Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Increasing the motion blur, part of After Effects Apprentice: 15 Creating a Sports Opening Title.
The next client comment was that they really liked the motion blur on the text…during these transitions, and they'd like to see even more blur.…Okay, how do you go about doing that?…Well, the one thing you don't do is try to change it in your Final Comp.…You may think you can go up to Composition > Composition Settings > Advanced,…and say crank up a ton of blur, click OK.…But you will see it really has no effect.…The setting for this comp only affects layers animated in this comp.…
Now, while it's true that composition settings frame rate would ripple down to…all the pre-comps, the Motion Blur settings don't.…So you're going to need to tackle this in the pre-comps.…So I will cancel out of here.…We are looking at Comp 2 right now anyway, so let's bring that one forward.…Open up Composition > Composition Settings, go underneath the Advanced tab and…work with the Motion Blur settings.…Now, we already increased the samples per frame in this comp, but we forgot to…make the same setting back in the first comp.…
