It's easy to blur or pixilate out an area using Final Cut Pro X.

Start by editing a single clip to a new project.

Then right click on the clip within the project and choose show video animation.

Then make sure the clip segment stays selected by clicking on it.

Next, press command 5 to bring forward the Effects Browser window.

At the bottom of the Effects Browser window, type the word censor in the search box.

Double click on the Censor Effect.

Now press command 4 to bring forward the inspector window.

Within the video tab, you should see that the censor effect has been applied.

Make sure the playhead indicator is parked at the front of your clip segment.

Then move over to the viewer window and adjust the censor effect so it's over the person's face.

Also, adjust the radius of the censored area to your liking.

Now move over the center parameter for the censor effect.

Press the add-keyframe button for the center parameter.

Advance forward a few frames using the right arrow key on your keyboard.

Then click on the add keyframe button again to add another keyframe.

Each time you do this, you see the keyframes within the video animation area of the clip segment.

Repeat these steps until you are finished.

Okay, fantastic!

Now you have the basics of using the censor effect within Final Cut Pro X.
