We have all seen the zoom blur effect before, it makes for some visually interesting transitions between shots. It also offers some continuity between the shots, often approving ad if the camera is continually zooming in with one fast motion.

The zoom blur effects seems simple enough to create, especially in After Effects. There are some issue that you will inevitably encounter. What happens to the edges of the image? How do you make it so you don’t see the frame of the footage?

Motion Array answers those questions with their latest tutorial that shows how you can create a zoom blur transition in Ae. “By doing this with two clips that look like different coverage of the same location, you can convince your audience that you were able to get impossible camera movement”. Jordan Dueck says.

Jordan shows how you can make use of the transform effect, and use motion tile to fill in for the frame edges when scaling. Neat!
