I was wondering how to make this blurred overlay effect in the beginning of her video...
So far I have a duplicated clip - one is the regular clip, the other is the same clip (stacked above it) playing at the same time and it is a COMPOSITE SHOT.
In that composite shot I have selected a rectangular mask and applied the blurred effect.
1. I can't seem to have the blurred section with clean cut edges. The blur goes out of the mask section boundaries. I have a screenshot but don't know how to post it here
2.Can you make this tiny drop shadow effect on the mask to make it look like like it has a bit of thickness?
3. Is there a way to create a template-like composite shot, or do you have to always stack the duplicated clip and make it into a composite shot every time? Is it possible to have just a composite shot with just the effects that, when placed over one clip, makes the given effect?
