After Effects New Features – Pixel Motion Blur
Motion blur is great.
Sure that might be the dorkiest sentence ever, but it’s true. Motion blur helps to make things feel real. It helps to smooth out motion. It helps to sell a composite.
Now After Effects includes a new effect called pixel motion blur. This will analyze the motion of your footage using the same engine as the time warp effect to create a fake motion blur for your scenes.
You can control the shutter angle, shutter samples, and vector detail in order to get the most realistic result for your scene. For those of you familiar with Reelsmart Motion blur, this is a very similar type effect, now built into After Effects.
