Hey guys, this is Eric Meek 77 again, back with the second half of our motion tutorial. We will going to add zoom blur. There is going to be several parts to this but right now, I am just looking at the blur. The only thing that I have done differently is group everything into one layer. So, the first thing that I will do is to select that one layer. I will going to go up to add a filter, under blur and that is zoom blur. As you can see that throws a zoom bar into our canvas. So, now I am going to hit F3, so I can go to my filters perimeter box, over here in my inspector. I am going to make sure I am on frame 1, which I am. I am going to turn on my record animation button, because I want to make sure I capture everything that I am doing.
Now, I am going to open up my dash board by hitting this button and hit F7, it is right here. I am going to take it out all the way down to zero. Like that, right there. So now, I want to move on up in the timeline a little bit. Maybe about until frame five to where the zoom is pretty much under way and I want to move my bout slider to three to increase the zoom a little bit. Then, I am going to go to frame nine a little bit further up in the time line. Increase my amount a little bit more to say, five. There right there, I am going to go to maybe a little bit further, say frame 11 and I will drag it back down to three. Because it is coming back and out now, I am going to frame 13 and put it to zero, there right there. Now let us resume playback and see what we got.
As you can see, we have added a zoom blur to zoom on it, but we are not yet finished there is also a zoom out and we want to do this. So, what we will do is stop playback I am going to move to frame 46, which is about where she starts to zoom out from my eye. So, set it on frame 46. Now, I will drag the amount slider somewhere other than zero and bring it back to zero. That little jiggle action creates a key frame that is in the same position.
So now, let’s go up to frame 49 and set our motion blur to three. Let us go to frame 54, set our mount to five, clockwise time. Let’s go to 57, we are just duplicating the exact same thing that we do to begin the clip, all right in the clip. I will bring it back down to 3 and then we will go set our frame into 60 and we will bring it down zero. Stop recording, push my play button and see what we got.
As you can see, we have added a very nice zoom blur to our project, but do not worry, we are far from finish, you guys. We got a lot left to do to this. So, stay tuned and the next one, we will be adding some other elements and some other camera angles and we have just got a lot to do so. I hope to see you again, I hope you come back for the next one and I hope this helped a little bit and if it not maybe I can give you ideas of how to do a few things. So, we will see you next time.
