How to Blur Face in Video

When posting a video online, you may don’t want to have your face (or someone else’s face) appear or just want to blur out that of others while retaining your own smiling visage. To help you achieve that, Wondershare Filmora (originally Wondershare Video Editor) is a good choice. It features a face-off function which automatically tracks the position and rotation of the face in your picture or video, which lets you blur out faces with minimal effort. You can also use it to automatically add a funny grimace to the detect faces in the video clip. It means that you can replace the people’s faces with hilarious masks instead of the monotonous. Now follow the steps below to see how to blur face in your video.

Hi Isabella, to use the power tool you will need to first import your media files to the library, and then drag the video clip to the video track on timeline. When done, select the video, then you will see the power tool feature becoming clickable. Here is a detailed guide:http://www.wondershare.com/video-editor/advanced-editing.html Best.
Thanks a lot for your feedback. The file size of this program is approximately 90M, plus the extra built-in resources(credit titles, intros, special effects etc.), it won't be more than 200M in total. The reason that it costs you much more space than that is probably because the media files you've imported. If you have troubles uninstalling this program, please try this free tool: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/25276/appcleaner Let me know if you have further questions. Best
This app installed about a gig worth of software and this is the only feature I needed, and it doesn't even work. I realize I can uninstall, but it leaves about 800mb of garbage on my machine. As a sr software engineer myself I cannot believe you would release a product in this state.
Could not use the power tool ...
