How to 'completely' remove motion blur in Movie Render Queue

Hello, when rendering my first movie from the Movie Render Queue, I noticed that the preview images on it do not have the motion blur but the actual saved PNGs do have it. So, the simple thing I want to achieve is to remove it completely from the saved frames/PNGs as well. Though for some reason I could not find how to do it.

As mentioned on the guide I have to Console commands [below] involved in it, but deleting them didn’t help either.
r.MotionBlurQuality: 4
r.MotionBlurSeparable: 1

In my Post Process actor, Motion Blur which previously was set to 0.5 is now set to 0 too.

In my Cine Camera shutter speed is 300 [tried even higher but simply all went dark and could not fix without adjusting all the lights inside my scene], aperture is 1.8 and all the motion blurs are set to 0. So, I thought the Camera’s shutter settings might help but no luck there either.

At this point I am not sure where can I turn it off completely for the renders from Movie Render Queue.

I am attaching a screenshot where you can see the difference in a winded banners movement. Left is the output PNG, right is a screenie from the Render UI.

Thanks very much in advance.

movie render queue motion blur is different than regular sequencer motion blur
so those console variables may not work, and the post process motion blur i read only affects 4.26 not 4.25
what if shutter angle is 0?

I enabled camera and changed the Shutter Angle to 0 in Movie Render Queue and was almost sure it would work cause it mentioned here as well.
https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/PythonAPI/class/MoviePipelineCameraSetting.html
‘A shutter angle of 360 means continuous movement, while a shutter angle of zero means no motion blur.’

Didn’t work, the PNGs still have motion blurred.

Also, seems like lots of people after same cause! https://www.reddit.com/r/unrealengine/comments/96tyia/how_to_remove_anything_resembling_motion_blur/

At this point not even sure where to check, browsed all the the motion blur related topics…

Solution is to disable Camera completely in Movie Render Queue and delete all Motion Blur related console variables.

I have the same issue! Could you please explain a bit more in detail? I didn’t understand how you fixed it…

Hello Adberf, sorry just saw the message. Here is the screenshot of the settings I use, I just disabled Camera on left entirely and was fixed.

If you like you can download the preset here: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php…95484491137667
Just place the file in Cinematics > MoviePipeline > Presets and select it to see the settings.

One workaround (tested) is to key all frames in sequencer, change interpolation to “constant”, and then in movie render queue - settings - add “camera” and change shutter timing to “frame open”.

Hey, your method works like a charm, I was wondering if there was a way of keying each frame with a single click, instead of toggling through each frame and keying it?
