    Anyway to get this done without downloading a plug in? What about in FCE 4? If I need a plug in, which one? Thankyou.

    You're going to have a rough time doing this in FCE unless the subjects are staying completely still. If that's the case, you'll have to do keyframing up the wazoo... plan on spending upwards of an hour per 10 seconds of footage, depending on how exact you want the movement to. If you had Motion, you could simply track the person's head, and put a blurred or mosaic spot on top and have it follow the track.

    Otherwise, it's almost not worth it.

    Err.. It doesn't have to be that perfect. Keyframing isn't that hard. He could add one every 5th frame or something.
