Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating strobe effects with the Spin Blur filter, part of Photoshop for Designers: Filters (2015).
- Let's take a look at how we can use…Strobe Effects both with a Path Blur and a Spin Blur…and I'll begin with the Path Blur.…Convert my layer to a Smart Object…and come to my Filter menu, Blur Gallery, Path Blur.…I'm gonna drag the path direction to…correspond to the direction of the tram.…And then pull up the center point as well.…
So, if I increase the speed, let's say I want to go…up to 200, that's the kind of effect I'm gonna get,…which looks quite interesting,…but I'm gonna turn off center blur…so that the blur is moving in one direction only.…Now look what happens if I turn on my Strobe Strength.…When I take that up to 100%, I currently have…four strobe flashes and we can see…four impressions of this image.…Now four, I think in this case,…is a bit too much, so I'm gonna take it down to two…and I can affect the distance of the strobe flash…from the original with the speed…or the endpoint speed,…and I might need to just come and adjust…the direction of the path blur.…
and I can also diminish the effect…with the taper, so if I were increase the taper,…
