Hey guys! New member here!
Normally when riding with my friends I edit out their numberplates (since in holland they can just send a ticket to your home trough your numberplate if they see you speeding in a video)

But how do you guys pixelate faces/ numberplates/ other stuff? ( I use Sony Vegas)
I normally just track it by hand but this is very time consuming! Do you guys do it by hand or track it with a software? I triend BorisFX but that is very crash sensitive.

I havent found anything good and free for automatically blurring plates out. Have you tried the editor built into Youtube, I noticed the other day there is a option specifically for number plates.

Cyberlink Powerdirector and a few of the other major video editors have fairly good tracking built in.

There is a whole editing program on youtube. You could film on your cell upload to youtube and edit the video there using the editor.

Go to Studio, open a video like your going to add tags or whatever, on the left the 3rd option down is editor, takes you to video editing, blue button on bottom of video/audio sliders "add blur" click and it open a new window where you can blur faces or custom blur and track.

Not sure how well it tracks as I have only used once.

Awesome stuff, thank you, had no idea that was available, may give it a try next time we get fruity and plates need some added discretion! :D

My only concern, with it would be that YouTube would hold an un-edited copy, so if the police decided to investigate, they may be able to remove the editing?

That is an interesting thought. I wonder if youtube is allowed to do that. Or will even be bothered to do that

I think you'd have to be doing some serious stuff for the feds to bother though to be fair. Speaking from experience.

The blurring inside Youtube studio just doesnt work. I've tried Firefox and Chrome and the blurring functionality doesnt even start.

I also forgot to mention the feaure is only in old youtube studio, not the new beta version. Which is missing so many features, its crazy.

I may be wrong but I dont think YouTube has another copy. When you use their editing there is no going back from my experience.
