2Start distorting face in video

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.

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.
