In this video tutorial I show you how to blur someone's face out with the Cookie Cutter Tool and Pixelate Video Fx, using Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11.

I will also show how to duplicate a video and create keyframes, so that you can track an object with the blur effect staying over the target.

Learning this technique is essential for anyone who needs to maintian someone's privacy. You often see this effect being used during news items on the TV where a court order forbids the identity of an individual being made public.

These instructions will also work for Version 10 of Vegas Movie Studio & Vegas Pro 10 or 11.
