I wanted to experiment with the use of motion blur for the following:
- When moving between bodies, since this can result in a fast "fly-by".
- When observing bodies move past the camera at high speed, such as when using high time-multipliers.
- For fast orbital motion of satellites or moons. In this case it is quite distracting to see a label jump-around an orbit when it is too fast to move smoothly. In this case motion blur "smoothes" out the motion, and reduces the distraction to the eye.
- When panning the background stars.
