    I am trying to get the effect of a person waving on video, but it leaves behind a trail a movement connecting the two most lateral points of the wave. The video I'm working on, there are a bunch of hands grabbing for a piece of paper and I'm trying to make it look more hectic. So I thought adding a motion blur to it would help.

    I've been searching online and trying the different filters and can't seem to get the desired effect. I can't imagine it being too difficult, I could just use some help pointing me in the right direction at the very least. Thanks

    lol - Final Cut Pro and/or motion. Whichever can do the trick easiest.

    Anybody else have any suggestions? The video shows a view looking down at a bunch of hands grabbing cards. I want the arm movement to come across blurred or to put it better, to leave a trail of their movement.

    Try copying the original layer and stacking the media over the top off-set my a couple of frames, then change the opacity of the layers above so you can see through the stack! add motion blur to all the layers!

    This should get you a little closer to where you might want to go! ;)

    That sounds like a quick and easy way to do it. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll give it a try a little later. Thanks

    I'm confused because this sounds like what you're going after in the first place, the motion blur.

    If you want more there is a plugin called twixtor which will do it but it may cost. Maybe there is a trial.

    Hi,

    Your question is not totally clear to me, but from what I understand you could try in Motion to set the motion blur parameter.

    You can find it in project properties->render settings

    Increase the number of samples and experiment with the shutter angle from 360 to 720.

    Probably you have to render a ram preview to see the effect, I don't think it is realtime.
