Photoshop video editing

OK I have an unlicenced version CS4 so after you have flamed me for that can you help please?

I am trying to blur a face on a video. Some time back I found an excellent online tutorial which I seem to have lost and although I wrote down step by step and had success with videos at the time, I can't get past one step in the procedure. I have searched many tutorials in Google and YouTube and the one I had is not there and none of the others quite cover my problem.

These are the steps I wrote down: -
Open video
Tool Bar
WINDOWS..... Animations
LAYERS........ Dbl Click - rename, Cmd J (make copy)
Rt click - convert to smart object
FILTER......... Pixelate - Mosaic
BLUR.......... Mask - Vector
SHAPE........ Circle over face
LOG........... Blur - Vector mask position
and this is where it goes wrong as the Log is blank, the whole picture is pixelated. I have the cursor for the video at the point the face appears and ready to play it.

BLACK ARROW.....Path selection tool
FILE......... Export, render video

Thanks for your quick reply

No - it's when I want to go to the log and position the vector mask. The log is blank

Hope it helps, and sorry for not reading your post correctly, thus my inane question.
