I recently saw this page: https://hacks.mozilla.org/2014/08/building-interactive-html5-videos/ Basically it uses the track element within the video element to make clickable "skip points" in the video. Javascript and html5 (with video) are pretty much amazing these days and with a little bit of experimentation I am sure you can get what you want. (Like on ...

Practically you can't do this. The best you can probably do is make it more shaky and grainy. You could also drop the resolution to make it look like it had been digitally zoomed in. The reason you can't practically do it is because of perspective. When you shoot video from close up, the angle of view is much closer. A small difference in distance to ...

When you shoot from further away you use a "longer" lens, in other words a lens with a longer focal length. This has a few effects, that you'll have to fake to make it look real. First, the perspective tends to get flattened with long lenses. You've probably seen this in the classic cinema trope of a long shot of a crowd walking along a footpath, where ...

There are many different ways to accomplish this. You will have to pick an animation software like Adobe After Effects. There are many different 2D animation programs, all of which do certain things better and other things worse than the alternatives. Which you pick depends on your preferences and what you want to accomplish in detail. I would recommend ...

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 ...

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 ...

It was my own fault -- when I had exported it, I didn't make sure to export it in full resolution because since it already was, I thought that step was automatic.
