Pulsating Blur Effect


At the 2:38 mark, there is a shot of the amplifier which has a pulsating type blur effect. Does anyone have any suggestions on how this effect might be created or replicated in Hit Film?

P.S. Lots of practical effects in this short. 


  • Shake effect. Very fast amplitude/speed/rate, small Amount/size. Crank up the motion blur. 

  • OMG. That was fast.


  • Caught me online. ;) Good timing. :) 

  • Thanks so much for sharing your expertise.

    One of these days I'm going to binge watch every video on Hit Film Univ.


  • It also looks like they animated a zoom blur effect as well, in addition to general camera shake.  The zoom blur is what creates the outward pulsing.
