The Blur filter efficiently blurs your video with control over the blur radius, while the Soft Focus filter can make your source footage dreamlike / romantic - you can put away those pantyhose! The Corner Out plugin is an experimental DVE transition implemented in OpenGL - over time, I hope to develop experience working with OpenGL for creating more complex DVE effects for the next-generation Kino plugin API.''
