Increase the Shutter Angle setting. See "Motion Blur" (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AfterEffects/9.0/WS3878526689cb91655866c1103906c6dea-7d5ca.html).

I'm not sure what you're asking, but I'll try a guess. If you're asking for an explanation of 32-bits-per-channel, high-dynaimc-range color (which in After Effects uses floating-point numbers), then perhaps this excerpt from "Color depth and high dynamic range color" (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AfterEffects/9.0/WS81984DEB-D195-4822-9A06-EA0D00A0ECC7.html) will help:

"High dynamic range (HDR), 32-bpc floating-point color values can represent brightness levels much greater than white.... Set the project color depth to 32 bpc to work with HDR footage or to work with over-range values—values above 1.0 (white) that aren’t supported in 8- or 16-bpc mode. Over-range values preserve the intensity of highlights, which is as useful for synthetic effects such as lights, blurs, and glows as it is for working with HDR footage. The headroom provided by working in 32 bpc prevents many kinds of data loss during operations such as color correction and color profile conversion. Even if you’re using 8-bpc footage and are creating movies in 8-bpc formats, you can obtain better results by having the project color depth set to 16 bpc or 32 bpc. Working in a higher bit depth provides higher precision for calculations and greatly reduces quantization artifacts, such as banding in gradients."
