How to conceal or highlight parts of your video

This article is a copy of this user guide page: user guide page 

Using the Highlight and Conceal tool, you can control the focus in the frame, and blur or darken parts of the video.

PLEASE NOTE that you can not conceal a rapidly moving object, conceal option only allows you to blur out a fixed area, therefore, the object should be positioned directly in that area, otherwise you won't be able to conceal it.

Step 1: On the Timeline, select the clip that you want to edit.
 
Step 2: On the left sidebar, click the More button and select Highlight and Conceal from the pop-up list. The tool's options will open, and a frame will appear in the player.
Tip: If you don't see Highlight and Conceal in the pop-up list, the Highlight and Conceal button should be located right above the More button.
 
 
Step 3: In the Highlight and Conceal tool options, select a mode that suits your needs:
 
 
  • Conceal — blurs or darkens the area inside the frame.
  • Highlight — blurs or darkens the area outside the frame, drawing attention to the object within the frame. 
                                                                   
  •  Outline — like 'Highlight' mode, the area outside the frame is blurred or darkened, and the frame itself is outlined.
  •  Soft focus — the edges of the frame are much softer than other modes, simulating a camera's focus.
                                                                   
 
Step 4: Choose how you want to highlight or conceal the object: using a rectangle or an ellipse, by blurring or darkening. Set the Opacity level to change the effect intensity.
 
 
Step 5: In the player, move the frame over the object that you want to highlight or conceal.
 
 
Step 6: On the Tools tab, click Apply to accept the changes.
