Hi All
I've encountered a very strange problem while using Trapcode Particular while using AE motion blur.

I've simulated a really cool rain effect using T. Particular, using small standard spheres, and have some horizontal wind turned on... however, when I turn on motion blur to make a streak effect, it streaks completely backwards from the direction the particles are moving O_o The rain now looks like its falling flat as opposed to streaking at a proper angle. I've never encountered this before and am stumped. Has anyone run into this problem or know whats going on?
Real-Smart-Motion-Blur works okay, but the particles are too small for this plugin to perform correctly.

CS5/ trapcode 2.1/ OSX 10.8.3

You have control over this with the Shutter Phase property.
