sets it to really black. But you can tell tell yuvinactive
to darken the area, or fill it with a certain color. It can
also make the content of the area unreadable, like extreme
softening of the area. Or copy the surrounding area into the
the specified area. You usually have to use the -i option
which sets the area in which yuvinactive will work. If no
additional option is given yuvinactive stet the area to
black. But you can use the -d -s -a -c options to

With this option the program
uses on pixel and averages the surrounding pixels with the
same color to make the original less readable. The number
tells the the program how much pixels around the original

the lines above and below the specified area for copying
them into the area.

option might work. yuvinactive is in the first state of
becoming a useful program.
