Is there any kind of selection tool in Hitfilm?
Hello, I'm a novice self-taught editor and am still learning the surface of HitFilm despite using the program for years, and I was wondering if there was a way to mark a certain section of a video to receive specific effects, like the selection tool in Photoshop—i.e. say I have a recording of a match from a multiplayer video game with the other players' names listed at the bottom of the screen and I wish to blur them out; would there be a way to blur out that specific area and not the rest of the video?
When I come across this kind of problem I usually opt to lay a copy of the video on a higher track and then make a mask for the area I want to edit on the top video, and then simply edit the top layer accordingly. However, I wanted to inquire if there was a more streamlined way to do this, as this method feels somewhat clunky.
