That is more or less surface blur, but without exposing all the controls.
Also, round tripping the data through Camera Raw will be much slower.
Sure Chris, but the surface blur takes ages to process high resolution images.
It's nice that Adobe has made Camera Raw available as a filter, and It's great that you're sharing a technique - but I just want to say that I for one don't much like overly (artificially) smooth skin. Somewhere, someone started a trend that in photos of people (women especially) smooth is considered better, and more smooth is more better. Now we have as a result almost nothing but plastic people pictures. But whatever the market will bear, I guess.
Anyway, nice combination of Photoshop features. It could make a nice action.
A mechanical comment about the video: You apparently have a key assigned to Image - Apply Image; it's not obvious how you invoked that from the video.
Also, there's an issue I can see with using Camera Raw that way... It leaves halos near edges that Surface Blur does not.
Sure you're right, and thanks for comments:)
It seems the video is removed.
Which filter within the ACR did you use?
