Adding a blur to disguise a phone number
on Aug 15, 2008 at 12:32:37 am

Hi,

I've been reading and looking up how to blur a phone number on a screen. So far I am not getting the result I want which is to match the movement of the blur with the original image.

I am using motion. I created a new project in which one group is the original shot.

Then I created another group in which I added a mask and then a gaussian blur.

I went back to the original shot and performed the motion tracking on it. All went well.

Then I went back and selected the second video clip and added match move. It kept stopping every 50 frames but once I was done, I added the match move to the mask and blur.

This seems straight forward but the results do not move the blur with the movement of the original shot.

Any thoughts>

Make sure the tracking point you're using is visible throughout the shot and track from the first frame forward.

Yes I did this.

In the end it did work but I analyzed the blurred masked group rather than the original shot. Somehow everything kinda worked after that.
