When motion blur is considered, the optics point spread function (PSF) is conventionally assumed to be fixed, and therefore cascading of the motion optical transfer function (OTF) with the optics OTF is allowed. However, in angular motion conditions, the image is distorted by space-variant effects of wavefront aberrations, defocus, and motion blur. The proposed model considers these effects and formulates a combined space-variant PSF obtained from the angle-dependent optics PSF and the motion PSF that acts as a weighting function. Results of comparison of the new angular-motion-dependent PSF and the traditional PSF show significant differences. To simplify the proposed model, an efficient approximation is suggested and evaluated.
