    Hey guys, I've made a couple videos, but I need to find a way to mask my face in them so that my identity is kept anonymous... any feedback greatly appreciated :redface:

    There are two ways, depending on where your face appears in the frame. The first being to simply crop the video and cut off part of the frame, if for example your face is only at the top. The second is to blur the area or put a solid square of colour over your face as it moves around. That can be tricky if your face moves a lot. Do you use any editing software at the moment? If so, what's it called?

    Okay so you should have iMovie then, or if you only need to crop you can download the free program from squared5.com. Does your face move around much in the video?

    Well, The video I want to edit has me laying on my back so my face does move too much... Can I do anything with the imovie feature? Thanks for the link to the free software :) Is it safe to use?
