Motion Blur

Part of the mental ray® Handbooks book series (MENTALRAY, volume 1)


Physical cameras expose their film for some period of time, during which moving objects in the scene may change their position, orientation, size, or shape. Moving objects leave a blurry “trail” on the film. In particular, the edges of moving objects become semi-transparent because the object was only occupying the blurred region for some fraction of the shutter open time. Motion blurring simulates these effects.
