Directional blur at edge of frame issue
on Mar 8, 2011 at 7:45:01 pm

In AE CS5 is there any way to get a directional blur (with controllable angle) that can go right to the edge of the frame without generating that soft boarder problem that is normally fixed by repeating edge pixels if one was using the box blur filter.

I realise I could work on a larger layer size to begin with so the edges of the layer are actually outside the comps viewable area but it feels like there should be a slightly more elegant method for this.

Thanks

Like applying Directional Blur to an Adjustment Layer that's larger than the size of the comp/target layer?

What I meant was I could apply the directional blur to an oversized layer (which contains the pixels you want to blur).
An adjustment layer would blur everything bellow which may be undesired and increasing its scale will not fix the edge problem anyway.
Whilst using an oversized layer will solve the problem, I was just wondering if there was a more correct solution I may have overlooked.
