  • Need to Blur a Face in Premiere Pro? Here’s How You Do It

    first_imgIn this video tutorial, learn how you can obscure your subject’s identity in Adobe Premiere Pro by using the mosaic effect.Cover image via Shutterstock.If you’ve worked in television or documentaries long enough, you’ve probably had to blur out a face once or twice. Maybe you don’t have a release form, or you want to protect someone’s identity from being exposed. Whatever the case may be, adding a mosaic to a person’s face in Premiere Pro is quick and easy. Premiere’s mosaic effect comes with user-friendly tools that will allow you to easily apply a mosaic to a moving face in just a few minutes. Let’s take a look at how we can do this. Step 1 — Add the Mosaic EffectFirst I need to apply the mosaic effect to my clip. This effect allows me to add horizontal and vertical blocks to my image. I can add keyframes to both of these attributes, and there’s an option to sharpen the colors of my mosaic. Also, as with most effects in Premiere Pro, there is a mask tool inside the mosaic effect. Now that I have applied the effect, it’s time to add a mask to our subject.Step 2 — Create a MaskThere are several different ways to add a mask with the mosaic effect. I can quickly create an ellipse or 4-point polygon mask, or I can use the pen tool to create a custom path. Since I’m masking a face, the ellipse tool will work just fine. Once I click the ellipse mask tool, I’ll position the mask over my subject’s face. Next, I need to track the mask to my subject’s face as she walks through the scene.Step 3 — Track Mask PathWhen tracking a mask path, there are three tracking methods from which to choose:PositionPosition and RotationPosition, Rotation, and ScaleSince my subject is moving toward the camera, I’ll leave the tracking method on the default Position, Rotation, and Scale method. I can track the mask forward or backward, frame by frame or with standard playback. It’s best to start the track when your subject is closer to the camera. Once the track is complete, I should be able to see keyframes on my mask path attribute.Step 4 — Fine-TuneAs long as my track was successful, I should now have a mosaic applied to the subject’s face. For the final step, I can fine-tune the effect. There’s a variety of different things I can do to fine-tune the effect, including adjusting the mask expansion, the mask feather, and the number of horizontal and vertical blocks. Again, since my subject is moving toward the camera, I can add keyframes to any of these attributes to have them change as the subject approaches.And there you have it. In just a few minutes, I’ve created a mosaic that follows my subject as she moves through the scene.Looking for more Premiere Pro tips?

Loved all of them! Especially the one of me doing ‘Gunday 2’ with Taimur.

  • Backing players has worked for us Ricky Ponting

    first_imgNew Delhi: With his team placed comfortably at the second spot in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting believes that keeping the faith in his players has helped the team in finding the form at this crucial juncture of the competition. The 44-year-old Australian said: “There have been questions asked about where we should have dropped certain players in some matches, but I believe that when you have talented players in your squad, you just keep backing them. You know that we have players who can turn it around quite quickly as it takes just one innings or match to get going in a tournament like this.” Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh He added: “In the first phase of the tournament, players like Rishabh (Pant) might have had certain thoughts around his mind about the World Cup selection, but to be honest, that 78* in the first match against Mumbai was what got us the win. “I’m glad he found the form again against RR, and what you want from players like him in such a tournament is that they win you three or four matches each throughout the season, and he has certainly won two games for us so far, and if he remains in form, he can get a couple of more wins.” Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later Delhi Capitals sit second on the points table with a tally of 14 points from their 11 matches, which include seven wins and four losses. But Ponting believes that his team is in good form and is peaking at the right time. He said: “We have won the last four out of our five matches, and with three more matches to go, I feel we are going in the right direction. I am happy that the team is peaking at the right time, with better communication amongst the group.” Asked which victory he enjoyed the most, Ponting said that the away win against Hyderabad by 39 runs was the sweetest in terms of turning it around from a losing situation. “I really liked the Hyderabad win because we didn’t do much right in that match but still found a way to win. It was more the way we fought back, probably after their batting powerplay, they batted second and they were 60-0, and the game was starting to slip away but there were some really good signs in that game from our side. “The moments when we have been under pressure the most, that is when we have started to fight, and fight under pressure, and one thing that I’ve tried to say to the boys is that we do not lose the match until the last ball is bowled. “We saw that in our last match against Rajasthan as well. We fought our way back into the match and then registered the win. But out of the seven matches that we have won, I think the Hyderabad win has been the most satisfying,” he added. After the conclusion of a couple of days’ rest, the Delhi Capitals’ squad will re-group on Friday at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium to prepare for their upcoming match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Sunday.last_img read more

