No. 3DStroke has no other brush types. If you need it, try Particular with a custom particle shape.

If you could provide a better idea of what you mean by "flat" there could be some ideas on how to achieve it.

I think I understand - sounds like you mean a look similar to the light trails in the new iPod ads . . . in that situation, Mylenium is right as usual - it is not something inherent in the plugin. While it would be VERY hard to do to acheiev the erratic streaks in the iPod ad, a simple ribbon look could be acheived by cutting a mask that restricts the shape of the 3D Stroke to a flat shape and then using it as an alpha matte for the 3D Stroke - unless of course you need that ribbon to ALSO animate in 3D space . . . at which point you will need to go to a more truly 3D oriented package rather than trying to fake it 2D space.
