Chapter 11. Effects in Action > Using the Compound Blur Effect

Using the Compound Blur Effect

The Compound Blur effect is a little less straightforward than the other Blur and Sharpen effects, largely because it's a compound effect. (Compound effects are discussed in more detail in Chapter 10, “Effect Fundamentals.”) Like all compound effects, Compound Blur requires a target layer (the layer you want to blur) and a source layer (which serves as the blur layer). The blur layer can be any grayscale image (bright areas cause more blur; dark areas cause less blur). For the most predictable results, the blur layer should have the same dimensions as the target layer.
