Hello all !

What I want to do is simply have a circle around some text in a video.

How do I accomplish this please ?

Thx in advance for all assistance.

One way would be to download a PNG circle image via an image search and place it on track 2 (the overlay track).

Another approach...

Download a high-contrast circle.

Place your text on track one and the circle on track two.

Click on FX in the circle clip on the timeline.  When the effects editor opens click the large green + at the top-left and choose GREEN SCREEN.

Use your mouse to maneuver the color picker in the preview window to the background area.  Click.  The background should vanish.  Adjust the sliders for best presentation.

Using either method, employ the SCALE, POSITION or other effects as needed.

Hi

Another approach is to use text. Pick a font that has narrow but regular characters for the example I have used Century Gothic.  Use a simple letter O. Enlarge to fit around the text and use the effects options to Position it. If you want an oval then Use Scale to stretch the circle into an oval.  Ready-made character can be found in the wingdings font

Depending on your exact requirements you might also try the VP Speech Bubbles , Click the Green File button and choose Add Files. (Not the toolbar AddFiles!) Now select Add Images from NCH Clipart Library. and pick Speech Bubbles.
