Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: BlurChroma

BlurChroma

In the S_Blurs Plugin.

Separates the source into luminance and chrominance components, blurs the chrominance and/or the luminance independently, and recombines them. You can also scale the luma and chroma independently to enhance or remove either.

Inputs:

Source: The clip to be processed.

Parameters:

Load Preset: Push-button .
Brings up the Preset Browser to browse all available presets for this effect.

Save Preset: Push-button .
Brings up the Preset Save dialog to save a preset for this effect.

Blur Chroma: Default: 0.5, Range: 0 or greater.
The amount to blur the chrominance. This parameter can be adjusted using the Blur Chroma Widget.

Blur Luminance: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
The amount to blur the luminance. This parameter can be adjusted using the Blur Luma Widget.

Blur Rel: X & Y,   Default: [1 1], Range: 0 or greater.
The relative horizontal and vertical blur widths. Set Blur Rel X to 0 for a vertical-only blur, or set Blur Rel Y to 0 for a horizontal-only blur. This parameter can be adjusted using the Blur Chroma Widget.

Filter: Popup menu,  Default: Gauss .
The type of convolution filter to blur with.
Box: uses a rectangular shaped filter.
Triangle: smoother, uses a pyramid shaped filter.
Gauss: smoothest, uses a gaussian shaped filter.

Scale Chroma: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the chrominance by this amount. Increase for more intense colors, decrease for muted colors.

Scale Luminance: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the brightness of the result.

Offset Result: Default: 0, Range: any.
Adds this gray value to the result (or subtracts if negative). 0 has no effect, .5 is middle gray, and 1 is white.

Subpixel: Check-box,  Default: on, Shared .
Enables blurring by subpixel amounts. Use this for smoother animation of the Blur Chroma or Blur Luminance parameters.

Mix With Source: Default: 0, Range: 0 to 1, Shared .
Interpolates between the blurred result (0) and the original source (1). 0.1 can give a nice misty effect since it mixes only a little of the source in.

Params2:

Params3:

Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Brings up the Mocha window for tracking footage and generating masks.

Blur Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Blurs the Mocha Mask by this amount before using. This can be used to soften the edges or quantization artifacts of the mask, and smooth out the time displacements.

Mocha Opacity: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 1, Shared .
Controls the strength of the Mocha mask. Lower values reduce the intensity of the effect.

Invert Mocha: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
If enabled, the black and white of the Mocha Mask are inverted before applying the effect.

Show Mocha Only: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
Bypass the effect and show the Mocha Mask itself.

Bypass Mocha: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
Ignore the Mocha Mask and apply the effect to the entire source clip.
