I desperately need CGI American Revolutionary War-like cannon plug-in AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I would really appreciate it and am happy to deal out a lot of Force Points to whomever makes the plug-in.

Thanks,
S.D.

People in this community are anti-CG plugins if you haven't noticed...

...as long as it helps at least one person, I don't really care, and it sounds like SciDog needs it.

You should explain in fine detail how it will be used.



have you tried using a picture from google?

Well, a sigh because i responded to this. Should i have ignored it? Would that make me cool? Should I have made fun of his idea? Should I have become no help and tell him to "make one himself", or go buy new sodtware?

No, the sigh was partially because of the CGI. The other part was the "I desparately need" part... It was lucky that you were able to get the cannon for it... but relying on AlamDV Plugin makers for a deadline (I imagine that's what you were trying to make, am I correct? Is this a school project or something?) is not a reliable thing to do. After Effects, Photoshop, Paint and many other programs could do this, and it becomes slightly agitating to see this happen so often. Granted, you got someone to make it for you, and that's great. But that won't always happen. I strongly suggest making plugin requests in advance so they don't become "plugin emergencies". Especially when countless other programs can do the effect that AlamDV just was not built to do.

Just my $.02


And no, Bowie.. it was good not to ignore it. The person got what he needed as a result of your work, and it seems greatly appreciated from that person. It's just that this happens so often, and there are other options.
