After Effects CC 2015 no motion blur
on Dec 21, 2015 at 10:09:09 am

Hi I have searched for a post that deals with this issue but couldn't find anything - apologies if it is out there, I am new here!

I am trying to get motion blur to work on Adobe After Effects 2015. I have the appropriate layers motion blur switched on and and the 'master motion blur' active. I have my selected layer moving (at speed) from left to right of screen. This isn't video of motion this is actual key-framed movement. There is no blur occurring. I have the previews at full (no wireframe etc) but still nothing.

Anyone have any ideas - am I missing something obvious?

Thanks in advance and again, sorry if this has been covered somewhere,
Joe

Do you have effects applied to the layer? Some effects do not support motion blur, in which case you can use CC Force Motion Blur.

Thanks for your response. I don't have any effects applied but I will give the CC force motion blur a try and let you know how I get on!

Thanks again,
Joe

If it's not an effects issue there are three more possible reasons for lack of blur: the layer isn't moving fast enough, the comp has a high frame rate or the shutter angle (in comp settings) isn't set high enough -- it defaults to 180 degrees. You can goose the shutter angle past 360 degrees, which is impossible in the real world but no problem in AE.

Thanks! It was the shutter angle - it was set too low.

Much appreciated,

Thanks again,
Joe
