Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating motion blur in the Maya Software renderer, part of Maya Essentials 6: Lights and Rendering.
Another important effect to consider is motion blur, and this is used mostly in animation,…but what it does is it simulates how objects blur when they're moving quickly.…So if an object moves significantly, while the camera's shutter is open, it will…appear blurred, and we can simulate this effect in a number of different ways.…So I have a simple scene here with a submarine, and a propeller that's turning.…So when I press Play, you can see how that propeller spins, and let's go ahead…and do a quick render.…
I am going to go into my Render Settings window, make sure I am in the Maya…Software Renderer, and let's go ahead and render the scene.…Now as you can see, there are just sharp edges along everything.…So we don't have any blur.…But we can add that in the Render Settings window.…So if we go into the Render Settings window, under Maya Software, if we scroll…down you'll see an option here called Motion Blur.…If I click that on, you'll see we have two options:…one is 2D, one is 3D.…
So let me explain the difference here.…
