Inputs

 

 

Input

Description

Original

The original image that is to be blurred.

Blur Radius

The red channel of this input controls the radius of the blur at that point, with brighter shades of red leading to more blur.  If this input is left empty, then 100% radius will be assumed at every point.

Driver

The red channel of this input controls the directionality of the blur.  Areas that have similar shades of red are blurred together more, while areas with differing shades have a lesser influence on each other.

 

 

 

Properties

 

 

Property

Description

Radius

Controls the overall strength of the blur.  This value is multiplied into the values of the Blur Radius input.

Threshold

Specifies how different shades of the Driver input must be for those parts of the image to not be blurred together.  Lower values lead to more pronounced directionality, while larger values lead to less biased blur that will more closely resemble a Gaussian Blur.

Seamless

Controls whether the resulting blur will be seamlessly repeatable.
