Motion Blur

A blur effect created by motion in a shot.

What is motion blur in ScreenFlow?

Motion blur in ScreenFlow refers to a visual effect that simulates the blurring or smearing seen in moving objects, particularly in fast-paced videos or animations. This effect is often used to make the movement of objects appear more smooth and natural to the human eye. It is especially useful in video editing and animation to add a sense of speed or to soften the transition between frames.

In ScreenFlow, a software for screen recording and video editing, motion blur can be applied to video clips, text, or animations to enhance the visual experience. It can be adjusted according to the speed and direction of the movement. This feature can be particularly useful when creating tutorials, presentations, or other types of videos where smooth transitions and movements are important.

How to add motion blur in ScreenFlow?

Adding motion blur in ScreenFlow can be done through the video properties panel. First, select the clip you want to add motion blur to. Then, navigate to the video properties panel, which is typically located on the right side of the ScreenFlow interface.

In the video properties panel, you will find a variety of options for modifying your clip. Look for the "motion blur" option. This is usually represented by a checkbox. Click on the checkbox to enable motion blur for your selected clip. You can adjust the intensity of the motion blur using the slider that appears once the motion blur option is enabled. Remember to save your changes before exiting the video properties panel.
