Hello, I am looking to do a oval spot shadow of an sports play and was looking at the best way to do it. I have been trying to figure it out on my own but I have now come to the forum. I want to highlight something like that with the goal post. Thanks for the help.
Freeze the video at the appropriate place using Time Remapping.
Duplicate the layer.
On the upper layer, make an oval mask.
Using the Levels effect, darken the lower layer and animate scale & position on the upper layer
Thanks Dave. You have gotten rid a massive headache. Thanks again.
