Hi,
I put together a video highlight reel of sports clips and my goal is to apply an inverted mask on one player for a few seconds and then have the rest of the clip return to normal brightness. I am able to create the mask and mask path, but my problem is the player remains highlighted throughout the entire clip. What is the best way to accomplish this? Thanks!

Cut the clip to create an edit for the duration you want the effect to be applied and only apply your inverted mask to this part of the clip. I think that should work based on what you said ... but not sure.

Hi @David5C5E ,

 

To add to @Steve Griffiths , suggestion, select the Razor tool (shortcut C), and cut the clip at the two points you want the effect.

Then go to the Effect controls panel and select the clip before and after your cuts, one at a time and remove the effect.

 

That should do it for you

 

Good luck

You could also add a disolve between the cut clips to fade the effect in and out.
