    Are you familiar with those iphone apps like Cinemagram and Kinotopic where you can take a video, take a still frame from it but then animate part of the frame back into a video by drawing a mask over where you want to animate.
    Can I do this inside any editing software? I've got imovie and final cut...Cinemagram and the other apps that do this don't let me export to my hard drive! So I want to take my clips and muck around with them using the capability that Cinemagram has, but with more use at the end of it.

    I then want to take several of these clips and arrange them on one screen. How do I do that? I don't really want a neat grid of video clips, I'd like more of a blurredness between the borders of each video clip, but is that possible??

    Thanks to anyone who can help me on this! I've googled and can find nothing.

    you need a compositing program like After Effects.....its not a quick or simple process and will probably have a very steep learning curve if you are not familiar with the program.
