I want to blur the content, not the lack of content. This makes the edges of my blur look sloppy and doesn't blend in with the rest of the content on the canvas. The blur shouldn't be pulling black into the edges as shown. Is there a fix for this?
Assuming you are intent on blurring the entire video area, one workaround I can fathom would be to adjust the size of the video so it is smaller than the canvas. Then just blur the smaller area. You could use visual properties to adjust it so the timing would be basically instant.

Hi kayakman, I'm guessing that maybe the reason dark objects do not exhibit the behavior is because the color being pulled into the blur is black, regardless of the canvas color. The issue may still be happening, but might not noticeable if you're blending black with another dark color?
I did notice, however, that if the object below the blur is extended far enough beyond the edges of the canvas, the color getting pulled into the edges is not visible since it's way outside the canvas.

This fix would probably only be useful for blank callouts, since as soon as you start resizing text boxes and images, you start getting distortion and text moving around.
Thanks to all of you for helping me troubleshoot this so far. I've submitted a tech support ticket so we'll see what they say.
