Can someone make a censor box that can be streched on the timeline?

This was suggested a very long time ago, but we all came to a consensus that the results wouldn't be satisfactory (because AlamDV2 doesn't allow for the alteration of source pixels). It appears that most censor boxes we see on TV work by enlarging and then scrambling the pixels, creating a messy mosaic. AlamDV2 can't do that.

The best way would be to use a simple black box, in which case, I believe there is already one available smile

I'm sure someone else or myself could re-make it longer.
