I am mounting a video, with three boys walking down a corridor hotel, long perspective, approcing the camera, so getting closer each steps…
They told me that they don’t want to be recognised, so I have to “erase” their face, their features…
I really don’t know how!
I wil probably use the spost remover and animate it with transient, but if there is another nicer way, more original, maybe colorful, to do it - maybe adding masks? please tell me!
Thanks for posting, @JBP, you triggered a learning experience for me.
It looks like you are stuck with Spot Remover for now, called three times, one for each boy, and animated with Keyframes.
I was hoping I could do it with either Mask: Simple Shape or Mask: From File, animated with Keyframes, but the first has no “Invert” and the second has no Size/Position animation.
If Mask: Simple Shape had an Invert checkbox, I would have used an animated alpha ellipse to reveal either a Gaussian blurred identical clip, or something more colorful like a fireworks video in the place of each face.
And if wishes were horses…
Now I see. Yes, that does give me what I want, in this case, when it is over another visible track, and a simple see-through is all I want.
I would still like to have an invert; perhaps I may want to Multiple all except…
(I had seen only black on Subtract, previously, I now know, because I was not over anything visible.)
One or two more questions, @Namna, can it be stacked three times, for @JBP’s three faces? If so, would you like to write the step-by-step instructions for @JBP, or should I?
Pour flouter 3 visages il faut mettre dans l’ordre 1 Masque simple sur le 1° visage réglé sur écraser 1 Masque simple sur le 2° visage réglé sur ajouter 1 Masque simple sur le 3° visage réglé sur ajouter 1 filtre flou ou mosaique ou autre 1 filtre Masque appliquer
To blur 3 faces it is necessary to put in order
1 Simple mask on the 1st face set to Overwrite
1 Simple mask on the 2nd face set to Add
1 Simple mask on the 3rd face set to Add
1 Blur or mosaic filter or another
1 Mask Apply filter
And because they are walking, @JBP, you will need to click the stopwatch icon an each to enable Keyframes, and for each set Keyframe points to keep the ellipse centered on the face and covering the whole face and only the face.
