Promat Masking and Pixilation Techniques 1 day.

Masking and Pixilation allows your users to remove features from a suspect that are unrepeatable across your volunteers. For instance a scar on the left cheek would be pixilated or masked and then subsequently the same area will be pixilated or masked on every volunteer. This ensures a fair parade for both the suspect and the witness.

This course allows your staff to easily mask/pixilate their own video selection for a parade. After completing this course a single average mask or pixilation should only take about 3-5 minutes per clip with a total parade creation time of less than 1 hour.

Training Package 3
  • Using layers to make multiple masks
  • Using block colour to mask
  • Using pixilation to mask
  • Using transparent Layers
  • Mask tracking
  • Video Cropping
  • Video Slow Motion
  • Automated mask rotation
  • Mask object repository
