Rotating Wheels

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have a question about how to rotate wheels so it looks like the vehicle is moving. What I do now is select the wheel and use the radial blur, but this is not always as precise. So I was wondering if there was an easier way or a plugin for this?


Thanks in advance!

Try this:

  1. Make an oval selection covering a large part of the tyre & rim.
  2. Copy (Ctrl + C) and paste it into a new layer (Ctrl + Shift + V)
  3. Apply Motion Blur @ 25, Not Centered, Distance = 13.
  4. Repeat for the three wheels.


I think it could be improved if the front wheel had the most Distance when using Motion Blur, and the other wheels proportionately less.
