I would like to suggest a mask feature that is related to the motion blur filter in photoshop.

Many photographers need to blur faces or create a sense of movement on images where it was not practical to use a slow shutter spead.  It would be ideal if there was a blur option in masking...I imagine it would be mostly used with a brush to just place the blur on specific areas (faces, full body images of people walking, riding bikes, etc.)  Many Thanks for your consideration.

Seems to me that would simply be a good time to send the image to Photoshop to use the motion blur filter that is already available. Remember that Lightroom is a perimetric editing program which means that it does not modify the pixels of the original image. That is why Photoshop is so closely associated with Lightroom. Anyway, that is how I look at it.

I definitely go to PS and use the motion blur filter...but seems like a brush could be made that mimics that look in LR.  Certainly would be a time saver.

Try using the brush with Texture -100 and/or Clarity -100 and/or Sharpness -100.
