Hi,

Ive already posted in the Mac Section but maybe its a platform independent problem:

I have a project with a Pal DV Video, as background, and some 3d objects rendered as a composition.
I need to render them together because I use glow on some objects.

By using the Soft Filter setting in Camera the Background Video gets blurred too. Otherwise the handbook says: "Soft Filter affects only objects. Any background images will not be affected by the softening effect."

Ive tested on LW 7.5c and 8 (MacOSX).

Thanks,

Christian

Nope the background does not blur.

Yes and no.

I nailed it down with the help of Ben Vost from Newtek-Europe.

It does not blur with still images but it does blur if you use a movie (at least tested with a QT Movie) in the background. So workaround is to use a sequence of still images.
