Put the car  on its own transparent layer.

Reduce the size of the car or or do a canvas resize (Image tab) so you can make the blur longer. I used the for this & used Layers > Rotate/Zoom & reduce the car size to 0.69.

 

Duplicate that layer & on the bottom layer run Effects > Object > Trail. Increase the distance (82 is what I used) to your liking but leave the Spacing at 1. Tick Fade Out & High Quality. You could then reduce the opacity of the layer to your liking. I think mine was about 215.

 

If you are feeling very adventurous, put the Trail layer on top of the car & use a transparent gradient to blur just the rear end of the car. I think it might be better to start the gradient from the back of the car. You can always right click on the circular nubs to change the direction if that makes sense.

 

There may be more than one way to achieve the look you are after but I hope this helps.

You're go to have to work with layers.  Try this

 

1. Duplicate the car so you've got 4 layers of the car

 

2. On the bottom layer run Trail Blur (180 angle) ( you could use Motion Blur but I prefer Trail Blur personal choice)

 

3. On the third layer use twist on the wheels using the ellipse selection ( no spin blur in PDN) > lower the opacity when done so the original wheels show through

 

4. trail blur the top layer > lower opacity so there's sllght movement

Could be better but I'm short on time and the cutout was pretty naff

 

Just noticed the door mirror stops there being an illusion of movement.  Whichever way you do it ... without movement on the wheels, it'll just be a blurry car.  There must be a better way than Twist ?

There is.  Quicker and easier.  Cut a rim out using ellipse select > Align it centre on the canvas > Radial Blur to suit

I think you nailed it. :D I knew there was more but I just didn't know what else. Way to go @welshblue

That's exactly how I made the individual frames for this:

 

I had a blank moment.  I couldn't work out why Radial Blur wasn't blur rotating the rim when I selected it.

Then it was duh ... it's got to be central.  Muppet.  Me not you 🤨

I may post a video tutorial if it'll be beneficial here

I think video tutorials are easier for most people to understand.

I prefer well written tutorials; I find them easier to follow at my own pace.

If I was to commission a tutorial, I'd demand a video version and a written version. As it is, I'm grateful for anything published here, in any form  🙂
