Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Pixel Motion Blue effect, part of After Effects Apprentice 10: Time Games.
- [Instructor] Pixel Motion Mode only affects animations…you create inside After Effects.…For example, by key framing the movement…of an object across the screen.…It does not affect already recorded footage.…However, you may have footage that has strobing problems.…Maybe the shutter speed was too fast,…maybe 3D render does not have motion blur built in.…In this case, I have some cars that go by…really quickly on screen here.…But you notice, the individual frames are very sharp.…There's not a lot of motion blur.…
That's because these were shot…with a very fast shutter speed,…probably trying to compensate…for how bright it was on this day.…But, when I preview this…and I'm running After Effects CC 2015 right now,…you may see that the motion is a bit stroby…as these go by.…Looks a bit discontinuous or like a bunch of still frames…rather than a nice, smooth, continuous motion.…Well, in After Effects CC, they have added a plug-in version…of Pixel Motion Blur that does work on footage…or renders that have already been created.…
The After Effects Apprentice series was created by Trish and Chris Meyer. These tutorials are designed for After Effects CS4 through CC, and can be used on their own or as a companion to the Meyer's book, After Effects Apprentice.
