Hi all-

I currently have a 3d card spinning on it's Y axis, revealing both sides of the card as it rotates. I'm wondering how I can spin the card very fast initially (so fast that you can't see what anything is because of the motion blur), and then have the card slowly stop rotating and come to a rest, bringing into focus the details of the card.

I have tried keyframing this, but it's very tedious and the movement isn't as smooth as I'd like. I'm wondering if there are any expressions or quicker ways to go about this? Thanks!

Start with a Y-rotation of a very high number (1000x maybe) for the first key, then 0 for the second. Use easy-ease in on the second key.

create the 2 keyframes, easy in the second one. right click it, go to keyframe velocity... set incoming velocity's influence to something higher than 33%. 80-90% will do the trick for you.
