Any editor or plugin available to make a clip OUT OF FOCUS?

Edit your videos. Upload them to the web. Burn blu-rays and DVDs. Colors look odd maybe? Fix'em in post, then!

Any editor or plugin available to make a clip OUT OF FOCUS?

Postby ashfaqultaposh » 22 Jul 2012 13:11

Hey guys,

I was wondering if any of you know any video editing software or plugin which can make few frames out of focus!

Look at this video and you will understand better what I am talking about

I know a plugin called PHYX Defocus for Final Cut Pro which does this but its 50 USD. I was looking for something cheaper or preferably for free.

I would really appreciate if you can help me to find a solution.

Thanks a lot.

In Premiere, it's an effect called Gaussian Blur. I assume it's in other editors as well.

In Avid Media Composer, it is "Blur" (in "Image" catgory).

There's also a Gaussian Blur effect in Final Cut Pro X.

Use keyframes to change effect parameters along your timeline - more or less blur (although I haven't had an opportunity to test that myself).

there is also a Gaussian Blur filter in Sony Vegas Pro, too.

pretty standard functionality in most software editing packages.
