Tilt-shift in AVS Video Editor

What is Tilt-shift

Tilt-shift is a technology that blurs corners of your video. It focuses viewers‘ attention on certain details. Professional photographers will think of tilt-shift lenses, but it is also a visual effect.

When is Tilt-shift used

Video makers may apply the tilt-shift effect to draw attention of the audience to important elements of the image. Look how the American insurance company Allstate used it in their TV commercial:

The message is clear. This video helps us focus on everything we need insurance for — cars, motorbikes, boats, real estate, and people‘s life.

Another way to use tilt-shift is timelapse. Such videos show quick motions on the same place. See the timelapse by Filippo Rivetti with blurred top and bottom. Looks vibrant, right?

Directors use tilt-shift in their films. It can express author‘s emotions and symbolize ideas as in The Social Network (2010) by David Fincher.
