    I need some help with my video - need to blur some footage.




      I was wondering if somebody could help me out with my video. I've got some video footage downloaded from the internet (with permission, of course) and I was wondering if there is any way I could blur the clip and then have it slowly fade into focus. I know how to blur the video (the Gaussian blur effect), but I basically want it to look like I've filmed the footage myself and I'm slowly turning the focus wheel until the image is in focus.


      Obviously it's quite easy to do in-camera but for my film I needed footage of animals and wasn't able to film any of my own so I needed to source footage online. It's really imperative to my production that I get this blur thing working so if anyone can please explain to me the easiest way to do it then I would be extremely thankful! (That's if it is possible at all... I sure hope so)


      I've searched online but so far I've only been able to find videos explaining how to blur a small section of the image (e.g. blurring out logos, faces, etc)


      Thanks a lot
