I am trying to create a sports (Football) highlight video. I want to use motion tracking to highlight/identify a particular player. There appears to be too much action/movement for me to track a single player. Is there some other way to accomplish my goal using Premiere Elements 8?
Unfortunately, you have posted to the Tip & Tricks sub-forum. This is a repository for articles on how to do things in PrE. Maybe Steve, our faithful MOD, will move the article for you, out to the main PrE forum, where more can see it.
One can also create a Title with a symbol, and animate that, via Keyframes, to track a moving object. You can alter the size (Motion>Scale), the position (Motion>Position) and even the rotation (Motion>Rotation), to follow.
You can also use a non-Filled circle in a Title, and Keyframe the Motion>Position, to follow your action.
