Thread: what is this video editing software?

  1. Default what is this video editing software?

    Hello
    I would like to know the name of the software that was used to create this video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TliIdoN5rKQ

    If you skip to 6:26, you will see the feature that I'm asking about.
    I want to pause a video, highlight a spot, and add text about it. And of course, the usual features like adding an intro, or credits.
    Many thanks

    This could be done in nearly any video editing software

    You could try Lightworks. Its a bit more advanced, but free. Hope it helps

    I am not sure, this feature has an own name.

    Well, I don't know about Lightworks (I used it only once). But I would probably set the speed of the video to 0 to have it pause. I then would create the desired text/image etc. and put it on over the video. Then you could darken the video along with the text/image. Put the text another time over the video at full brightness, (if you want a slight box around it, just recreate the text/image with a semi-transparent box behind it). If you want, you can also animate the darkening of the video, and highlighting of the text/image (animating the crop of the unaffected text). Render and done. You have finished the effect!
    I hope I explained it more or less understandably

    I use Avid Media Composer. But the same effect can be achieved in Adobe After Effects or Premiere Pro.

    Happy editing
