STEP ONE:
Select the object that you wish to make “move”. Copy it.
plane2
STEP TWO:
Paste it onto your intended background – make sure there is plenty of space around the object. Use the EDIT menu, TRANSFORM submenu and the options there to resize the object appropriately.
plane3
STEP THREE:
One the object is sized, go to your layers palette chose the layer with the object (plane) and duplicate that layer. This can be done by dragging it to the new layer icon at the bottom of the layers palette or by choosing the side menu from the layers palette and selecting “duplicate layer”.

STEP FOUR:
Select the lower object layer in the layer palette. Then go to the FILTER menu, to the BLUR submenu and choose MOTION BLUR.

plane6
STEP FIVE:
In the MOTION BLUR pop up box you can change the angle and amount of blur. REPEAT steps 3-5 making a larger blur of the new copy of the plane.

STEP SIX:
You can choose the various layers and move the blurs so they appear to come behind the motion of the plane. NOTE: There is also a RADIAL BLUR option – use this in a similar manner to get the propeller to look like it’s spinning too!
