Making Animated Long-Exposure Star Spirals in Blender EEVEE


wintermute digital writes:

Hi everyone! EEVEE has yet to support object motion blur, and certainly can't do curved blur trails, so here's a way to get around that!

We'll be using the screw modifier and shader manipulation to fake curved object motion blur in EEVEE, creating an animated long exposure shot of the night sky filled with concentric star arcs.

By leveraging modifiers and using EEVEE, we can speed up the rendering process exponentially!

This tutorial will take you through the full process of making an animated long exposure star scene.
