Hi, I'm running Premiere Elements 7.
Is it possible to erase parts of a video frame, without using keying?
The video I have has a colour mixture that won't lend itself to simple keying, or cropping, so I'd like to make certain areas transparent manually.
It would be even better to have a soft border on this, similar to what can be done in Photoshop to a still image with the eraser tool.
Can anyone help with this?
The best way to do this is with the Track Matte or one of the Garbabe Mattes.
Yes, they're keying effects -- but what you're describing is keying, by definition.
