how to blur multiple scenes in a video

Jul 1, 2013 6:07 AM

I want to blur multiple short scenes in a large video file. How can I do that with Adobe Premiere Pro.

    Place an adjustment layer above all the clips and add a blur.

    Or nest and add it to the nest or

    do one clip with the blur, select rest and Paste Attribute.

    Probably even more ways to do that.

    Another method worth trying next time is to skip the razoring part and use keyframing in the Effects Control Panel to bring the blur in and out.

    1) Apply Video>GaussianBlur to the clip in the timeline

    2) in Effects Control Panel, click the stopwatch to enable keyframing

    3) scrub the clip to a point where you want to increase or decrease the blur

    4) click the Add/Remove Keyframe button

    5) adjust the Blurriness setting

    6) repeat Steps 3-5 for the rest of the clip.


    One thing I like about using keyframing like this is that the effect ramps in and out thanks to Bezier curves. Of course, you can achieve the same thing with your method, but only with additional steps for each segment.
