Yes I have a video of a football match, I want to analysis it and add certain things to it. I know many people here will come back and say use corel videostudio 12 or nero or some video editing software like moviemaker. I have all 3 and none can actually alter the video, you can technically yes, add titles and change to black and white but i mean adding zones to areas of the pitch to show space were player runs into or dotted lines tracking his runs. Any idea on how to accomplish this?

The effects your talking about can be accomplished perfectly with adobe after effects. But AE is pretty expensive, i believe even a couple of hundreds euro's. For more basics effects i would try something like wax 2.0. Which isn't really similar, but freeware. You might be able to make something pretty nice with it.

There is a way to get after effects for free. But it's kinda illegal so I'll leave that alone. You may have to experiment with corel to get what I don't think you can do much else without paying for a more expensive program.

VirtualDub? It works pretty good. It'll let you export the individual frames and you can edit them in something like MS Paint, Photo Shop, Photo Filtre, GIMP or anything you feel comfortable with. I dk if this is what you really want, but I figured I'd suggest it.

 Another possibilty could be to use the chroma-keying function in one of the editing programs that you have.
 The markings that you want to add copuld be made in a paint program, or even anim8or  ;), onto a  pure green backgrond.
 Then put in that track above the footy scene, add the chromokeyer, and your dots/lines will then be visible on the footy field. The you will probably have to adjust the positions.

 Just a possibility.   :)

You could also get the free trial version of macromedia flash and use that.  There are other good 2d animation programs that would work well also, some of which I'm sure are free or have free trials.

 See if any of your softwares has chromokeying.
 If so, there will be information with your software on how to use it
 Its a bit too involved for me to explain here.

 Chromo-keying removes a chosen colour from your pic/video, leaving transparencey where that color used to be.
