If you want to record a video with bokeh effect using an Android smartphone, we are going to show you how to do it. In many smartphones, we already have the bokeh effect available.
This is an effect that gives a more professional and attractive look to the videos we record, although it depends a lot on the smartphone whether the result is more or less credible or acceptable.
What is the bokeh effect in a video?
In recent years with the advent of smartphones with multiple rear cameras, the bokeh photography mode has become very popular. This basically simulates the blurring of the scene behind the portrait subject. This effect can be achieved in different ways, and basically depends on the type of camera we have.
There are some phones that achieve this effect by the action of their lenses, but many do it simply by using post-processing, or real-time processing of the image that blurs the background. Many manufacturers have these types of effects in their cameras, and they are related to artificial intelligence functions.
How to get the best result?
In addition to recording with this blur effect, we must keep in mind that when we record this type of video there are some parameters that we must follow. For example, do not make sudden camera movements in the frame. This will cause the blur effect to be unbalanced.
It is preferable to record close-ups, as in portrait photography. This will result in a much better blur effect and above all, it will make more sense. And if it is possible to apply a certain intensity to the blur effect, it is best not to abuse it. If we do, we will end up noticing, especially in the cheaper models, that the blur is the product of artificial manipulation and not the work of the lenses that integrates the phone.
How to record a video with bokeh effect using an Android smartphone?
In the Korean company’s smartphones, we can also have an effect like this. To do this we must open the phone’s camera, and select video recording.
Once we do so, we must click on the “dynamic video” button. Once we do that, we have to select the intensity of the blur from the modes in the bar that appears above.
What we have to do is open the camera and click on the video recording mode. Then, we have to press the ring-shaped icon that we have centered at the top. Now we must choose the intensity of the bokeh effect.
The mobiles of the Chinese firm offer us this mode within its artificial intelligence effects. In order to activate it, we must open the camera, and select the video recording mode.
You’ll see the different effects available, which are located just above the modes. Select the one called “Portrait Bokeh” and start recording, you will see how the background is blurred.
In the case of this brand, the method is practically identical to that of Realme, something that makes sense given the close ties of both brands.
The process is the same, open the camera, click on the video mode, and select the ring icon at the top. Then choose the intensity of the bokeh mode from the bottom bar.
