In this video tutorial, Joe takes you through using velocity and depth passes to create motion blur and depth of field to your work. While Joe works his magic using V-Ray, this technique can be used on pretty much any 3D renderer. So sit back, relax, and let YellowDog help you take your animations to the next level.

Watch the video tutorial below

In this tutorial, Joe shows you how to:

  • Change the render settings to enable the separate passes
  • Export your scene to YellowDog for rendering
  • Set up a motion blur by adding a vector blur effect
The V-Ray render engine is an award-winning solution for CGI that was developed by Chaos Group. V-Ray is capable of advanced visual effects such as caustics and refraction, making it particularly popular with artists and designers who need to create and render complex illustrative models and make photo-realistic visualisations. Many studios across the world use V-Ray for rendering including Method Studios, Scanline VFX and Pixomondo.
