① All Faces: When you select "All Faces", the program will effortlessly apply a blur effect to every single face that appears in the video.

② Assign Faces: By choosing "Assign Faces", the program will apply a blur effect exclusively to the faces you have selected. It's a fantastic feature that allows you to personalize your blurring experience.

When you choose "Assign Faces", a prompt will appear asking you to select faces. To choose specific faces, you'll need to scan them first. The program offers two scanning modes: frame scan and quick scan.

frame scan: completely scan all faces, frame by frame, with a touch of precision and a bit of slowness.

quick scan: by default, the program extracts and scans 1 frame from every 10 frames. However, you have the flexibility to enter any desired number in the provided box.

After selecting the scan mode, click the "Scan" button to start the scanning process.

After the scanning process is completed, you can select the specific faces to which you want to add the blur effect.

③ Free Form: Through "Free-form Selection", the faces in the video playback window are marked with numbers. You can quickly apply blur to selected faces by clicking on the numbered markers. This feature will enhance your experience by simplifying the recognition and selection process, ensuring a hassle-free and efficient face blur editing experience.

3. Adjust Blur Effect

Adjust the blur effect by dragging the slider: slide to the right to increase effect, and to the left to decrease it.

① Adjust Blur Strength

This is used to control the intensity of the blur. By dragging or adjusting this button, you can increase or decrease the blur effect, making the image or video more blurred or clearer.

② Adjust Blur Size

This is used to adjust the size or range of the blur effect. By changing this button, you can control the range of the blur, thereby affecting the degree and effect of the blur. Typically, increasing the size of the blur effect will result in a wider blur, while reducing the size will make the blur area smaller.

③ Adjust Blur Edge Feathering

This is used to adjust the degree of feathering at the edges of the blur. Feathering refers to the transition effect between the blur effect and the edges of the image or video. By adjusting this button, you can control the softness of the blur edges, making the blur effect more natural or more prominent.
