In this post, we will see how to censor video using Videopad. So we can hide any sensitive data appearing in our video. for eg. email, street address or any other thing which you want to hide in your video.
First add video on the sequence.
To censor a video on the home tab click on the video effect go to the filter section and click on the censor option.
In the effects window make sure the under censor enable option is checked. And you can see there is a little rectangle If you don’t want the colour for this effect click on the blur option. And in the clip preview panel drag and drop the shape upon the object which you want to hide. Immediately that area will be blurred.
You can change the position of the shape by dragging the x and y sliders.Or in the clip preview panel drag and drop the shape.
Increase the size of the blur
To increase the size of the blur shape drag the size slides or on the clip, or in preview panel drag the points to increase the size of the shape.
Change shape of blur
You can change the shape of the effect for that click on the shape option and click on the oval.
Click on the play button to check the effect.
Click on the stop button if you want to adjust the effect. Then click on the clip preview panel and increase or decrease the size. And make sure your object is not popping out of the effect. Once done close the effects window.
Add more blur
Now if you want to hide another part of the video click on the video effects and under filters click on the censor option. Now drag the shape upon the object which you want to hide and repeat the previous steps.
Once done close the effects window. Now click the play button to check the effect.
So this way you can censor the video on Videopad. If you have any questions do post it in comments.
