So a little context here: Was just tasked with editing the review videos of my company's merchandise and I was wondering how to do something. I've put out two videos already, which they liked for taking my first swing at it, but after talking about what revisions to make I am finally stumped.
Here is a screenshot of the project I'm working on:
This is a template in the works that I will use to more quickly put create videos. The big red rectangle is where I plan to put the actual footage of our staff testing the merchandise out in the field, and what they asked me to do was round off the border so that it doesn't look so "blocky" for just a more cleaner look.
I've tried adding a vignette just now and this is sort of I need but the problem is that has these sharp edges here: Gyazo - eebe262ce8b4815dec7e860d8b04debd.png
Basically, I'm trying to to the opposite of a vignette... Any help or tips on how to do something like this would be greatly appreciated!
You need to read up on how to use mattes and masks to feather edges. Of course overlays can only get you so far and will look whacky if the dimensions don't match or blending modes and semi-transparencies are involved.
