Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding motion blur, part of Blender Essential Training.
When you render animation, a lot of times you'll want to have motion blur…applied to your scene.…Now this just adds another layer of realism, and it creates the blur effect…you have when you take a picture of an object that moves within the length of the exposure.…So I have a simple scene here, and it's basically just a pool ball rolling into the scene.…Now if I put it around frame 22, so it's somewhere near the center of the…screen and I do a quick render, you'll see that it doesn't look like it's…moving in this scene.…
Now if we were to actually animate this and play it back, you'd see it kind of…go from frame to frame, and it wouldn't have a sense of realism because it…wouldn't have a blur to it, or a motion blur.…We can fix that by adding in motion blur.…We do this under the Render Properties panel.…There is a rollout here called Sampled Motion Blur.…Let's go ahead and open that up and click that on.…Now if we just render with the default settings, we get nothing, because we need…to have multiple motion samples.…
