Scrambles the pixels of the source input within an area determined by the
Diffuse Amount. Use the Blur Rel X and Y parameters for a more horizontal
or vertical diffuse direction. The pixelated look of this effect depends
on the image resolution, so it is recommended to test your final resolution
In the Sapphire Stylize effects submenu.
Source: The current layer. The clip to be processed.
Matte: Defaults to None. If provided, this determines which areas of the
image receive diffusing pixels. Gray values internally scale the
Diffuse Amount parameter rather than simply cross-fading between the
effect and the original source. This can allow more continuous
results at the matte edges and more detailed control over the
This input can be affected using the Blur Matte, Invert Matte,
or Matte Use parameters.
- Diffuse Amount: Default: 36, Range: 0 or greater.
The amplitude of the pixel diffusion process.
- Rel Amount: X & Y, Default: [1 1], Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the relative horizontal and vertical amounts of diffusion.
X & Y, Popup menu, Default: [Reflect Reflect].
Determines the method for accessing outside the borders of the
- No: gives black beyond the borders.
- Tile: repeats a copy of the image.
- Reflect: repeats a mirrored copy. Edges are often less
visible with this method.
- Blur Matte: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
Blurs the Matte input by this amount before using. This
can provide a smoother transition between the matted and unmatted
areas. It has no effect unless the Matte input is provided.
- Invert Matte: Check-box, Default: off.
If on, inverts the Matte input so the effect is applied
to areas where the Matte is black instead of white. This has no effect
unless the Matte input is provided.
- Matte Use:
Popup menu, Default: Luma.
Determines how the Matte input channels are used to make
a monochrome matte.
- Luma: the luminance of the RGB channels is used.
- Alpha: only the Alpha channel is used.
- Show Diffuse Amount: Check-box, Default: off.
Turns on or off the screen user interface for adjusting the
Matte Use parameter.This parameter only appears on AE and Premiere,
where on-screen widgets are supported.
