    Hey, I'm editing the 1984 movie to make it high school appropriate. I want to put a smiley face over the nudity in it. How do I do this in iMovie HD 2006? I'm a n00b at video editing. :eek:

    The easy answer is Final Cut Express.

    For iMovie, there are various plugin packs you can google around for that can probably give you what you want in a limited way.

    This company:


    Seems to have overlays, like the "dot" overlay that might work for you. The thing is though, I don't think iMovie has any tracking capability, so everytime the subject moves, you may have a heck of a time moving with it.

    Also this free plugin pack has an overlay plugin that might work for what you want.


    if it's something you think you'll be doing often, or you want precision censoring like blurring or "pixelating", I recommend getting final cut express.

    Good luck! Hope this helps
