How do I make simple object highlights in instructional video's
I was just hoping that someone could help me out here.
In my daily life I do work as an ERP trainer in a chemical company, and the people which we need to train is quite high and worldwide. So we decided to create some instructional video's on how to use our ERP system.
The things that we need to do is quite simple. Record a video of what I am doing on my screen, afterwards record some audio which I add on to the video, make some cuts and edits so the voice over is aligned with the video. add some transitions here and there and almost done.
An additional thing that I need to do is, once my voice recording is talking about a specific subject in the video, I do need to add in a "highlight' lets say, which is just a simple square without any padding over a specific part of my video and let it fade in and out on the right time.
Is there an easy way to do this, like just drawing a square on my videoframe and make it fade in and fade out?
I do not have much experience in video editing so that is how I did end up on the forum here.
I used to create these video's with Kdenlive but i realized that this video editing software is quite clunky and it takes alot of time to create these edits.
I was looking for another program and I did end up with Hitfilm Express which I would like to give a try, as it does look much more user friendly to use.
I don't have much experience with HF express, just watched this tutorial video so far: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y01ZEt5xmsM
But I would like to know if the functionality that I need is supported by HF, before I dive deeper into it
Feedback is greatly appreciated, thanks!
