Force Motion Blur in FCP
on Jul 7, 2016 at 8:43:50 pm

I've got some 900fps footage ramping from real time to super slow-mo. Normally I'd take the clip in to AE and do the retime there adding CC Force Motion blur to get realistic motion blur. My workflow this time deicates that the retime is done in FCP. So, is there a way I can get a similar effect to force motion blur in FCP? Happy to buy plugins if needs be.

I've tried tried turning on frame blending and optical flow, but I'm not getting proper blur. The subject is a fast spinning mechanical object (think electrical drill-bit speed).

Any tips?

I made this little Motion template to do a similar thing. Set the strobe rate to the frame rate of your sequence. Then you can adjust the wide-time settings to get some motion blur. Not sure if it will work or not with your particular situation, but worth a shot.

Thanks Brett. In the end I didn't use your template, because I'd already come across a different technique.

If anyone stumbles across this thread looking for the same answer be sure to check out Brett's solution, or this one:

This is one of my all time favorite plugins, Reel Smart Motion Blur.
