I'm an aspiring sports reporter attending the University of Florida and for an After Effects project, I want take highlights from NFL/NBA games and analyze the plays that happen. For enhancement, I want to be able to isolate specific players to show where they go.
For example: during a Cleveland Cavaliers highlight, I want to have a ring under LeBron James that follows him where he moves around the court. I've attached a sample from a video below.
I saw a really effective player highlight effect on... CBS, I think, and it's easy to pull off in AE. You start with B&W video, and highlight the player in color video with a bordered wipe.
In. AE, it goes like this : start with 2 identical video layers. Add AE's black& white effect to it. Animate a mask on the upper color layer, using Stroke on the mask. Couldn't be easier, and it really makes the player easy to spot.
