This sample shows a method of simulating motion blur of fast-moving objects using multi-pass rendering. In the first pass, the fast-moving geometry is rendered unblurred into a framebuffer object. In the second pass, a special vertex shader stretches the geometry between the previous and current vertex position based on the normal at the vertex and apparent shutter duration (stretch length), and the fragment shader applies supersampling to the first pass results to generate a blurred visual.
The OpenGL samples all share a common app framework and certain user interface elements, centered around the "Tweakbar" panel on the left side of the screen, which lets you interactively control certain variables in each sample.
To show and hide the Tweakbar, simply click or touch the triangular button positioned in the top-left of the view.

This sample is a simple implementation of a reconstruction filter for motion blur. Its main premise to to blur geometry by "stretching" some of the vertices in the opposite direction of object movement, and use the "stretched" vertex position for supersampling. This method has some constraints:
For a more plausible, generalizable motion blur effect, see the "MotionBlurAdvanced" sample for OpenGL 4.x and OpenGL ES 3.0.
The algorithm consists of the following two rendering passes:
