I'm using the motion blur on a lower third that I'm about to make.....but have a look at this video, a video of lower thirds.
How do he get the lower thirds and the text to flow so gently in.
I've tried to add some motion blur to my project...but it's not nearly as smooth as on this video... Any idea how I can make this?
Speed and frame rate are critical. Pick the wrong speed and the motion will judder or look uneven. All of the movement in the sample video is very quick. That helps hide the problems that come up when you mix hard edges of the type with frame rates and motion. You get a stroboscopic effect if you happen to hit a critical speed. Read this from the Forum's FAQ for AE to understand more: FAQ: Why does horizontal motion stutter (judder) in my movies, such as during pans?
Motion blur can be adjusted in the Advanced tab of the Composition settings.
