Animating gears in still image of engine...?

Does anyone know how to animate the gears in this to make it look like it's moving?

Unless it's a 3D rig, which you can animate pretty easily, there is no other way around other than isolating on separate layers the single elements that you want to see moving and animate a couple of frames of rotation and position so that they can loop seamlessly, then apply a loop expression and activate motion blur to you liking (or use Force Motion Blur).

Hope this solves you problems.

once isolated - and only for the gears that you can see edge on, you can use the offset effect to "drag" the image across the masked area and have it loop back around the other side. You can increase the illusion by putting a spherical distort set to cylinder on it so you get a little "rollover" perspective at the edges. Then finally add a motion blur, directional blur or force motion blur to the masked area in the direction of rotation (up/down or left/right)
