Adding motion blur
Objects in motion tend to have blur. To make the entire composition more realistic and exciting, you’ll add motion blur to all the layers. However, in order to apply motion blur to the 3D compositions, you must also apply it to their layers separately.
- Click the Enable Motion Blur button () at the top of the Timeline panel.
Select the Motion Blur switch () for each layer in the Timeline panel.
When the Collapse Transformations switch is selected, After Effects uses the settings in the original composition to determine whether to apply motion blur. You’ll need to open the 3D compositions to apply motion blur to them.
- Select the Book tab in the Timeline panel to open the Book composition.
- Select the Motion Blur switch for each of the layers in the Book composition.
- Click the 3D Text tab in the Timeline panel, and select the Motion Blur switch for each of the layers in the 3D Text composition.
