Use shape to blur
on Mar 30, 2009 at 5:25:51 pm

Howdy Gang,

I need to do something a bit simpler than I'm doing it now. I want a simple rectangle shape to be placed on one side of my screen, blurring out what moves under it. Right now, I'm using a series of duplicate layers and masks and blur fliters in order to get the desired look:



This, as you can imagine, is a bit of a pain, and seems bassackwards. I would like to just add a shape to my top layer in order to blur the stuff that's below it without all the duplicating of layers. Any clues on how to do this?

Cheers,
Stone

Looks like the Advanced Box Blur from FxFactory is what I need!
