Easily Create a Rolling Sutter Effect in Arnold

Lee Griggs shows the parameters for creating a rolling shutter effect with Arnold.

One of the artifacts with digital cameras is a rolling shutter effect. If you have a fast-moving object, the lines of the camera sensor record a snapshot line-by-line, thereby creating a stretched or bent effect based on the movement.

Interestingly, this type of effect is super-easy to set up in Arnold. Arnold has a Rolling Shutter setting, and you can use it to simulate that real-life artifact. Arnold rendering specialist Lee Griggs covers the attributes to get distorted and weird-looking images using Arnold by adding movement, motion blur, and the shutter effect.
