Hey Guys Newb here, trying to enhance a video for our Easter Drama. I want to add an ellipse overlaying the video on one part. The ellipse will have a photo that I would like to zoom on during the clip.I dont want the ellipse to move during this zoom. I would like to feather this ellipse with the background video. Thats all I want, haha. I just cant get that to happen for me..
