Blur without going outside the mask boundary
on Sep 8, 2018 at 1:59:27 pm

I have to blur some text on video but I need it to not blur anything outside of the mask boundary. I tried a couple of blur effects including Gaussian but they all seem to go beyond. The reason is that I have other text right below it that literally touches the text I need to blur, hence my post.

Thanks for any pointers.

Without an example, based on what you are saying, put the text to be blurred on its own layer.

Alternately, use an ADJUSTMENT layer with the mask and blur, that will constrain the blur to the masked area.
