For compositing 3D renders, here’s how to make motion look good.
When something moves quickly on camera, it creates motion blur. It’s something our eyes expect so when it’s not there… things tend to look fake.
If you’re using an external app like Blender to make objects move, you could add motion blur in the app – but that may make compositing more challenging. You might want more control with various backgrounds or making changes in speed.
All you’ll need to add motion blur yourself is a render setting in your 3D app and a quick tool in Fusion.
In this video from Casey Faris, you’ll learn about:
- Export settings in Blender
- Channel settings in Fusion
