I'm animating an atom so I have an electron circling the nucleus in the x direction. I've added a motion blur in the x direction which I like. The problem is that I'm then using AS3 to duplicate the animation and randomly rotate it. Now even though the electron is moving up and down the blur is still horizontal. Is there an easy way to fix this? I've tried making the blur a movieclip inside another movieclip but it always blurs only in the x direction.
the blurfilter has both blurX and blurY properties.
Yes I know that but since my animation is rotating most of the time it will be at an angle. That doesn't work for x and y unless I'm blurring both but that still doesn't give the effect I'm after. I need it to rotate with the animation.
assign your blur on a child of the revolving object.
