NextPreviousHomeIdea for cool text focus effect

John (ProComGer) | 6 years ago | 9 comments | 2,638 views

Hi community,

I have found this cool effect on YouTube and I am not sure how to do this in BluffTitler. It looks pretty cool. If this feature doesn't exist right now: Maybe it can be implemented?


Best regards

You can use the blur.fx effect for this.

The FilmGrain.fx effect gives a more original effect.

Both effects can be found in the MEDIA/EFFECTS/FILTERS folder that comes with the installer.

Choose the CHANGE EFFECT button to apply the effect to the active layer.

Hi Michiel,

thanks! I will have a try :).

One question about the technology: Is it theoretically possible to include faked camera focus into a 3D real time software (such as BluffTitler)? I like this DSLR effect and I thought that it might be possible to create on the computer. The software in the video above also uses fake blur, as far as I know. I was thinking about this because giving every title a blur.fx and adjusting the settings one by one is more complicated than giving a focus blur fx to the camera which enables the camera to focus on objects.

Only suggestions. I am not sure whether this is possible for real time editing or not.

Do you mean a DOF effect?

Hi Michiel,

exactly. The depth of field is what I mean.
And as far as I can see you have already put this on your 2do list ;-).
Here is another example picture:


I don't know whether this can be rendered in real time software as BluffTitler, because Blender needs about 50 minutes for 10 sec. complex animation with depth of field.

By the way, Michiel, what do you think about my final idea to reduce the complexity of custom physics and overriding physics for single key frames?

We developed BluffTitler to escape having to drag red markers in abstract diagrams.

what do you think about this alternative?

Next to the Easy and Pro versions, it looks like we need a John version ;^)

;^). Please excuse me, Michiel. I didn't want to drive you crazy or see you getting angry. This idea was also supported by the user "misterbrains" and I hoped to find a good solution which combines all the ideas in the easiest way.

You have to keep in mind that this physics window would only appear if you double click on a key frame to do some extra settings. Other users who do not want or do not need these functions simply don't have to double klick on a key frame :). I see this more as an extra feature and not as a replacement for the standard physics box with "constant speed", "damper", etc.

I think that this idea is much easier than these examples:

But it would push BluffTitler to a new level of simple and fantastic real time editing.
