In this video I’ll show you one final way to add motion blur in post using a plugin called Reel Smart Motion Blur.
The results are pretty close, but RSMB seems to be a bit silkier. The speed of RSMB is the biggest thing though, since the other options are really slow. There are some limitations to adding blur in AE, such as warping if you increase the blur too much, and it also can’t do rotational blur from what I understand. I haven’t had too many problems with it and think the time tradeoff vs quality means I will probably never use motion blur directly in C4D. Maybe R13 will be faster, I will run some tests in the future, but for now, RSMB is my tool of choice. I’m interested to hear all your thoughts on this, let me know in the comments!
Here’s the best price online if you’re interested in buying the plugin: RSMB
