  • Edius 6: how can I bring into focus an out of focus video?

    Hi, I have a video where there are some seconds lightly out of focus. In Edius 6 is there a filter that can a little bit improve that important video?
    Thanks

      You can do some things that can give the subjective impression of improved focus/sharpness, or perhaps mask it with some implied motion; lighting effect, or a cutaway. but out of focus is out of focus and a reshoot is about the only full solution.

        This is absolutely correct - there is no filter which can put into a pictures/soundtrack something which isn't there.

        What filters change is the perception. We recently had some Single-8 film tranbsfer red and used the sharpness filter at 100%. In some scenes it helped, by identifying the edge of the subjects and hardening it ie deleting some of the fuzziness. In other instances it simply messed it up - and in all sequences it added noise.

        As long as you remember the first caveat, filters can be useful, but silk purses from sow's ears, filters do not make.

          I've had some success with the Mask filter, blurring the background and adding sharpness to the subject.
