View Full Version : Blurring behind the alpha of a footage

06 June 2012, 05:33 PM
I have a background footage and a glass panel which will be placed in the front of the entire composite. I want to make the front glass panel like frost glass and I want it to blur the background image. Panel has alpha channel rendered.

I'm not much of a compositing guy so I wonder how can it be handled in any one of the below software:

Adobe premiere
Adobe After Effects

thank you

Duplicate the layer, blur the top one, crop it/ mask it of. Works in any of the 3 tools.

... crop it/ mask it of....

And how that is done is actually what I'm asking?

Those are pretty straight forward instructions. Go read up on how to do that in AE. It'll take 2 minutes in the help menu.
