How to bulk apply full frame effect to media files


The Full Frame Effect feature, within CaseGuard Studio, applies Full-screen redactions to multiple videos or images in one operation.  This feature is especially useful for users needing to blur every frame in a video while keeping the audio untouched.

This feature serves users handling videotapes of suspect interviews, where the goal is to shield faces and any identifying features from the public while retaining the audio. Instead of waiting for the AI to detect and censor all identifying features, employing the Full Frame Effect can simplify the redaction process. It is important to note that this is applicable only if the content of the video is not in question- solely the audio.
