* selectively blur only part of your clip
* independent values for horizontal and vertical blur!
* blur sizes from 5x5 to 50x50 pixels
* special, experimental finite-state machine algorithm (as if you cared...)
Gauss blur algorithms are a proven method for humbling your processor(s), and are not suitable for people faint of heart. Although we use above mentioned experimental (read: cool) finite-state algorithm for blurring (which gives us a 2x-5x speed boost over more traditional algorithms), the plug-in is a CPU hog. so if you want to 50x50 gaussblur your mother-in-law from your half-hour wedding video, make sure have the time - or one of those super-clusters.
? what should I use it for?
use this plug-in whenever you need to ?unsharpen? (i.e. blur) a part of your clip, be it for special effects (for further post-production), soft horizontal or vertical motion blur, to protect the guilty, or to help focus other parts of your clip.
