I just tried all 3 FX places (in 7.0d) and it's there in all of them.
Since Sony took over though, it's been called Sony Cookie Cutter.

I normally go to the fx tab and its there. The last time I used "cookie cutter" was when it was still Vegas 6. How can I get it back?

I can't think of any conceivable way you could have deleted it.
Select the FX button on an event or track. See if you can find it in that particular view.
Just for kicks, I tried deleting a plug in one of the views (hadn't ever tried this before) and couldn't do it.
If nothing else, do a reset of Vegas.

You think its the upgrade? Its now Vegas 7 right out of the box. Gonna update to 7e and see what happens.

Udated to 7e everything looks okay now. Strange.

Do you mind explaining a little how you blur faces with this filter? Or possibly you could direct me to a tutorial that makes it easy. Seems every method Ive come across didnt really work for me. Thanks!

PLace video on track one.
Place same video on track 2 and add blur to it.
When you play this you will just see the clear video from track 1.
Now place cookie cutter Fx on track 1 and create oval (or round etc) shape and place it over area you want blurred. Add a little blur to the edges of the cooke cutter and you have hidden your face on that porn video :>)

Cool! Thanks! Now, one more question. What if the face is moving alot? Is there a feasible way to blur a moving object? (Not a Penis! LOL)

You will need to use keyframes to control the movement of the cookie cutter.

Just read your tutorial and it makes sense now. Thanks! By the way, your tutorials are a God-send. I really appreciate your efforts.

I second that about Edwards newsletters. Excellent help for us newbies!

Edward, are you going to do any more? It's been awhile since the last one, unless I just didn't see the current ones...

I plan to do more. It's mainly been a matter of time. Things have been really busy since the last issue. I have another one started but just haven't gotten it finished yet.
