Automatically detect and blur faces and license plates

Hello,

 

Is there any facility within Premiere Pro (or one of its third party plug-ins) that will automatically detect faces and number plates and apply blur (or redaction) to the relevant area? There seem to be plenty of videos on how to use masks, guassian blurs and so forth, but these appear to be somewhat manual in set up and would not be practical in blurring the many faces and license plates that one encounters on a 5 hour drive.

 

Thanks,

 

Matthew

Thanks, I cannot see any pricing information, but will see what I can find out. I did also find this, https://blurit.io/, that does provide per MB pricing. Based on ~80GB of video (at 0.02 euros per MB), looks like that will be 1,600 euros. Scary

Yeah, that's too much money, maybe they have a 'bulk' price offer?

I also found this looks like a locally run USA based company; maybe more affordable?

Thanks, this solution does not look practical for the number of faces and license plates that need to be blurred. Everything needs to be as automated as possible. In the above (YouTube) solution, it seems that every artifact needing blurring has to be specified individually. I believe Premiere Pro does this out of the box (including the tracking part). I assume am reading the instructions in the link correctly.

I would suggest you try the YouTube face blur, it looks automatic to me:

YouTube Video Editor: How to Blur Faces and Objects - YouTube

for the faces anyway.

Not sure about plates.  I have a security system that can detect people, faces and plates in camera and it draws bounding box around them so I suspect there is an AI that will do this.  I was originaly thinkign Runway.ml but there website doesnt make mention of these features.

 

Maybe someone else will add to the conversation for some additional help for you.
