Issue with Motion Blur
on Aug 26, 2019 at 12:28:23 pm

So I have a fast moving shot with layers of particle stock footage which have nice highlights, but when I switch on motion blur those highlights are gone and give a very fake look (here is before and after)





Is there a way to retain the highlights like you can see in this example here? Thanks

Hey Ryan, what if you :

1. Duplicate particles layer.
2. Key-out shadows/dark areas.
3. Add some feather.
4. Do not apply motion for this layer.
5. Put it at the top of the layers stack.
6. Try playing around with blending modes and opacity on top.

Not sure whether it would look acceptable, but this is what I would try to do first.

Okay thanks Tomas, so there isn't a setting for AE motion blur to keep highlights?

Ryan, at least not that I can think of, in a straightforward way.

One way what you could do alternatively, reduce motion blur amount, by adjusting advanced comp settings for shutter. That way there would be less overall blur! :)
