That was a fantastic tutorial. Efficient and quick and exactly what I needed.
Force Motion Blur

I have an image sequence rendered out of a 3D program (Maya), and I have been using RE:Vision Effects' "ReelSmart Motion Blur" to simulate motion blur. However, I need to share an AE project with someone who doesn't have this same plug-in. I thought I would try to use the "CC Force Motion Blur" effect instead, but I'm not having success. I tried applying the CC Force Motion Blur effect directly to the image sequence layer, and I also tried applying CC Force Motion Blur to an Adjustment Layer just above my image sequence layer. There doesn't seem to be an change in appearance. RSMB creates a dramatic motion blur where appropriate. CC Force Motion Blur doesn't seem to be doing anything. I watched your tutorial and followed the steps. Are there limitations to the CC Force Motion Blur effect I should be aware of? Does it only work for certain kinds of motion?

Can you fake out CC Motion Blur by precomposing, re-timing to be half-speed in the pre-comp, then applying the CC Force Motion blur to a re-timed layer (set to play at double the speed of the pre-comp) in the main comp? Or maybe by interpreting the image sequence as a 15-fps sequence, and then time-remapping to play back at twice as fast (effectively achieving 30 fps). Would CC Force Motion Blur work the way I want then?

I'll eventually give this a try if I find myself with some extra time, but I thought I'd check to see if you knew off the top of your head.

Thanks for responding. I imagine you posted this tutorial a LONG time ago.

what you're trying to do will only work when you retime the video (Time stretch or time remap) it won't do what you want with video playing at regular speed. You'll need ReelSmart at both ends.
