yea dude clarify and if all else fails just post up a scene file. That way even if you aren't clear people still can have a shot at fixing it.

ohh yea dude.

gay is usually used for homosexual men. Guys is the greeting.

Gays!!! :hmm:

What else is going on in the scene?

Also, have you tried entering in values numerically. I and others found that movin the values way beyond what the sliders offer is a better way to get the workable values you are looking for.

LW does have a 2d motion blur option, add the Vector Blur pixel filter. Vector mode was meant for 2d motion blur, and Blur mode was meant to enhance LW's 3d motion blur (helps remove the stepped look) but sometimes Blur mode makes better looking 2d motion blur than vector mode.

Also, try using MD Scan to "bake" the messiah motion into the softbody object, then remove any messiah references. 3d motion blur should work properly. There is also a 3rd party plugin that works like MD Scan but has more options, it was created for messiah but I forget the name of it. You can try searching for it at

Displacement Baker 3.0 is the animal.
Looks like a nifty plug.
