I am currently setting up a multi-thousand frame scene and I am seriously looking at the benefits, or lack thereof, of motion blur.
I know the in-and-outs of motion blur, so I don’t need help on setting it up, but what I am interested in knowing from people who have rendered up animations with and without its use as to whether it really adds anything to the animation. With a multi-thousand frame scene and looking at a couple of hours per, having the renderer decide to render 5,8,11 or 16 times the number of frames is obviously something I’d rather avoid if it adds nothing or only negligable value to the animation.
I also know that it’s possible to motion blur by effectively half-framing with the sequencer - a question for anyone who has used that method therefore, is it a decent option? (quality wise).
