What is motion blur and when to use it?

First of all, let’s break down the motion blur. In some videos, you might have the blurred train or blurred car while its moving. Whenever object is moving in the frame(video), it looks blurred. Sometimes when object is moving slowly but you want it to appear moving fast then you add motion blur effect to that moving object. By applying motion blur, it looks like object is moving faster than it actually is.

When you use keyframes to move any object or stickers or anything in the video, the object moves smoothly from one keyframe to another keyframe. Because of smooth moving, it doesn’t look realistic. so sometimes that’s why we use motion blur so that moving object would look more realistic and not at all animated.

So, in conclusion motion blur is the effect which makes moving things blurred so it makes sense. Now let’s skip to the part where I’ll show you how to use motion blur in Capcut.