  • March Madness Crib Notes For Sundays Games

    West RegionalIN BRIEFGame to watch: No. 1 Wisconsin vs. No. 8 Oregon (87.3) at 7:45 p.m. EDT on TruTVIN DEPTHWisconsin (87 percent) vs. OregonPlayer to watch: Frank Kaminsky, WisconsinOregon’s offense — far and away the strength of the team — came to the rescue against Oklahoma State in the round of 64 as the Ducks shot 55 percent from the floor to outgun the Cowboys in a 79-73 win. But securing enough stops to beat Wisconsin might be a struggle for the defensively challenged Ducks. According to Ken Pomeroy’s ratings, Wisconsin easily owns the best offense in the country, a unit primed to take advantage of Oregon’s weak shot defense and inability to force turnovers. The Ducks also lack the risky traits that sometimes help heavy underdogs chance their way into upsets. But one path the Ducks might navigate to victory is to force the tempo and make the Badgers play at their pace. Oregon had the 33rd-fastest offense in the country this season (as measured by seconds per possession), while Wisconsin had the third-slowest. While Saturday’s top-billed matchups (specifically, Arizona-Ohio State and Kentucky-Cincinnati) looked sexier on paper than any in store on Sunday, day No. 2 of the round of 32 offers some solid games of its own — as well as fewer sleepers. Keep a particular eye on the trio of 2-versus-7 matchups, each of which should be reasonably competitive by the standards of this round.Here’s what else to look for:South RegionalGame to watch: No. 1 Duke vs. No. 8 San Diego State (a harmonic mean of 88.0) at 2:40 p.m. EDT on CBSUpset alert! No. 7 Iowa (27 percent win probability) vs. No. 2 Gonzaga at 7:10 p.m. EDT on TBSIN DEPTHDuke (85 percent win probability) vs. San Diego StatePlayer to watch: Jahlil Okafor, DukeAfter taking care of Robert Morris with ease in its opener, Duke moves on to face the slow-paced, defensively focused Aztecs. San Diego State has a tall team that ranks among the nation’s best at limiting opponents’ shooting efficiency and keeping them from getting to the line. But watch for Duke’s offensive rebounding (spearheaded by All-Everything center Jahlil Okafor) to offset some of SDSU’s defensive advantage. And when the Aztecs have the ball, scoring might be an ordeal. Neither of San Diego State’s two go-to guys on offense — Winston Shepard and Dwayne Polee — could even match the Division I average for efficiency when they ended an Aztec possession, a trend that figures to continue against a solid Blue Devils defense. East RegionalIN BRIEFGame to watch: No. 2 Virginia vs. No. 7 Michigan State (89.5) at 12:10 p.m. EDT on CBSUpset alert! No. 5 Northern Iowa (55 percent) vs. No. 4 Louisville at 9:40 p.m. EDT on TBSIN DEPTHVirginia (72 percent) vs. Michigan StatePlayer to watch: Anthony Gill, VirginiaVirginia didn’t exactly look dominant against a stubborn Belmont team Friday, and now the Cavaliers must face an even tougher opponent in Michigan State. The Spartans have the talent to stick with Virginia — they’d have a 37 percent chance of the upset here if we based our prediction on preseason ratings alone — and their coach is familiar with deep tournament runs. Plus, Virginia operates its offense at a veritable crawl, slowing down the game and inviting the kind of variance that can prove deadly for a favorite. But other than their snail-like pace, the Cavaliers play a sturdy style as upset-proof as any, relying primarily on two-point shooting, ball security, rebounding, and an old-fashioned big, tough interior defense. It all makes for a team with few clear weaknesses, something Michigan State will likely learn the hard way.Check out FiveThirtyEight’s March Madness predictions. Midwest RegionalIN BRIEFGame to watch: No. 2 Kansas vs. No. 7 Wichita State (87.6) at 5:15 p.m. EDT on CBSUpset alert! No. 5 West Virginia (55 percent) vs. No. 4 Maryland at 8:40 p.m. EDT on TNTIN DEPTHKansas (57 percent) vs. Wichita StatePlayer to watch: Fred VanVleet, Wichita StateWichita State’s offense clicked in the second half of its victory over Indiana on Friday, but the points may not come as easily against a strong Kansas defense that ranks ninth nationally in Ken Pomeroy’s schedule-adjusted ratings. The game may come down to whether Wichita State can execute its pick-and-roll — according to Synergy Sports, the Shockers’ pick-and-roll ball-handling efficiency ranked in the 93rd percentile of Division I schools; the Jayhawks’ defense was in the 85th percentile at stopping the play. At the other end, it’s worth watching whether the more interior-focused Kansas offense can adapt to take advantage of a Wichita State defense that dares opponents to move the ball around and shoot from the outside. read more
