SOLIDWORKS animations and motion studies can be saved as a video (AVI file). The PhotoView 360 renderer helps add realism to the animation with an option for Motion Blur. This dynamic blurring visual effect gives more life to a moving object, making it seem that much faster.
When saving the AVI, select PhotoView 360 for the renderer (ensure you have the PhotoView 360 add-in enabled). This will provide an option for Motion Blur.
- Blur Length represents how long of a blur exposure is given. The default is 50 which represents the shutter is open for half of the exposure time of the frame.
- Blur Offset represents where in time the blur sample is taken. The default is 0 but you can set the offset backward or forward.
Compare the two animation examples below to see the effect of adding a dynamic blurring visual effect:
