Adding Blur to Quicktime Videos in Post-Production is Easy in Youtube’s Free Browser-based Editor!

The video is about an hour long, and there were a few small things I wanted to blur on the screen (serial numbers for software). I was surprised that Youtube now has a “blur” effect available after uploading to their site. It was simple to use, as well! Just draw a rectangle on the screen, and it adds an After Effects-esque timeline layer that is easily customizable. Check it out:
