• You’ve found your latest victim’s face in your timeline and you need to duplicate that clip right above the original.
• Click the original while holding down the “alt-option” key, drag the silhouette above your original clip, and release.
• Double-click your copy, go to the effects tab to search and apply the “Mosaic” edit; you will find it beneath “video effects-stylize”
• I also want you to search for the “Crop” effect and apply it to the duplicate clip as well
• The final effect you’re going to search for and apply is the “Gaussian Blur”
• All three effects have been applied to your clip, go into the “Mosaic” effect and adjust the horizontal and vertical settings. you can make the boxes big or small, just a matter of preference.
• The next thing to do is adjust your “Gaussian Blur” settings by increasing the blur to make your blocks smoother.
• Before you jump into the “Crop” settings, make sure all the toggle animation buttons are highlighted by clicking on them. This creates a “Key Frame,” which allows you to move your effect with the movement of the subject.
• Click that square box next to the word “Crop” to add a crop outline around your footage.
• You’re going to adjust your “Crop” so it only covers your victim’s face.
• The only thing left to do now is to scroll through your footage every couple frames to move the blur so it stays on your victim’s face.
• Remember to keep all of your key frames enabled because you want that effect to follow the movement of your victim’s face.
