To make soft edges in Aura (2.0 or 2.5, other versions untested):
1) Create a new project.
2) Leave the base layer as alpha.
3) Load up the animation/image you want to make soft as a new layer.
4) Select all the video/stills in the layer. [double click the selection area]
5) Select Filters>Blur>Blur.
6) Select Apply as 'Image' and change to 'Opacity'
7) Set a Blur ammount as desired. [20 should be fine for a soft edge on video]
Thats it!!! Now you can make soft edges in Aura!!
Note: for logarithmic-looking soft edges, apply multiple times with a lesser value each time. (untested)
