When you post something you have to type stuff in it.
Just putting a subject header doesn't do it.

by saying some sort of matric revolotions shockwave iner the plug in request is not a good way to request a plug-in


what are you expecting anyways? i shockwave coming from the right side of the screen to the left? a blue one? a red one? i doubt many people will remember what any shockwave would look like from any movie - and i DOUBT anyone is going to go see the movie again just to check out a shockwave. Are you expecting people to know what you want? They dont even know what kind of scene you intend to use it in. A really dark scene? a really light scene?

Do you want Stills? Animated plug-in?
You have to describe what you are looking for. THeres no way anyone is going to just throw a plug-in together based on "Some Sort Of Matrix Revolutions Shockwave".

Look at the plug-ins there are now, im sure some of them can be rotated and used for what your looking for, if not you have to be ALOT more desciptive, and maybe including some screenshots of what you mean.

The Matrix Revs shockwave....

AlamDV cannot (as far as I know) add advanced light-refacting shockwaves, it only add's effects to the clip.
You'd need a 3d programme or a Video Editor do acheive this effect.

I've done it several times now, but the only "good looking" way to do it is with a 3d programme, i use Cinema4D.

No probs,

I'm suprised CSB haven't made an effects package designed to do ripples and stuff because so many people ask about it.

If I had the knowledge I'd get togethor a few people and make a programme which could do that, but right now the limits are my media gadget programme sad

i thought of a kewl idea for a plugin alone these lines, might work in alam using transparency...

how about the silly bubble things when neo and smith r fighting, obviously in the film the water refracts what's behind it, and alam can't do that, but a kewl effect may be achieved with transparency...

might look good, might help someone out...

anyway, can't even think of any shockwave things from matrix revolutions, except the bubble things...

Believe it or not I've lost the scene I did this effect in, and it's damn difficult to set up... So i'll try and find it biggrin or re-do it.
