[quote="Ashley":34du6ob6]Bah, I prefer the runtime motion blur! To me that looks nothing like motion blur, because the main object graphic is still perfectly crisp. It's just a smudgy trail behind it.[/quote:34du6ob6]
Well, it's a different effect. This is pretty common in some games, and although it has maybe originally intended to simulate something like motion blur, it is nowadays used as a effect of its own. I can think that some want to use an effect just like this.
