Do you mean the exhaust flares, or the shine off of the car? They were both done in post (After effects). I was using the Mental Ray Glare shader with a streak map for a while, but sometimes I wasn't happy with the results, especially during animation tests. I prefer the control you have in post.

The headlights and wheels are still using the glare shader, but I'm debating on changing them to self-illum and doing them in post as well. Both methods have their positives and negatives. I may do a combo method for those.

I can't do a whole lot more on this until I get my new rig. Animations with the quality and resolution (1920x1080) that I want take waaaay too long to render. Ever try adding object motion blur in Mental Ray with a one million poly+ object! Not to mention particle blur and post work!!!

I really miss image motion blur....so fast....especially with particles, which I want the engine exhaust to be........but not with Mental Ray I guess. Anyone have any suggestions on that?
