I have done this in Sony’s Vegas (I did it in version six but this works in all). Most NLE’s should be able to handle this.
You use a technique called rotoscoping which is described above for AE. It is a time consuming process (you probably don’t need masks for all frames but you will for a number of them – figure an average of about 7 or 8 per second which comes out to every three or four frames for NTSC). I have done this and it really is simple but tedious.
