Get Rid of Particle Motion Blur Noise With This Free Houdini Tool

Finding that rendering particles yields a lot of motion blur noise? Instead of trying to solve it higher samples with the renderer, 3D Artist Manuel Koster has another simple solution. His Particle MotionBlur Tool creates curves where the particle motion blur would be. The curves look and act like the motion blur would from a render of the moving particles.

Manuel Koster walks through the Particle MotionBlur Tool with a quick overview, and then shows a comparison toggling between the curve strokes and a version without. The tool renders much cleaner simply because it’s rendering geometry.

There is also an added bonus to the particle blur being physical geometry. You can perform any geometry transformations on it — Something that you couldn’t do with only particles. You can download the Particle Motion Blur tool for free.
