Automatic Detection – Quick Start

Automatic Detection is designed to redact specific objects:

  1. Automatic Face/Head Detection: to detect and redact all faces in a video.
  2. Automatic Screen Detection: to detect and redact all computer, cellphone, and device screens in a video.
  3. Automatic License Plate Detection: to detect and redact all license plates in a video.
  4. Automatic Person Detection: to detect and redact all people in a video.
  5. Automatic Vehicle Detection: to detect and redact all vehicles in a video.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to use CaseGuard’s Automatic Detection mode to perfectly Redact Faces with a few clicks.

  1. In the lefthand Toolbar, choose for Automatic Face/Head Detection.
  2. From the Automatic Detection Popup, “What to Detect” section, Select what object(s) you want to detect by checking the box of the object. By default, the “Face/Head” is selected so we keep that checked for our example.
  3. From the Automatic Detection Popup, “Video Effects” section, Select Shape, Effect, and Effect Level.
  4. From the Automatic Detection Popup, “Options” section, Change Confidence & Classify (if needed).
  5. From the Automatic Detection Popup, Click “Start Now”.
  6. In the Object Detection Panel, you will see all the objects (faces) that are being detected. You can hover over the object to see the level of confidence the system is detecting that object.
  7. From the status bar, you can see the detection progress bar.
  8. The Effects timeline will show you the detection progress.
  9. On your video, you will see your Shape & Effect being applied automatically.
  10. When the detection is complete, optionally, from the player timeline, you can change the video speed. In our example above, we slowed it down because our video has some fast movement.
  11. From the player timeline click to check the detection on your video.
  12. When you see something that you want to update, from the player timeline click to pause your video.
  13. If you’d like to disable redaction from any of the detected objects, from the Object Detection Panel, click on over the detected object to disable the effect on that object.
  14. Click Process from the Shortcuts Bar or from the Task List Panel to process the file.
  15. Give your new file a name then click “Start Now”.
  16. Find your new redacted file in the Project Files Panel and play it again for review.
