For example, when showing a change of directory during a recording, it may not be desirable to let the general public see a particular directory structure and filenames that might have been caught during the navigation to the target directory. Same idea when TV news broadcasts sometimes blur faces or license plate numbers.
Is this possible in Flashback Pro 5? Any suggested workarounds? (editing out those frames or placing a big text box over the subject comes to mind).
Yes - you can add a 'blur' object to hide these details. In the FlashBack Player menus, go to Insert -> Blur. You can also add one via the buttons in the central toolbar.
Ah. I should have pulled down all the list boxes and searched more thoroughly. I see it all clearly now. Sorry for the trouble. Thanks!
how do we blur a section of the screen during a video? ( we could blur a frames, but how could we keep a particular area blur for a period of time pls?
You can set the duration (in seconds) that the blur appears for when adding it.
Or you can increase the duration of an existing blur by stretching the blur object that appears below the framebar.
During my screen recording there was an email pop up alert in the bottom right corner. I used the blur tool to blur it out but I'd rather cover it up completely. Is there a way to make the blur more opaque or to put some sort of white box over it to completely blank it out?
There's not opacity setting - just the radius setting which controls the intensity of the blurring.
If the blur isn't sufficient, you could import an image of something to put over it - even just an image of pure white if that is all you need.
