Motion blur - RC cars?
« on: April 06, 2022, 11:45:19 AM »
Watched your latest tutorial "Fill streets full of cars...". Thank you! Very helpful!
How would you go about animating them from this setup to create some motion blur?

Hi!

Glad you found the tutorial helpful. RailClone wasn't originally conceived with animation in mind so at present motion blur isn't supported. However, if you don't mind using RailClone tools to instantiate, there is a workaround.

- For the source car objects, add an XForm modifier and animate the gizmo to move the car a little, just enough to generate motion blur.
- In RailClone, change the Segment's X Alignment to Pivot
- Instantiate the results with RC Tools.

I hope that helps,
Paul

Thanks, Paul! I will try the workaround :-)
