Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a blur effect with Motion Blur and Puppet Warp, part of Photoshop for Designers: Filters (2015).
In this example, I'm going to combine the motion blur filter with puppet warp. …Here's our starting state, and here is our finishing state. …If we look at the finished state, we can see that we have a layer to which a …motion blur smart filter has been applied. …And there is some work been done on the filter mask. …On top of that, we have an additional layer that is just the arm itself, at a …reduced opacity, in this case 50%. To which motion blur, as well as puppet …warp has been applied. And then a third layer, which is a …blurring of the drumstick itself. And to complete the effect, a color …lookup table. And at the very top of the layer stack, a vignette.…
So let's come to the beginning state. Convert the background layer to a smart object. …And start out with a Motion blur. And I'm going to use an angle of minus 45 …which more or less follows the angle of the drumstick, and a distance of 90 pixels. …Now I want to restrict the amount of blurring that's happening on that layer. …So I am going to fill my Smart filter with black. …
