Motion Blur does not stay inside Precomp
on Jan 25, 2017 at 3:36:05 pm

I am not sure if the title makes sense, but I honestly could not think of a better one.

I am doing some retouching work. I have a precomp in my main composition that is sped up (time stretched to 50%) inside the main comp. Inside that precomped composition I have done all my retouching work in the footages original dimensions and speed. And on my retouching layers and the composition I have activated motion blur and everything looks perfekt. But once I render my main composition the motion blur is way too strong. In the main comp motion blur isn't even active but it still seems to re-evaluate it. How can I stop that from happening?

Thanks!

Prerender the footage in the nested comp, and THEN adjust the speed of the just-imported prerender.

Thanks! Could I also simply check the "Preserve frame rate when nested or in render queue" option for the nested composition or could that produce unwanted side effects?

Not sure -- try it & see. If it works, great. If not, you have a solid-gold Plan B.
