* We all experience a first-person view of this effect every time we focus our eyes from one object to another, complete with the blurring of vision mid-movement, thanks to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saccadic_masking saccadic masking]]. The brain cannot process images fully unless the subject consciously focuses on what's being looked at, so it doesn't bother midway. Thus, the blurring effect translates as such to the cinematic whip pan.

* Used in one scene of ''Film/APageOfMadness'', a film set in an insane asylum, to rapidly pan around to various insane inmates doing their crazy things. The speed of the cutting increases until the camera is left simply spinning for a little bit, to symbolize confusion.

* The ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' games will often WhipPan between the defense and prosecution, most often at the beginning of trials. This also happens between an attorney and the witness in the middle; when panning from one attorney to the other, the witness is not shown (possibly due to graphical limitations on creating a blur effect).
