Add Blur Tasks
1. Face Blur
There are two options for face blur.
All Faces: Select All Faces, and the program will automatically blur every face.
Assign Faces: To blur faces selectively, select Assign Faces and scan the faces first. You can see two options for face scan:
-Quick Scan: Extract one frame from the frame interval you set for scanning. The default frame interval is 10. The larger the number of interval frames, the shorter the scan time, but the lower the accuracy.
-Frame Scan: Scan each frame with high accuracy but time-consuming.
After the scan is completed, all the scanned faces will appear in the bottom panel, and you can select any face you want to blur.
After the face to be blurred is selected, set the type of blur: Standard, Blur or Custom. Then click Add Face Blur Task.
2. Custom Blur
This function allows you to arbitrarily select the area in the video that needs to be blurred. Select rectangle or circle, and the corresponding shape will appear in the video. Left-click to drag the position of the shape and resize it.
After the area to be blurred is selected, set the type of blur: Standard, Blur or Custom. Then click Add Custom Blur Task.
3. BG Blur
This function allows you to select the background or foreground in the video that needs to be blurred. Select Background Blur or Foreground Blur.
After the foreground or background to be blurred is selected, set the type of blur: Standard, Blur or Custom. Then click Add BG Blur Task.
After adding one and more blurring tasks, you can delete, edit or crop the task sequences in the timeline panel.
-Delete: Delete the blurring task from the timeline panel.
-Edit: Change the blur type, and reset the start and end frame.
-Crop: Clip the length of the blurring task.
Tips: Face blur, custom blur and BG blur can be processed simultaneously. You just need to repeat the above steps: re-select the new area to be blurred, set the blur type, and then add blur tasks.
Start to Blur Your Video
After editing the blurring tasks, click the Export Video button to process and export the blurred video. When it is finished, you can open the file folder and enjoy the final video.
