Eevee & Cycles motion blur - fundamental difference?

Hi folks,

Please take a look at the film linked below.

In it you can see the same motion blur experiment, rendered with Eevee & Cycles.

Could anyone tell me why Eevee’s blur stays true to the path it actually took across the screen and Cycles doesn’t? Does anyone know a way to make the Cycles motion blur have the same geometry as the Eevee MB?

(the cycles version is slightly different in that i animated the shutter a little at the end, but this doesn’t effect the general nature of my question!)



From the other thread, thanks to Atair & Habauk:

Go to the object’s Properties panel > motion blur > set “steps” to 7!!!
