Davinci Resolve lite is free, and it contains an excellent motion tracker. By combining the motion tracker with a power window, and adding a color correction (to darken everything outside of the power window), you should be able to achieve the results you're after very quickly. For tutorials on Davinci Resolve, search youtube for Alexis Van Hurkman. He ...

I agree with the two previous answers: You'll need paid motion-tracking software such as After Effects. I wanted to add that in addition to tracking the X-Y position in the frame, you will most likely need to track the "rotation" of the 2 eyes as well. That is, a horizontal rectangular mask will work for the eyes of a person facing forward with his/her ...

Unfortunately, this requires motion tracking and there isn't much out there that can handle it for free. (As Jason Conrad pointed out, DaVinci Resolve Lite can.) Motion tracking is pretty elaborate because it has to use complex computer vision systems to identify objects within the image and track where they move from frame to frame. After Effects is ...

I would go with either jing ( http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html ) free or Camtasia ( http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.html ) both from Techsmith. Camtasia allow you to zoom in on part of the screen after recording but before rendering. This basically solves your problem and is great when you need to create video to a resolution that is less than the ...

You can use Lightworks (multi-plattform) for that or alternatively iMovie. Both offer either masking and or cropping. One of the most basic features in a video editor. Just watch one of the dozens of beginner tutorials for the tool that fits you the most. When you go with the cropping approach you just duplicate the video layer and crop each layer down to ...

I know only VideoReDo and SolveigMM Video Splitter, but they are not full-featured video editors. Both are not free.

Another possibility if you don't want to learn a new work flow is to use a muxer/demuxer to split the video off of your camera stream and the audio out of your recorder, figure out the offset and then join them together in a lossless clip. It is a bit more difficult to do this particular step than it would be in a good editor, but it also has the ...

Possible duplicate of: What Beginner Video Editing Software Should I Use? Though still valid on its own for requesting a specific feature set. Even though pretty much any video editor will have your requested features. I often recommend Lightworks (also available for Linux and Mac) as its free and soon to be open sourced. Here a video tutorial on how to do ...

If all you're doing is trimming the video, you may want to consider the command line tool ffmpeg. The -ss flag will allow you to set the in point for your trim. You can also set an out point on with the -t flag. For example, the following command will take "name_of_movie.mp4", trim the first 10 seconds off, copy the audio and video codecs, and output the ...

From FFmpeg Documentation – Detailed Description: ffmpeg calls the libavformat library (containing demuxers) to read input files and get packets containing encoded data from them. When there are multiple input files, ffmpeg tries to keep them synchronized by tracking lowest timestamp on any active input stream. Encoded packets are then passed ...

Yes, compositing, as it is known in the industry, involves decoding two or more assets in to video streams and them combining those streams in some way. The end result is then saved as a new file on render. There is some variation in when rendering is done though. Some software can put off rendering for a while to reduce the number of re-encodes required. ...

I don't know of anything that allows you to specify something like trimming a certain amount off in batch, but you can do all of the rest with Adobe Media Encoder. Open AME and drag all of the clips that you'd like to trim into the Queue panel. Select all of the files in the queue and click on one of the preset links: Choose a format and preset ...

Without know more about the specific codec used on the file we can't say too much. One thing you can try is transcoding it with Adobe Media Encoder to another format that you know will work in CS6

CamStudio is a well-known free screen capture software. I used it, but didn't like it. Movavi suite has screen capture and video editing features, but it's not free. To get best results, you should use quality screen capture codec, not resize your source videos, use good video converter or editing software. Adobe Premiere Pro is a professional video editor ...

In order to get a near the high quality you require, you would have to use quite a high bit rate. Unfortunately the number of pixels that the video decodes to and the actual effective resolution of a video are not the same thing. Modern video compression will make the most effective use of the data rate you set the video to use, but the more you ...
