A new step has been made on YouTube, and it doesn't have anything to do with subscription services that no one wanted. Instead, you can now blur whatever you want in a video.

Now this might seem strange to some people, because YouTube has allowed you to blur faces in videos since 2012, but that was where the blurring ended, for whatever reason. Now the Google-owned video sharing website is allowing you to blur out specific objects and/or people as they move throughout the video.

This will be simple for anyone who has ever worked with YouTube uploading features. All you have to do is click on the "Blurring" effects tab, select "Custom" blurring, and then "Edit." From there, it is simple enough to drag and drop a box over whatever it is that you want to blur. From that point, the objects will automatically get blurred as it moves throughout your video.

If you don't want that blurred area to move, you can "Lock" it in place on the video. You can also blur out multiple areas in the video by just creating new blocks and dragging and dropping, according to PC Mag.

Once you have created the blurred box, it is really easy to click and drag to move the video in different places, or resize it. You can also set the timeline for when the blurring starts and when it ends.

The old school blurring effects still exist as well, just go into the Blurring tab and then select "Blur Faces" and then "Apply."

In related news, the most followed YouTuber, PewDiePie, is getting his own original series and three films for the YouTube Red service, which is to be entitled Scare PewDiePie.
