Blurry, and is that a ship design? looks interesting but maybe you could add a little more texture to it?

Yes there is a motion blur effect for the video. The ships move pretty quickly and it it wouldn't look right in the viedo without the blur.



Some pics of the mother ship with no blur (it will be moving slowly in the movie)some point lighting from the bottom, the way it will be viewed

Will post more when i get new footage in a few days
