Just create a black and white pattern, use the alpha preset to blend the video depending of the pattern in.

I have no idea how this could work but in my mind it should look like this. Input one is a clear screen, second is the video, third is the greyscale video or image. Maybe the "image overlay" preset or the "chroma key" could help in this case.

Anyway. I'm really, really thankful for your efforts and for Owls contributions too. I think the video thing is way to underrepresented and it would be cool to have a section in the forum to gather information, presets and manual for the video interested people.

Cheers Eli, glad I can help. Is this what you had in mind?
//@param1:byCl 'bypass clear screen' 0 0 1 0 1
//@param2:byVi 'bypass video' 0 0 1 0 1
//@param3:byMask 'bypass mask' 0 0 1 0 1

//@param5:alCl 'alpha clear screen' 0.5 0 1 0.5 0.005
//@param6:modeCl 'mode clear screen' 0 0 19 0 1

//@param8:csp 'colorspace (1=RGBA)' 1 0 1 0 1

// next (or previous, depending on project settings) video track: clear screen
// track after next track: video
// third closest track: mask


csp ? colorspace='RGBA';

!byVi ? (gfx_a=1;  gfx_mode=0; gfx_blit(input_track(1)););  // overlay
!byMask ? (gfx_a=-1; gfx_mode=1; gfx_blit(input_track(2)););  // subtraction
!byCl ? (gfx_a=alCl;  gfx_mode=modeCl; gfx_blit(input_track(0)););
I was unsure about the term 'clear screen' and how to blend it into the selective transparent layer so there are parameters for alpha+blend mode.
