Lyric Soft Blur

Soft Blur

Lyric Soft Blur is a stylizing filter that produces a soft-focus effect, in which the image has both detail and blur at the same time. Unlike other soft-focus filters, it uses a blurred mask to control the blending of a blurred copy of the source image, giving more subtle effects than a simple transparency-based blend. It also includes 3 blending modes to give neutral, light and dark soft-focus effects.

The Lyric Soft Blur filter includes a set of effect controls that are common across all Lyric effect filters. For a detailed description of these controls, please see the Common Effect Controls documentation.

Additionally, all Lyric Effect filters can be applied through mattes or masks to constrain the filter effect to particular areas of the image. For background information on mattes and masks, please refer to the Lyric Matte Primer.

The Blur slider controls the blur radius of the soft-focus layer and its blending mask.

The Blend Mode dropdown menu selects between 3 soft-focus layer blending schemes, Neutral, Lighten or Darken.

Blend Amount controls the density of the soft-focus layer, low values make it more transparent and subtle, high values increase the density up to the point of hiding all detail in the original source image.

The Effect Controls section is a set of common controls that are documented on the Common Effect Controls page. They can be used to achieve masked and other specialized filter effects.
