The wikihelp mentions that gaussian blurs should get transferred into an axis blur when you bring an XML in. I tried a simple XML with just one clip and a gaussian blur on it (with keyframes) and there is an axis effect created on the resulting timeline in Smoke, but no keyframes are set for the blur value.

Anyone get this to work?

Hey Roger,

If you expand the clip in the timeline, is there anything in the clip comments.

You could also ALT+CLICK in the clip for its information.

there is a comment "FCP Filter of type Gaussian Blur not supported, replaced by soft axis". However in the axis effect enabled on the track, there is no blur values or keyframes.

Hi Roger,

That is correct. Smoke does not correctly know how to translate the values of the Blur so it adds a softFX axis to the clip so it can be blurred but the animation is not translated across.
