Vector blur blurring scene

Hi, Im using vector blur to add motion blur but I’ve noticed in my scene that the vector also seems to blur the background a little too. I’m only using ONE layer as I always have trouble adding layers on top of each other. Advice or a link to help would be greatly appreciated.

Assuming your camera is moving, everything in your scene will get slightly blurred. I’d suggest you separate your character (or whatever you’re using) and your scene into separate layers, and then apply Vector Blur only to your character.

A tip: Use the Z Combine or Mix node to combine render layers in the Node editor.

In this particular shot the camera is not moving… only the character. Thanks for the tips Daccy.
