I used to use Camtasia Studio 8, and one of my favourite transitions was "Radial Blur".

I was wondering if someone can make that effect for PowerDirector (I have PD15 if that makes a difference).

This would help me out a lot!


I hope I am posting this in the right place, if not I apologize.

Hello Ross,

I'm familiar with the Radial Blur transition in Camtasia, having used it for some years myself.

Though I haven't fully explored every transition possibility in PDR19, I believe something similar could be replicated using a simple fade transition with an effect applied at the same time.

For those unfamiliar with it, here's a screen capture showing the transition and how it looks played back frame-by-frame:



Many versions of PDR ago, there was a set of NewBlue FX called NewBlue Motion Effects, two of which were Shear Energy & Spin Blur. Either of these, applied "over" a fade transition would give you something close to the Camtasia Radial Blur transition. Motion FX is still purchasable from NB.

It turns out Zoom Blur in NB FX came closest.

Decided to check out PD15 and follow PIX’s instruction “I believe something similar could be replicated using a simple fade transition with an effect applied at the same time.” Here is one rendition using the PD15 fx Radial Blur effect that can be keyframed say during a fade transition. See the attached video.
