bought the Creative Cloud subscription. I'm editing the video in Premiere Pro CC on an iMac - OSX 10.7.5.

       

      I'm putting together a short intro/open, and trying to add some effect to my daughter in the clip shown below.  She is running/jumping - I want to be able to isolate just her and add some sort of color effect, a glow (or even just make everything else b&w).  Obviously, my problem is with masking or roto brushing.  I've spent many hours (probably too many!) watching tutorials and reading the help articles -- and I just can't seem to get it right.  I saw a video talking about the much anticipated October update - and wondering if the new Mask Tracker will do what I need/want?

       

      Here is the clip - (my daughter is #11 - the only one wearing a helmet)

       

       

      Thanks in advance for any guidance/help/suggestions you can provide,

      Kim
