Have you ever wanted to blur something on CapCut? We’re seeing the practice all the time on video-sharing platforms like YouTube and TikTok, and it’s actually doable with the video editing app CapCut. Here in this post, you’ll find the step-by-step guides on how to blur a whole or part of a video. Moreover, the steps to blur video background are also introduced.
The use of video blurring effects in CapCut can be extensive and creative. Not only can you give privacy or a sense of mystery to the individuals in the footage, but you can also blur the background or the unwanted part of the video, in a bid to get rid of distractions, and let your audience focus more on the main scene. And if you’re doing a video commentary, then video blurring is great for giving the captions more legibility.
To get started, you need CapCut app installed on your phone. If you haven’t got CapCut app already, you can find it from Google Play Store or Apple Store. Moreover, if you intend to edit videos with CapCut app on PC, please see how to use CapCut on PC.
To make a video blurry on CapCut, first launch CapCut app on your mobile phone. Then create a new project, and hit Add to import the footage you intend to blur from your camera roll.
From the lower panel, click to choose Effects option from the editing options, and then Video Effect, which covers a wide range of video effects.
Now what we should do is to find and select the blur effect. Go to the Basic category, and look for the Blur effect. There are multiple blur effects available such as Motion Effect and Slanted Blur, here we’ll go with Blur.
Once you’ve hit the blur option, the Adjust option will pop up for us to change the duration of the blur effect, which indicates the parts in which the blur effect is applied. If you intend to blur the entire video, drag the handlebar to the right.
Hit the check button to add the blur effect and return to the workplace. As you can see from the screenshot, you can further adjust the blur duration in the timeline. When ready, go to the upper-right side to export your blurred video.
At times, we do not want the entire scene to be blurred, but only a part of it. In that case, we have to go about another way. By adding and blurring a video overlay, you get to blur out a part of a scene in CapCut. The simplest steps are as follows.
Occasionally, we may also need to blur the background of a video, instead of blurring the object in the video. In that way, the object in front of the background will be more stressed. To do so, the method is slightly different, but it still can be done from the CapCut app. In the following, I’ll step by step show you how to blur a video background in CapCut.
CapCut is so versatile, isn’t it? Now that we’re already here, I hope the methods are helpful, and you have benefited from this post and learned how to blur a whole video, a part of a video, or the background of a video. Now it’s time for sharing and impressing your friends and followers!
