It's not possible. A generic blur effect relies on a function which smooths out pixel values within a specified radius. A mask combines the value of a pixel in the top layer with the pixel of the layer beneath, modulated by the corresponding alpha value of that pixel in the top layer. So, in short a blur is a 'lateral' function, whereas layer compositing is ...

Hit 's' that brings up scale, then right-click Scale to bring up the Edit-Value dialog, then set units to pixels.

I found out - .value after slider.effect("Slider Control").property("Slider") and it works. var a = slider.effect("Slider Control").property("Slider").value

To directly answer your question, where Rotoscoping is concerned, it is simply the task of masking out, or cutting a hole in a moving image, for every frame. Technically in almost any software capable of Rotoscoping, It is achieved by using a spline connected by a set of points that conforms and deforms each frame in your footage, to match the shape/outline ...

Here's one way to do it. I'll assume you have basic motion tracking knowledge already for the sake of brevity. AfterEffects Turn on 3D space for your footage layer. Track the player in your footage. I'm going to guess that you'll have to do a lot of this by hand, but there's not really a faster way to track a player like this. Apply the track to a Null, ...

Had the same problem. Put a black solid in the background. It worked for me.

You won't be able to create a clip that can 'blur any layer underneath' when placed in other applications. You can just blur assets from within AE and export them out.

This is not possible, because the blur effect needs the underlying video as input. You can either create the blur effect in Sony Vegas without the need for After Effects, or you can (for more complex effects) import the video into After Effects, add your effects, render the result as video, and import it into Vegas. As you can see the second option takes ...

This tutorial can help you: You will find there how to make dotted effect from scratch (use outlines of the map). Then you shall add some key-frames for animation. To make dots appear more random, you can use Fractal Noise as animated mask. Good luck!

it seems to me that you are trying to overwrite an existing file. Try to change the name from your file (Test 1.mov) to something different and that is not already used on your Exports folder. Let me know if it worked. Cheers!
