everyone knows the different image buffer like "depth" or "geometry". You found these in the Buffer Viewer or Buffer Export PlugIns in the Image Filter list.

But what are the X-Motion and Y-Motion Buffers????
What can I do with this? And how these buffers are created?

Thank You! :)

Hi Robert,
these are the movement of the rendered pixel in x/y on the image plane.
Vector Blur uses this info to render image based motion blur, the rpf saver saves this data as well.

So far so good, but what can I do with this? Can I use this with DFX+? For some kind of special post pro techniques? (now I`m curious)

I assume you can use it for post-processed motion blur, just like Z buffer is used for pp dof.

And a BLT at McD's.
