Adding blur

For most After Effects workflows, blur comes in real handy. And I am going to show you a few different blurs that you can apply here. You might think it's just kind of like a simple softening of the edges, which can come in handy. I will show you how do that. But there are variety of ways to do that here. One the way that we apply blur in After Effects, one of the most intelligent ways is actually not an effect. It's kind of built into the program. I have this knight animation here, this hacking knight, but this looks very cartoony because he's moving very fast, and it's not blurring. And we are so used to the way film cameras work that we see a movie or something, and there's fast action.

Our eye just kind of expects it to be blurry. This is kind of like a problem for a film cameras. It's like a deficiency, but that's just the way it's been and that we've adapted to. So, when we see a fast action like this, it looks very robotic when there's no blur....
