Creating A Simple Zoom Blur In After Effects

We’ve all seen the zoom blur effect before, it makes for some visually interesting transitions between shots. But what you may not know is that there are actually two different types of zooms in video editing software! One type zooming at normal speed with little to no motion whatsoever while another one has increasingly faster motions which create an abstract look as if objects were being thrown towards camera lens during filming.

The zoom blur effects seems simple enough to create, especially in After Effects. There are some issues you will inevitably encounter while trying it though so here’s a guide on how solve them! What happens to the edges of your video? How do we make sure that they’re not visible when making our videos or pictures FX like this one out right now with no frame around everything from footage used as backgrounds etc.

Motion Array has created a new tutorial that teaches you how to create zoom blur transitions in Ae. “By doing this with two clips, which look like they come from different camera angles on the same event or location,” Jordan Dueck says, it’s possible for viewers of your video footage to believe what they see is impossible camera movement.” He shows off some cool ways of using their transform effect and Motion Tiles as well!
