Maya, mr displacement map/motion blur


Ok, I posted this before, but I think in the wrong forum. Has anyone succeeded in getting the displacement map/motion blur to work with mental ray in Maya for NPR? I know there was a thread about this a year ago, but I haven’t heard ever since. Thanks.


It works fine on my side

test file attached


Thanks so much for the file. Motion blur does work beautifully on displacement maps when it comes to motion of the whole object. What I was trying to do is a non photorealistic rendering technique designed by Isaac Botkin which involves animating a displacement map in itself (either rotating it or oscillating it at a high frequency) and then rendering with motion blur to achieve softer edges than those you normally get in mental Ray or other renderers.

Here is the link:


I’m trying to do the exact same thing… have you come across any success?
