Hi, i've been lately messing up again a bit with Vegas and After effects and this time i came across something really bothering in vegas the radial blur effect in vegas u can choose the "Proportional mode" wich gives a sort of blur in the edges leaving the center unblured and it looks better. But in AE i can't seem to get the same look since what it does it's pushin the whole image forward. (If u understand what i mean)
So i was wondering if there's anyway to recreate that radial blur in After effects.!
Duplicate the layer, and turn the top one off.
Apply Radial Blur to the bottom layer, get it looking right, and don't worry about the center.
Turn on the top layer and mask it using an elliptical mask.
Double-click on the mask to use the Free Transform tool for positioning and adjusting the mask.
Open the layers mask controls, and add feathering to it.
Adjust the feather, mask shape and size to taste.
