I am very new to video editing and am using Sony Vegas Movie Studio 6.0 Platinum to become fluent with editing/producing before moving on to more professional software. I am working on a sports project right now and I need to point out or highlight a specific athlete on screen. I would prefer to add a temporary spotlight on the player while shading the rest of the video, but haven't figured out how to do this yet. As an alternative, I could also pause the video while overlaying an arrow pointing to the player, but I don't now how to do that either.
If anyone could give me any advice on how to do either, your help is appreciated.
