Hi, i hope someone can help me on this, maybe it is a basic question.

I have a scene with a bunch of butterflies flying, all motion blurred, now i need to get a depth pass of that for comp, should i include motion blur on the depth pass? Should i turn it off?

Tks guys!

just create separate motion blur and depth passes, and tweak to your content in post.
rendering motion blur in MR is a pain....

Caffeine Abuse has a nice tutorial on using nulls to control the far and near areas of your depth pass.

Hope this helps,
