Quick Overview

Adds a stylish motion trail to your graphics just like regular motion blur, but more cartoony.

Add Your Tags

Cartoon Moblur behaves similarly to default motion blur except aesthetically it is much more suited to flat, minimal, 2D and cell styles. The blur is generated based on your transformation animation.


Customisable Parameters

  • Shutter angle (length of the blur)
  • Color (fill or gradient ramp)
  • Opacity Samples (quality)

Suggested Uses

Adding extra zing to text animations. Creating intricate transitions with ease. Creating complex faux 3D elements (especially logo stings).
Making simple iconography look awesome. Everything you'd normally use default motion blur for. And more...

v1.5 Supports 3D layers!


Version 1.5 features:

  • Compatible with all transformations, including 3D.
  • Compatible with parented animation.
  • Alternate motion source parameter, allowing you to apply the effect to an adjustment layer and have it affect all layers underneath
  • Compatible with bezier path (aka curvasceous) animation.

Version 1.0 limitations:

  • Input layer must have collapse transformations on.
  • Not compatible with parented animation. 
  • Compatible with 2D rotation but not 3D rotation.
  • Compatible with X & Y position and anchor transforms but not Z. However Z axis transforms can easily be simulated using scale. 
  • Takes the shortest direct path between keyframes, therefore it does not honor bezier path (aka curveasceous) animation.
