(Step 5) Click on the video and a resizable frosted box will appear. Drag this box inside the video frame and adjust its size as per requirements. Finally, you can define the length of time (ie how long) the blur effects should appear in your video. Do this by adjusting the width of the tab in the timeline below your video.

Customized Blurring

By default, the object you select to blur is tracked automatically by YouTube as the video proceeds. But if you don’t want the automated object tracking and prefer to blur a specific portion inside the video frame then click on the Pin inside the same timeline (see image above).

Once you have added the required blurring effects in your video, click on the Done button to apply the process.
