    Terex asks


      How can one crop a video clip showing only the subject's face inside an oval or circle with Adobe Premiere Elements 9, rest of the screen is blank.  Thanks!

          Weclome to the forum.


          I would do this with Track Matte Keying. You could create a Matte in Titler, with the Ellipse Tool, place it above the Video, and apply Track Matte Keying Effect, linking to the Matte on Video Track 2, or higher.


          This ARTICLE goes into more detail, though it uses a dupe of the Video Clip, to create other visual effects. The mechanics are the same, just without that dupe Video.


          Good luck,

            I might use a spotlight from the Lighting Effects video effects.
