In this video tutorial we share a trick for blurring out faces using Adobe After Effects.
Whether you are trying to protect your subjects identity or don’t have permission to use someones face, this tutorial will help us learn how to blur out faces just like they do on TV.
It’s a really easy concept but it requires a using a few newer tools in After Effects. The video covers:

- Using the mosaic effect
- Different methods of creating anonymity.
Even if you aren’t trying to blur out a face, using the mask tracker can be really useful for tracking any effect over your video.
