Zoom Motion-Blur TransitionLately, I've read that people have been trying to figure out how to achieve one of the latest fads in image transitions, the "zoom motion-blur" transition. At first, this transition may appear to be hand-held video footage or perhaps manipulation of z space coupled with some motion blur done in After Effects.
Fortunately, this effect can be achieved through some clever use of Flash and very basic ActionScript. In this tutorial, you will learn how to create the 'zoom motion-blur' transition using Photoshop and a single hi-res image.
Before you get started, it's best to decide what your subject will be. The effect works best if you can zero-in on something smaller or some place you might move towards. In this case, I have car, and I simulate someone quickly moving towards it.
I. Obtain a hi-res image and open it in Photoshop. This is the only image you will need. My image was from my 3.2 megapixel digital point and shoot measuring 2048 x 1536 px.
Once you have your photo. Perform any touching up as if you were going to prepare it for web.
Our final Flash movie will be 320 x 200. If you choose to make your final zoom/transition larger or smaller, please note that you will have to adjust accordingly.
