How do I turn Motion Blur on for an image in FCPX?


I have a png supplied by the client that I am applying some movement to to and need to introduce some motion blur to smooth the motion a little, any ideas?





MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2), 2.5GHz i7, 8GB Ram, 12TB T/bolt

    There a few blur effects in FCP X.

    Not refering to a normal filter effect, eg gaussian etc, rather the motion blur that used to be found in the motion tab in FCP 1-7.

    I hope I am wrong but it's another short-coming of FCPX.  I like to do speed ramps (which don't work nearly as well as FCP7's Time Remapping) and I can't add motion blur to the shot.. and sending to Motion5 is not streemlined eaither....  Bummer...
