Spotlight a moving subject using an online video editor
May 21, 2013 7:36 AM   Subscribe

I'd like to use an online video editor to highlight (make brighter or draw a circle around) a specific dog in a playgroup. I have a Chromebook and work almost completely in the cloud. I feel like this shouldn't be difficult, but I'm having a heck of a time finding this feature. YouTube's "Spotlight" feature seems to be for interaction and doesn't work this way as far as I can tell. Am I missing something obvious? Recommendations for online video editors are welcome as well. I've used Pixorial and YouTube, not much luck with WeVideo. Thanks in advance!

Are you trying to motion track the dog automatically, or will you move the highlight by hand?

You can motion track pixels using either Mocha or After Effects, both overkill for this sort of job.

Response by poster: I can track the dog manually - does that help?
