There are many video editing apps available today that offer standard features such as trimming, adding text, and transitional effects. However, few offer the ability to blur the background or specific objects in a video.
This is an extremely handy feature and one of the most requested for video editing. Fortunately, Videoleap has got you covered and makes blurring videos effortless from your fingertips.
There are several instances where you may need to blur video aspects.
Sometimes you can capture an awesome video but there’s so much going on in the background that your subject gets lost. Using an app to blur background elements (or the whole background) can add clarity to your foreground and depth of field. This allows your subject to take center stage, creating a beautiful, professional-looking moving picture.
You may have accidentally captured something in the foreground or background of your video that you didn’t mean to. (Hey, it happens.) Videoleap can help you hide this in just a couple of taps.
Another reason you may want to blur video details is if important information is showing, whether this is on a building, legal document, or car registration plate. On the other hand, you may want to blur faces if the stars of your video wish to remain anonymous.
Either way, quickly protect privacy by applying a blur directly to the right spot while keeping the rest of the shot intact.
Trying to read text while an image is moving can be difficult, especially if there’s a lot going on in the background. Once you know how to blur parts of a video, you can blur the background of a particular clip that you plan to add text to. The text will then be easier to read during this clip.
Easily blur background elements or the entire scene using Videoleap by following 3 simple steps.
Download Videoleap from the App Store and sign up for a free 7-day trial if you haven’t already. Tap the plus button at the bottom of the screen to import your video.
Tap on ‘Effects’ on the bottom menu and then ‘Defocus.’ The blur effect will apply to the current clip you’re editing, and you can drag around the selection until you’re happy with where it sits. You can then tweak your selection in the below ways.
The possibilities are endless!
Once you’re happy with your masterpiece, tap the ‘Export’ button in the top right corner. If needed, amend your Export settings in terms of resolution and frames per second. Finally, tap ‘Save’ to upload it to your camera roll.
Trying to blur a certain object in your video? The process is just as straightforward as figuring out how to blur the background of a picture that’s moving, thanks to Videoleap.
When you first open the app, import your video using the plus button at the bottom of the screen.
Tap on ‘Glitch’ from the main toolbar and then ‘Pixelate.’ You can make adjustments to achieve your desired result in the following ways.
By default, the blur will apply to your entire video. If you want to apply to a designated section, tap the balloon in the editing screen above your film reel. Adjust the green sliding bar representing the effect so that it only covers your desired clip by tapping and dragging the arrows on either end.
You can remove the blur at any time just by holding down this balloon button and dragging it to the trash button that pops up.
A blur video app that enables you to highlight and fade away aspects of your content without overcomplicating the process is hard to find. Some video editors allow you to blur the background, or blur background aspects. Others let you blur objects. But it’s rare that you can perform all three actions using one tool—and fast.
Videoleap helps you get instant results all in one place, no matter what your skill level. Give it a try today to play, discover, and keep pushing the boundaries of your creativity.
