Using motion blur

Make use of the motion blur in Final Cut Pro to anything you animate adds a touch of realism. It can add some render time too, but it’s worth it.
  • “% Blur” has 500 as default setting, but you get better results with a value between 50 and 100
  • “Sample” defaults to 4, which is a lower quality setting. As you raise this setting, the motion blur will smooth itself out
  • raising the Samples value raises your render time
  • move the playhead in the middle of your animation and make the adjustments: You’ll see the motion blur update in the canvas with each adjustment
