Method

This node performs a blur operation in frequency space using a Fast Fourier Ttransform (FFT). This allows any size of blur to take the same amount of processing time – even for huge blur kernels – at the cost of the conversion of the image into frequency space and back, which is constant for a given size of image. This makes this process useful for performing very large blurs much more efficiently than using an iterative blur with the Blur node.

Attributes

Name Description
Active Turn the effect on or off. Values < 0.1 will turn the effect off, and deferred rendering must be on.
Blend Amount Changes the opacity of the new effect over the original image.
Blend Mode (RGB) Change how the generated effect blends with the parent image RGB.
Blend Mode (Alpha) Change how the generated effect blends with the parent image alpha.
Blur Shape Texture Shape the blur based on a texture.
Downsample Iterations Number of times the image is downsampled
Blur Size The size of the blur.
Threshold The luminance threshold at which a pixel will contribute to the effect.

Affect Channels

Select which of the RGBA colour channels are affected by the effect.
