So you shot a really nice street video bustling with people, and you want to showcase your video on the Web. But before that, you want to blur the faces of people to protect their identity. And since you captured a moving crowd, you also want to ensure that the faces continue to remain blurred as they move from frame to frame through the video.
Sounds like a daunting task?
Not any more. The new Masking and Tracking feature in Adobe Premiere Pro CC makes it easier than ever to blur out a portion of a frame and track it across the video in just a few clicks! Don’t believe me? Try it out for yourself.
In this 5-min video tutorial, learn how to apply a feathered mask to protect a person’s identity and then track that mask as it moves across the frame in a scene.
The tutorial provides you sample files to try out the feature for yourself.
After you figure out how easy it is to draw and track an effect mask over a portion of a video frame, learn about the finer nuances like inverting mask selection, copying and pasting masks between clips, and more at: Masking and Tracking in Premiere Pro CC.
