Moves a virtual playhead around a clip, allowing you to change the timing of the clip without moving it in the Timeline. Additionally, this filter lets you animate the offset parameter, often with interesting results. Try adding the Scrub filter to a video clip, then applying a Randomize parameter behavior to the “Frame offset” parameter, with the “Offset from” parameter set to Current Frame. Also, you can create a hold frame by setting Offset to First Frame, then adjusting “Frame offset” to find the frame you want.

Important: Scrub does not affect clip audio.

Adjust this filter using the parameter controls in the Filters Inspector:

  • Frame offset: Sets the offset of the virtual playhead.

  • Offset from: Sets the position where the virtual playhead is offset. Values include First Frame or Current Frame.

  • Frame Blending: Turns the blending between frames on and off.

  • Mix: Sets the percentage of the original image to be blended with the filtered image.
