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?

    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...


    Other gripes:


    KeyFrame Interperation for ANY keyframes.  NOT THERE

    Drop Shadows for PSD or other GFX files (only for text)

    Bad Organization of Projects

    Lack of user control

    (so many more)....
