Head over to the Effects tab and drag the Image Mask effect on top of the Black Sample Color clip in your timeline. Then, immediately double-click on that effect in the Timeline, select Effects from the tabs above, and check Invert Mask. Lastly, use the sliders to position the mask perfectly over the object you want to highlight.

Now, unlock Layer 1 from the Timeline, double-click the clip, and select the Effects tab. The final step is to move around the timeline and adjust the sliders at each point if the circle is off. If it’s perfectly smooth during the entire clip, leave it as it is and render the video.
