3. To apply Face Off effect

The difference between the Mosaic effect and the Face-off effect is that with the Mosaic effect you will be able to blur a stationary portion of your video clip, whereas with Face-off you will be able to cover moving faces. Here’s how.

  • Go to Effects in the top menu and type face-off into the search bar, or scroll through the effects until you find UTILITY. Then choose Face-off.
  • Drag the Face-Off effect onto the clip you want to apply it to in the timeline. Then, choose either the blurred effect or one of the replacement images. You can preview what your video looks like with the Face-Off effect by clicking the Play button in the Preview Window. Click OK when you’re done.
  • If you want to add your own image as a face-off cover, save it to this folder on your computer: i \Application\Wondershare Filmora for Mac.app\Contents\Resource\FaceOffImg.
