    How to create pixlelated squares on my videos

    Does anybody know how I can convert scenes or portions of my videos to have that pixelated square effect I see on some music videos. The kind where instead of watching the actual video image you just see a square color in its place that changes in color with the change in the underlying video image. A perfect example is in the Beck music video called Soldier Jane. Sometimes I see this techniques used when trying to block a persons face from being recognised in a video. If anyone knows how to do this I am willing to pay for their services to convert my videos to achieve this effect. Need it done but don't know how.

    Hi there, and welcome to MediaCollege!

    I was actually looking into this myself the other day, and came across this video on YouTube. Haven't actually tried it myself yet, but here's the link. Let us know how you get on!

    Hi swellman

    Most NLE's will have this video effect built-in!!

    For starters, what are you editing with??? If you tell us the software then more than likely another user will be able to give you a quick tutorial on how to do it. If you are using Sony Vegas, I can help otherwise if you are running another package then I'm sure someone else will be able to help!

    Here's another option explained with brief text & screenshots:

    The screenshot example uses a blur effect but you can use a pixelation effect instead.

    In some programs the effect is called Mosaic
