hey guys, this is my first post. My friends and I and currently working on our xmen project. it will be a full movie between 30 and 45 minutes. I need some help though with the plugins. Does anyone know how to make wolverines blades slide out from in between his knuckles. also how to make objects float through air and im sure theres some other ones ill be needing.

Do me a favor. Don't try and make your first move be 30 minutes long. Actually, i lied. My very first movie with my friends is 35 minutes and it's not even half way finished because we thought it sucked. It's got some funny stuff in it, but it's baaaad. So do what you will.

aculag: this isnt my first movie actually. it will be our 4th. but for the rest of the movies we used alamdv1, this will be our first time using alamdv2.

Andrew: yeah i should have known better to look through the tutorials. i apologize.

anyways. the other movies we've made are back to the future one and two, and are currently workin on ghostbusters. then batman then xmen will be filmed. i am still writing the plot for xmen. so any help with the effects and even ideas for the movie would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys. oh and by the way back to the future was 11 minutes long. so this will be our longest movie so far.

WHOA!!!! YOU DID THE BACK TO THE FUTURE MOVIES? AND GHOASTBUSTERS!? WHOA! YOU MUST HAVE A BIG BUDGET AND A PROF. CREW!!

ooooooooook then..

anyway, its OK that u didnt search first, just using a heads up. Adding onto Aculags bad movie post...hehe, i dont know if you got the LOTR Two Towers DVD or not, but the guy who plays sam (forget is name at the moment) created a small short film. Its in the DVD special features...called "The tall and short of it" i believe...look at that. Its a great length. Its well done, and it didnt have anything too complicated in it. Just a thought, not saying to stop your film of anything. But i do think that one was pretty good.

biggrin Andrew

Yeah... Alls I'm saying is if it's your first thing, and you're an amateur, start small. It's a learning experience. biggrin
