I find most framing to be annoying and ridiculous myself. But it’s the thing. Eventually, THAT will look old-fashioned and something else we can’t yet predict will replace it. I’m hoping for automatic pan-zoom to points of interest but that will require a few more resources.
If _I_ started using the side-blurs, I’d probably choose an 8-bit look. I happen to like the look of perfect pixelated squares over gaussian blurs, but not having the apps myself, I don’t know if they offer that. Probably not because I haven’t seen it anywhere.
