Logos and faces can pose a challenge during post-production when the need arises to blur them out. Blurring the image becomes necessary to avoid unintended promotion or potential legal implications, or when you need to protect someone’s identity.

While filming a reality show, where numerous critical production elements demand attention, logos frequently slip by unnoticed. Whether displayed on shirts or showcased on signs or banners, these logos tend to fly under the radar and come back to bite you.

Blurring logos is a widespread norm in television shows, used to safeguard privacy and adherence to legal obligations. Including a company logo in your final version without proper permissions can result in serious legal complications.”

Manually locating every frame where the inconvenient logo or face appears can be time-consuming and cost you significant hours of video editing or delay other creative tasks. Thankfully, Axle AI offers the perfect solution.

With Axle AI’s intuitive AI technology, locating logos and faces becomes a breeze. Simply select a few clips or images featuring the face in question to train the system, apply AI analysis with a simple click, and let the system effortlessly identify all other clips where that logo appears.

By eliminating the need for manually checking each clip one by one, you’ll be amazed at the savings in time and effort. 

But that’s not all – this remarkable feature extends beyond faces and covers logos and objects as well. Continue reading to discover more!

Maintaining Compliance and Privacy

If you pay attention to reality shows, you’ll notice that numerous individuals in the background are intentionally blurred. This is usually because they haven’t provided consent or signed an image release.

With the Axle Faces feature, you can easily identify the points in the timeline where all unknown faces appear in a video.  This allows you to narrow down the key footage where faces have to be blurred.  In addition, if you have some examples of key people who have not signed releases and want to find them specifically, you can train Axle Faces about the individual faces you want to locate in the timeline, and it will display all the frames of the video where these faces appear.

Furthermore, Axle Objects offers the same features but this time with specific object recognition.
