I want to have one of my characters in a movie have a short first-person point of view bit. When it's in first person, I want to get that "blurred" effect, that many characters have after they've been knocked unconscious, and have just woken up. His head will drift around a bit, and I want it to be blurred during this, and then I want his eyelids to close and then open again and have everything come into focus. I know that it probably has something to do with layers, but I don’t know how to work the eyelids closing or the blurriness. Could anyone give me a hand with this? Thanks!
You could just animate a couple of black shape layers.
Or you could make a black solid and use the CC Jaws effect.
