2. Start distorting face in video

There are two ways to distort face in a video: Face off and Mosaic

Face off: After the files being placed into the timeline, right click the video and choose “Power Tools”. In the pop up window, go to the “Face Off" submenu and choose "Apply Face Off to the clip". Choose one of the face off effects from the list. Click OK to confirm the settings. Then the program will automatically distort face in your video.

Mosaic: Sometimes the face detection function might not be 100 percent accurate due to factors like the angle, lighting, obstructions and video quality. To solve this problem, switch to the “Mosaic” tab and draw a square to distort face.
