How to create a shutter drag effect?
on Jul 19, 2020 at 9:26:56 am

Hey guys!

I was wondering if it i's possible to do a shutter drag effect on a moving 2D asset (PNG), I have tried a lot of different things but can't seem to find the right method...

I haven't been able to get the right type of blur or have it stay permanently, not sure what else i could try...

I've tried using Echo, and some other effect (Which i don't remember what it is sorry ☹ )

Let me know if there's any other info you need! Hope this post is okay!

Thank you!

Try CC Wide Time. It's been ages since I played with it, but i think it might get you what you want

That's close! But the trail isn't permanent unfortunately, it also doesn't seem to work with keyframed PNGs :(

Are you talking about rolling shutter artefacts, or just some kind of motion blur?

Rolling shutter can be done with the time displacement effect fed by a horizontal gradient.
You would need a very very high setting for time resolution and it would render extremely slow

It's a kind of motion blur/ghosting, It happens when a constant light source is cast onto a moving object while using high shutter times (Over a second usually)

Here's an explanation:

OK, try installing the old CC Time Blend plugins form here:

Also be sure to crank up our Motion blur shutter speed to 360° in the composition settings for seamlessly blending your keyframed animation
