Duplicate Scale Blur Effect
Duplicate a clip and put it behind the top layer and blur it. You can scale, rotate, and position the top clip. Drop shadow to help it stand out from the background.
This effect is perfect for when you have a picture or clip that doesn’t fit perfectly into your aspect ratio. Don’t have stupid black bars on the sides! Duplicate Scale and Blur that badboy into the background.
This effect template works great as a plugin for FCPX and can be opened and easily customized in Motion.
