Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Using motion blur, part of After Effects Apprentice: 16 Creating a Medical Opening Title.
We're almost ready to deliver a proof to our client.…Let's watch it one more time to see if there is any tweaks we'd like to make…before sending them this first proof.…With my cursor hovering over the Comp panel, I'll press the tilde (~) key to…maximize its display, and I've already rendered a preview for you.…Let's go ahead and look at it.…(music playing)…It's pretty good, but there are a couple of things I'd like to improve before having the client look at this.…
One problem I noticed is during this camera pull back, there was a bit of…stuttering in the motion of this video frames coming on screen.…Also, at this point when the camera is so close to them, they are being scaled up …to be larger than their original size,and I'm a little bit worried about the image quality at that point.…To cure that, I'm going to enable Motion Blur for these layers that are causing me concern.…I'm going to twirl up some of my other layers just to clean up my display here,…bring my switches column forward;…shortcut is F4, and enable the Motion Blur switch for all of these videos.…
