Adjusting RSMB Vector shutter phase?

Is it possible to adjust the shutter phase of RSMB Vectors? It seems like the blur is always centered around my blurred object. It'd like to have a trailing edge if possible.

Not directly possible in RSMB.
And it's on our feature request list.

Ideas of some imperfect workarounds.

If you use Maya or Softimage and Mental Ray + AE there is a different option which is in SmoothKit (SmoothKit Directional that is part of the SmoothKit plugin set) that allows blur one way only. Probably still works better to do a bit of RSMB first if you do SmoothKit Directional One Way. If you already have the MV, and also have our RE:Map plugins, there is a way to convert the Motion Vectors to a form SmoothKit understands with RE:map Displace. I can go over with you at techsupport if you want as it's a bit convoluted. The only two shaders I know are LaMaison Mental Shader that has this as a target option and Mental Images mip motion vector shader where for that you have to set boolean "blue_is_magnitude"... (read the doc).

Another way is to apply SmoothKit Frame Accumulate after RSMB with 1 for Previous frames and make the Blur Amount 1.0 in RSMB. This will give you a long follow trail. This only works if the RSMB blur amount is over 1.0 (so the motion blur trail connect to the previous frame)

I tried before playing in Maya with Shutter Open to render the Motion Vectors time offset from beauty pass but the result is not always glorious.

Thanks for the info. But I'm solidly rooted in the Cinema 4D universe. I look forward to this feature being added soon!
