This is driving me crazy. From what I can tell, motion blur doesn't really work in Motion Templates.
I made a Pan and Zoom template for animating motion on photos. I want to have your typical 180 degree motion blur on it to smooth out the motion. However, no matter what I do it just doesn't work right. I upped the shutter angle to 1800 degrees (10X normal) and it provides only a slight bit of motion blur on only really fast moving things (I'd guess it's actually more like a 45 degree shutter angle). There is no way to go above 1800 degrees so I'm stuck. Any ideas?
It didn't really work inside the template as it messed up my "Smooth Move" rig setup. It just got stuck at the begin setting and didn't move. I think it probably has something to do with the "Loop" marker.
But I did have success using it as an Adjustment layer in FCP X. That will do for now.
Why Motion scales the time of the motion blur doesn't make a bit of sense though.
