    I search a similar function like Face Blurring from YouTube.

    can't afford Premiere Pro or similar priced pro applications :(

    With some time and patience, Final Cut Express can do that. I'm not going to fool you -- it's not an easy, automatic process.

    Since YouTube has this capability, why not upload your video to YouTube, have them blur the faces, then re-download your video? Yeah, the video quality might suffer, but it's free and fast, right?

    Like Aarond12 said, FCE4 can do what you need. How long is the segment that needs blurring ? I had to keyframe blur a video that was nearly 4 minutes long. The edit time with FCE4 was like eight/nine hours. But, that time does factor in me learning as I went and that my computer at the time was slow as molasses.

    Final Cut Express is obsolete? Didn't find a current version:


    I don't like cloud solutions (prefer software on my box) and don't want to publish all my movies :(

    Final Cut Pro X should have what you need... Not free though.

    Isn't there an Adobe Premier Elements still on the market? If so it may do what you need.
