Visually annotating video

  • I have some video footage of a person who is performing a task, nothing out of the ordinary - they are in a workshop operating a hand tool.

    I would like to visually highlight the path that the tool follows, so that the viewer will have their attention drawn to, and a permanent record made in real time, of the path that the end of the tool describes as it is operated.

    Imagine that you are stirring something in a bowl, in that case I'd like a line to follow the end of the spoon, showing the track that the tip follows during the action of stirring.

    Does that make sense?

    Needless to say I have no idea how to accomplish this.

  • It sounds like you are looking for someone who is skilled in Adobe After Effects - especially with the Motion Tracking function.
