jitter object for blur

    May 08 2010 | 8:33 pm
    I'm looking for an jitter object that does blurring effects like the focus of a camera. I searched quiet a while and only find motion blur stuff. Any advice?
    Thanx Florian

      There aren't really good cpu blurring effects, so you'll have to look at the open gl shaders. There are guassian blur effects there. You won't be able to make things look quite like you're defocusing a camera..thats much more complex than a simple blur because it has to do with depth, but guassian blurs are probably what you're looking for
      For an example, go to your max 5 folder, then Examples->jitter examples->render->slab-helpers->convolution and try out either cf.blur or cf.gaussian.2p
      These will be much faster than something you could dream up with cpu..i never got much mileage out of jit.fastblur in terms of really dramatic blurring
