I need to blur someone's face (at their request) for an educational video. How do I do this in Videostudio Pro x5?

You don't happen to have the Ultimate version, do you? That comes with the NewBlueFX Pixelator effect from the VideoEssentials I Collection, made just for that purpose. You still have to do the tedious task of keyframming the position of the pixelation as your subject moves to new positions.

the third post down in this topic gives an explanation of one way to do it :- viewtopic.php?p=194820&highlight=#194820

It does of course depend on how much the face moves around the screen while it is visible - if it doesn't move at all then a simple colour block or even a quick drawing in the Painting Creator would do it.

In this situation, I use Vegas 11 with the cookie cutter. It pays to have both programs.
