Plugin for easily disguising objects in video

Track and disguise through various blurring techniques any moving faces and objects in your video.


FaceBlur by CrumplePop is a plugin that lets you blur or pixellate faces, logos, or other objects – right inside Final Cut Pro X. FaceBlur automatically tracks moving objects, so you don’t need to keyframe your blur effect by hand.

  • Blurs or pixellates any object
  • Automatically tracks moving objects
  • Includes PlanarBlur for blurring TVs and screens

Sometimes you have to disguise objects in your video. Whether your shot contains a person who didn't sign a waiver to appear in your video, or a logo that can't appear in your video, FaceBlur lets you quickly blur or pixellate the object you want to hide.

FaceBlur automatically tracks objects in your video. So if you need to blur the face of someone riding a bicycle, for instance, FaceBlur will track the subject's face – no labor-intensive keyframing required. The blur area simply follows the subject's face wherever it moves in the frame.

FaceBlur also includes the powerful PlanarBlur tool, which automatically tracks flat objects like TV screens, computer screens, or signs. PlanarBlur maintains the perspective of the object, so only the flat area is blurred. The result is a more subtle, polished effect that doesn't distract from the rest of the video. As with the standard FaceBlur tool, the PlanarBlur tool tracks objects automatically – no manual keyframing required.
