Fixing blurry video in post
on Aug 21, 2011 at 11:07:57 pm

just got back from a two camera shoot and camera 1, a Canon Rebel T2i, recorded blurry video. background is focused, subject is not. it is too bad but is there more that can be done other than the sharpen filter in FCP7?

I've played around with this a few times.

You can blur the background by applying a mask. Darken it a bit too. This'll take the viewers eye off the sharpness.

Then duplicate the clip and use an unsharpen filter on the duplicate which should be on the upper track of your timeline.

I've got pretty acceptable results but i guess it depends on how back the focus is.

I forgot to mention that I also adjusted the opacity of the upper track to suit.
