Blur out faces / mute sound at certain times


Y

Yobbo

Hi All

I might be being a bit thick here, but can moviemaker allow me to do the
following with a video file (AVI):

1) Blur out somebody's face. The videos are of pre-school kids and some
kids aren't allowed on the movies, but they always have a knack of wandering
into shot.

2) Mute the sound at certain times. Again, certain conversations might be
picked up in the background that we don't want on film, so the ability to
mute out the sound at opportune times is vital.

If it can't, do you know of any inexpensive software that can?

Thanks

The following info was recently posted

MM can't do this naturally, but there are ways round it.

Do another search on that forum and you'll come up with more threads to try.

Split the clip on both sides of the audio
that needs to be muted...right click the
section in question and choose Mute.

Maybe something in the following
tutorial will work for you:

"Splitting A Clip In MM2.1"

Drag the video/audio clip to the
Timeline.

Play the video/audio by clicking the
"Play" button under the view screen.

You will see the Playback Indicator
(vertical line) advancing across the
timeline.

Click the "Pause" button at the point
where you wish to trim and type...
Ctrl+L or click the "Split" button at the
bottom of the view screen.
(you can also make adjustments by
dragging the Playback Indicator)

Make as many splits as you want and
remove the unwanted clips by right
click / delete...or mute the clips by right
click / mute
