Is it possible to achieve this look I made with motion blur in the render panel similarly in the compositor without having to move the object?


1 Answer 1


Use the directional blur node.

enter image description here

Form the blender manual:


Controls how may times the image is duplicated to create the blur effect. Higher values give smoother results.


Wraps the image on the X and Y axis to fill in areas, that become transparent from the blur effect.

Center X, Y

Sets the position where the blur center is. This makes a difference if the angle, spin, and/or zoom are used.


How large the blur effect is.


Image is blurred at this angle from the center.


Rotates the image each iteration to create a spin effect, from the center point.


Scales the image each iteration, creating the effect of a zoom.
