Blur Effects

AVS Video Editor offers three blur variations.

Blur

Blur effectBlur reduces contrast between adjacent pixels by lightening pixels next to well-defined edges and shadows, visually smoothing and softening the image.

In the Properties Area of the Video Effect window you can change the effect properties. The only property of the Blur effect available for setting is blur level.

Gaussian Blur

Gaussian Blur effectGaussian Blur uses a mathematical equation (a bell-shaped curve) to calculate the transition between adjacent pixels, resulting in most of the blurred pixels ending up in the middle range between the two original colors. The Gaussian Blur adds low-frequency detail and can produce a hazy effect.

In the Properties Area of the Video Effect window you can change the effect properties. The only property of the Gaussian Blur effect available for setting is size.

Motion Blur

Motion Blur effect Motion Blur gives the impression of motion in the image by adding directional and angle controls for the blurring process. You can choose an angle between -90° to 90° and a distance from 1 to 999 pixels to control the effects of the Motion Blur.

In the Properties Area of the Video Effect window you can change the effect properties. The properties of the Motion Blur effect available for setting are angle and distance.
