Hello there. I want to create a motion blur for a lightsaber in maya and what I want to do is to have a motion blur with a solid white color. How do I adjust the opacity of the motion blur to be 100% opaque? I'm also having problems with the end of the blade. Even if I render a rotating animation the end of the blade does not create an arc. Instead it is flat like the images below.

Here are the images:

SHORT AND FLAT MOTION BLUR (DOES NOT FADE BUT SHORT AND FLAT)

LONG BUT FADING MOTION BLUR (LONG BUT FADES AND STILL FLAT)

By the way, I'm rendering in 2 frames of animation (one at initial position and one at a 180 degree rotation) and specifically rendering the second frame using mental ray. Thanks in advance.
