Creating Motion Blur Using Final Render

You can use PhotoView 360 > Final Render to create a single blurred image based on a selected frame in a Motion Study animation.

To create motion blur using Final Render:

  1. Add in PhotoView 360.
  2. Open an existing part or assembly motion study with moving components.
  3. Click to place the time bar in the motion study.
  4. Click PhotoView 360 > Final Render or click Final Render in the Render Tools CommandManager.
  5. In response to the screen message that appears, click Include Motion Blur in the final rendering.
  6. In the Motion Blur Parameters dialog box, use the sliders to set the values for:
    • Blur Length

      Controls the length of the motion blur effect.

      The default is 50, which is similar to a camera set with a 180 degree shutter, resulting in the shutter being open for half of the exposure time of the frame.

    • Blur Offset

      Controls the center position in time where the motion blur sample is taken.

      The default is 0.

  7. Click OK.
    The PhotoView 360 preview and Final Render windows open.

    The preview window shows the still image:

    The Final Render window shows the blurred image:

  8. If you are satisfied with the image, click Save Image in the Final Render window.
