Slowly but surely I am getting motion blur to work in my plugin.
I've got it working but it seems to be at a default extreme level. When I compare it to a default layer moved with motion blur, it is much more extreme. Browsing through the SDK I came across this:
Effects handle their own motion blur, using PF_InData>shutter_angle along with PF_InData>shutter_phase. The plug-in must set PF_OutFlag_I_USE_SHUTTER_ANGLE so After Effects knows it needs this information. They must check out their own parameters at other times to examine their change over the shutter interval.
I assume shutter_angle and shutter_phase will allow me to control the degree of motion blur. However, there is once again no example anywhere to show how to achieve this or how it works. I took a look at the old CCU example (prior to CS5) but no dice...
Can anyone help me out and give me some tips or examples on how to use shutter_angle and shutter_phase? If that is even what I should be using to control the degree of motion blur?
