Blacking Out Faces

Question

Can anyone tell me how I might black or blur out someones face in a video? I have a video I want to use on YouTube, but a friend does not want his face showing in it. I fiddled around and figured out how to use an overlay to blackout his face, but in the video, the camera is panning and I can't figure out how to move the overlay with the panning motion. I guess this is probably not possible with VWave, huh? I know I've used other programs in the past that had this feature, but I can't find it anywhere in EMC10.

 

Thanks much!

To add, EMC 10 allows, I believe, five overlay tracks. You can use all those tracks to do successive/alternate overlay to follow the movement of the subject. Very tedious to do especially when subject moves rapidly.

I know this really isn't a solution, but Photoshop CS3 extended allows frame by frame editing of videos, lots of cool effects are possible when you add the world of Photoshop to your video.

You can edit video in PhotoShop?

 

Pensacola - as far as I know, there is no easy way to do that in Videowave. More advanced editors have a key framed mask tracking feature.
