Yes, you're right, I probably should have looked at console. Anyway, the 
vertex and facecounts remain constant throughout the animation IMO. I 
can't see how the vertexcout would change (?).

I created the file with 2.40 or 2.41. I'll take your advice and try to 
import the mesh data instead of the objects. The problem is that it's 
too much work =) So I'll have to live without motion blur (or use the 
old method - depending on my schedule).

Thanks for you advice.
