In this movie, I'll cover a few ways that you can refine your animation. We saw earlier how you can add the Blur property to any animation. However, when you add Blur, it's more like a Gaussian Blur, and it blurs in all directions evenly. On the other hand, because it's part of the text animator, you can save the Blur property and its value as part of a text animation preset. I will set the Blur property back to 0, and let's compare that look with the results you get from the regular motion blur.

To enable motion blur, you need to first enable the Motion Blur switch for the layer and then enable the master Enable Motion Blur switch at the top of the timeline. At this point, you can see that as the characters are animating from right to left, they are motion blurred in the same direction. The faster the characters are moving, the more blur they have, and as they slow down, they get less and less blurred. Now remember, the speed that the pixels are traveling is mostly determ...
