    Soft focus FX ?

    Hi,

    I've shot some pieces-to-camera, with people in front of a white background.  Titles & graphics are to be added.  The lighting set-up includes gels (thin tracing paper) over the lights in order to capture soft focus.  The end-result is pretty good.  However, I wondered if there is an effect in MC that can just do just a bit more to soften people's faces, including the pores?

    Thank you,

    DC

    Sort of depends on how YOU define soft focus.  Have you played with putting a blur effect on the clip and giving really small settings?

    Or dupe the clip above, blur it a bit and then take that clips transparency down ...

    Hi,

    I haven't played around wityh anything as elsewhere at the moment, though will need to shortly.  In the past I've used an Avid FX filter for sharpening (Unsharp Mask).  Is there, say, a counter-reverse setting, or something like, available?

    Thanks,

    Daniel
