Tilt-shift blurs create the illusion of depth of field, along with other interesting visual effects, by emulating in software a special kind of camera lens called a “tilt/shift lens.”
What’s interesting to me is that we can emulate the effect of these lenses in Final Cut.
When applied to high-wide shots, this creates the illusion of looking at a model, as you can see from the screen shot above. However, we can also use this during post to emulate depth-of-field. What this does, essentially, is apply a variable amount of blur to different portions of the frame.
Final Cut includes a tilt-shift effect, but they didn’t call it that. They called it: Focus. Here’s how it works.
