Blurs Effect

Blurs Effect provides different types of blurs (Box, Gaussian, Median, Max, Min, Mode, Weighted Average) to be applied in various colorspace channels (RGB, HSL, YUV, YIQ). Use the included presets to get started.

You can download the Win or Mac trial version as well as a sample project to test it out. The watermark will be removed once you enter the activation code. The trial is full-featured except for the watermark.

This effect works with 8-bpc, 16-bpc, and 32-bpc color. The optimal usage will require 32-bpc and full resolution. In 32-bpc color, After Effects does not clip the video and allows the user to view any out-of-range data.
