Full Page Blur

  1. Open footage, and import it. I personally used a piece of stock footage from the insanely awesome Envato Elements.
  2. Go to Effects->Video Effects-> Blur & Sharpen. Choose on the many blurs in here. I used camera blur.
  3. Drag the blur onto your footage.
  4. Go to Effect Controls, and increase the blur amount.
  5. If you want to animate the blur, go to the stopwatch, click it, and adjust the values over time.

  1. Open footage and import it. I again used the awesome Envato Elements to find a piece of stock footage that would work.
  2. Go to Effects->Video Effects -> Blur & Sharpen. Choose the Gaussian Blur.
  3. Drag the blur onto your footage.
  4. Go to Effect Controls.
  5. Use the mask tool to create a mask around the object you wish to blur.
