    Hey, I'm new to video editing. I searched about my problem but didn't got any proper answer because I don't know what this feature is called.

    I needed to how to add moving line on the boundary/edge of the video? This line start moving when video starts and keep increasing and meets when video ends.

    Also what is this feature called?

  3. Overlay a green bar at the right. The y position varies with the frame number or time.

    Any NLE can do this. An example using AviSynth:

    Code:
    function ProgressBar(clip v, clip bar, int pos)
    {
       Overlay(v, bar, x=v.width-4, y=v.height-pos)
    }
    
    ColorBars().Trim(0,100).ShowFrameNumber(x=10, y=20)
    bar = BlankClip(color=$00ff00).Crop(0,0,4,-0)
    
    Animate(0,framecount-1,"ProgressBar", last,bar,0,  last,bar,last.height)

  5. "rectangular progress bar" , or "animated stroke", or "animated path"

    There many ways to do this - you could do it as an animated overlay, or mask reveal, or path animation, or html5 code, or some plugins . So it depends on what program you are using

    Plugins are probably easiest for this task. They typically enable you to "draw" a line along a mask path. You just set a keyframe for the start and end (0% to 100%). e.g. "stroke" in after effects. Since it "follows" a mask you can do any shape, it doesn't have to be a rectangle. It can be a circle or text, or even complex shapes or text, calligraphy etc..
