(Smart) Motion Blur in Nuke
Those of you who like using RE:Vision Effects’ ReelSmart Motion Blur plugin, for adding natural looking motion blur to an image sequence, but don’t have the budget then OFlow is your answer. Nuke’s OFlow node is essentially an advanced retiming node with a motion blur option. The same vectors it uses to create the inbetween frames are used to create a vector based motion blur.
The following image sequence has no motion blur:
To add motion blur to it you:
1. Add an OFlow node (only available in NukeX) bellow the image sequence in your script.
2. Change the “Speed” option to “1” so there is no actual retiming of the plate and you are just adding motion blur.
3. Change the “Shutter Time” and “Shutter Speeds” to your liking.
