I have a job coming up that requires me to blur each individual face in a crowd of people. Is there a way/plugin that will allow for some level of facial recognition then apply a filter over it? I do not need it to recognize each individual face and tag it, just that there is a face and have control over an area around it.

Oooh, you gotta stop watchin' them crime-solving shows! To my knowledge, there is NOTHING of a desktop-application nature that does even rudimentary face recognition.

I do no envy your task sir. Blurring a bunch of individual faces, then keeping the blurs over those faces through animation, is not a task for the faint of heart.

You MIGHT be able to track the faces, but if heads turn, it's going to be a tough track... not to mention a lot of them.

I just used Roto Brush for this. Blot a fat foreground stroke in the middle of each face, and then step through a frame at a time to make sure that the segmentation stayed good. Use the result as the matte for an adjustment layer.

Oh, you're jokin' me! I have got to get my mitts on that Rotobrush!
