Thread: Blur part of a video

    Default Blur part of a video

    Hi all!

    Just discovered this forum in search of answers .

    Basically i need to use some video-footage i recorded in a escape room.
    But the owner has asked me to blur out everything but the bare necessities so the escape room's secrets aren't revealed to anyone watching my video.

    Since i'm a total noob i just made my video with Windows Movie Maker but i can't find anything to blur parts of the video.

    is there any free software out there that allows me to do this? Or do you have any suggestions on how i should go about this?

    Thanks in advance!

    You could create a blurred clean plate e.g. from an extracted frame or screenshot in Gimp, cut out the sections that you need to reveal and then add this image as overlay to your video.

    Sounds do-able.Only problem is that Movie Maker doesn't allow you to do image overlay.
    Any free software that does?

    I use Openshot but the Windows version is still in its alpha test phase. Others often recommend lightworks.
