Curves and Motion Blur


I have a scene where a cable is animated with one end of the cable being moved by a Hook. The cable is a Bezier Curve with a Bevel object.

Also in the scene are electricity arcs being animated by a Wave modifier. These are made by Bezier Curves with Bevel and Taper objects.

When rendering, the Motion Blur on the cable seems non-existent, and the Motion Blur on the electricity arcs seems a bit harsh without the subtlety that the meshes have.

Does Motion Blur treat Curve objects differently?

You’re right!

I just made a small scene for anyone to take a look. I’d love to know a solution for this too.curve motion blur test.blend (689 KB)
