In Videowave, timeline view, split the movie on either side of the section you want to blur (expand the timeline for accuracy). Click on the section you want to blur to select it, click add Video effects, add the blur you want to the internal effect track of the selected panel.

Note that video effect applies to the whole image. If you only want to blur or mask a specific area in a section of the movie (e.g. someone's face), then add a suitable mask as overlay, and in the settings you can adjust size, position, rotation and transparency of the mask (if you want to use one of the existing overlays click add overlay. If you want to use a separate image, click add photo, add as ovelay). Therefore if the overlays provided do not suit your purpose, you can create you own mask in any graphics package (I use Paintshop pro).
