    It doesn't mean you use Windows Movie Maker, it means you ARE a Windows movie maker. If you post enough, you'll change!

    As for your question, if I understand you correctly, you want to show vido footage of a page of text and blur some of it. (Grazie's answer addresses a slightly different problem, I think)
    You are correct in that you would use masks.
    Have an identical event (clip) on tracks 1 and 2.
    Apply a gausian blur to track 2
    Use Pan & Crop on track 1 -
    click the "Mask" button at the bottom of the FX dialog next to the FX timeline
    User the tools on the LH side to create a Bezier mask.

    If the shot moves, you can create keyframes on the tmeline and move the Bezier mask over time.

    Good luck!
