  1. wondering if you could put a stroke around that arrow. So it stand's out more in a video (permiere) Thanks so much for posting this. Have been frustrated with creating arrows for videos.

  2. Thanks Nathan for this video as I wondered how to do this. Learning to use a tablet is on my list of things to learn so I'll have to try this with a mouse.

  3. Is there a particular reason to export the animation as a quicktime file as opposed to something else like AVI? (Also would this still apply on a windows machine?) ty in advance 🙂

  4. This was excellent and easy for old me to follow 🤣 Cinecom recently published a guide on rotoscoping it was nice but so quick in a way, have you considered creating a slower version? 😉

  5. Running towards Orange background and saying this isn't me.. getting real subtle 83, real subtle.
    Ps- any chance of us getting that arrow .aep file? As you said, doesn't look as pretty with mouse…
