QUESTION
Can you render an image in Print or Poster resolution using the Motion blur effect?

BACKGROUND: You have added a Motion blur effect to a Photo or Clip. The motion blur renders OK if you render to Email or Desktop resolution, but it does not show when you render to Print or Poster Resolution.

ANSWER
What you've noticed is a constraint in Lumion: the Motion blur effect cannot be rendered in Print and Poster resolution.

This applies to motion blur on animated objects.  Camera movement or rotation is OK.

The constraint is due to the fact that high-resolution images are rendered in a different way than lower-resolution images & videos, i.e. using a tile-based approach.

The highest resolution that supports the Motion blur effect is 2560x1440 which is available on the Images tab in Movie mode.



 SUGGESTED WORKAROUND:
1.  If Print or Poster resolution is needed with the blur, then first render using either Single tab -> Desktop, or Images tab with 5 Star quality in 1440p resolution -> Required frame number.
2.  Then rescale using an image editor, or dedicated image re-scaling tool such as these listed in our resources topic: SmillaEnlarger or Ben Vista.


Lumion 8.0:
In Lumion 8.0, the 'Motion Blur' effect will work for resolutions up to 3840x2160, provided that you render the image via the 'Image Sequence' tab (or as part of an MP4 file). Please note that the 3840x2160 output resolution requires a graphics card with 6GB memory (or more).
