  • bluring out multiple faces in one shot

    Posted by James Sehatt on June 25, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    Hi all

    I need to blur out more than one face in a single shot, i’m copying the clip, placing it above the initial shot and adding a color matt on the 3rd layer which allows me to blur out one face, but when I copy the color matt to place on the forth layer to blur another face – it’s not working.

    Any suggestions on how to blur multiple faces in one shot?

    You can do it even with just one extra copy of the footage. Download Simple Mask filter (free stuff from Creative Impatience), place copy of footage on the track above and add Simple Mask (for first mask composite mode must be as “create”), duplicate it as many times as you need (every other mask must be in composite mode “add”), do keyframe’ing and tweaking and add some blur.

    If you have Premiere Pro CC 2014 this is easy to do.

    Check out this link or other tutorials for more examples.

    Hey folks,
    To add to this thread: mocha version 4 products can now paste tracked masks directly into Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014.

    The difference between the Premiere mask tracker and mocha is that you can have unlimited mask layers, can handle occluded areas, out of focus objects and fully keyframeable masks.

    Hope this helps.
