I was wondering if there was a way to blur a moving object in the creation of a video file to make it appear more realistic. I know about the motion blur option but it only creates a background effect, (not altering the actual object(s) Can this only be achieved as an after-effect?

I've not tried this, but it comes to mind as a possibility....

Try exporting your object as a 32bit avi (with transparency). Then inside your NLE (VS for example), place this on an overlay track and apply a blur filter to it. Since it is transparent, the blur should be applied to the object, and not the background.

Simple answer to your question.. Yes, as an after-effect..
