How to Get a Blurred Background on Your Video

When you begin recording, select ‘Cinematic Blur’ in the settings, it will be automatically applied when the recording finishes.
If you’ve already recorded your video, then select ‘Cinematic Blur’ from the AI Assistant in the bottom right corner of the Video Editor.
Once you’re happy with the video, choose which format you want to export in and download your file.

How AI Blurring Improves Your Videos

Blur Backgrounds Easily

No need for time-consuming post production with our Cinematic Blur feature, it’s as easy as flipping a switch. You can turn it on before you record a video or add it afterwards in the Video Editor.

Record from Anywhere

Your usual recording space might look great, but if you’re recording on the road you might not have an ideal background. Video blurring is perfect for creating a professional look anywhere.

Create Premium Videos

Adding blur to your background doesn’t just hide things that you don’t want viewers to focus on, it also gives your video a premium feel by adding ’bokeh’ - a depth and visual appeal to your images.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you blur out the background of a video?
Blurring the background of a video is easy, just like when you do a video call, it’s as simple as clicking a button. The finished video recording will blur your background, de-emphasizing what’s in the room, putting the focus on the speaker.
Is there a way to blur part of a video?
Podcastle’s Cinematic Blur feature uses AI to automatically detect the focus of the video and then blur out the rest. This makes it really easy to blur part of a video without any knowledge of video editing. Simply record your video, select Cinematic Blur and the blurring will happen.
How do I manually blur the background?
Blurring the background of a video manually is possible, but with AI technology it’s now possible to switch blurring on and off whenever you want. It’s quicker, requires less technical knowledge and gives you professional looking video content.
What is the ‘bokeh effect’?
Bokeh, pronounced as "boh-kay," originates from the Japanese word "boke," meaning blur or haze. It’s essentially the aesthetic quality of the out-of-focus areas in an image, characterized by the way the lens renders points of light not in focus. It can be achieved with high-end cameras, but also with AI technology like Podcastle’s Cinematic Blur.
Will blurring the background affect the quality of my video?
No, blurring the background of your video using Podcastle's Cinematic Blur feature does not compromise the overall quality of your video. Our AI-powered technology ensures that the blurring effect seamlessly integrates with your video while preserving the sharpness and clarity of the main subject.
