Motion Blur on Embedid Projects?
on Dec 30, 2009 at 6:31:45 pm

Hi

I have been round tripping my Motion work from FCP to motion, then back to FCP. When I used to work separately in Motion, I would render out a final file, and there was a check box for motion blur in the export dialog. Now I just drag the motion project file onto my FCP timeline, which is a much cleaner way to work, and saves rendering out a big file only to put that file back in FCP to go with all the non-motion editing.

My problem is that my embedded Motion project has no way of adding motion blur that I am aware of. Is there a way to add motion blur to a project embedded in FCP? I want my motion blur!

Thanks for any solutions you may have.

Make sure Motion blur is activated in the Motion project file. Then in FCP check your sequence settings and in the Render Control tab, make sure that Motion projects and Templates are set to BEST quality.

Hi

Where exactly does one activate motion blur in Motion? I have looked, but not found it.

Thanks.

In Motion 4, it's under the Render pop-up menu; in Motion 3, under the View pop-up menu. Either version, keyboard shortcut is the same: option-M toggles it on and off. To change the number of samples and the shutter angle, choose Edit > Project Properties and go to the second tab. Motion blur is universal in Motion (applies to all layers and groups) and can really, really increase render times.

Thank you! I am aware that it effects render times. I just didn't know how to turn it on anywhere other than under the export dialog.

Take care man!
