Hi, i could really use some help, i know its probably simple...basically i recorded video's of bouncing balls for my animation reference, but i need to hightlight or mark things (so anything which allows me to draw or mark the video) such as max height, angles, spacing, ect ect, but i dont have a clue how to even start! I will need to learn after effects at some point, but i right now i just need to know how to do this. If someone could give me a quick set of instructions on how to go about this it would be great! Thanks.
You could use the Brush tool to paint marks on a layer.
You could draw shapes on a shape layer to overlay onto your video.
You could create a text layer to overlay onto your video.
After Effects is not an application that you can just jump into and use in a few minutes without learning the basics first. I strongly recommend starting here:
Yeah, i can see now that i cant just jump in.... Thanks for the help. Really appreciate it.
