I think it would be great if someone could make a set of "Cartoony Muzzle Flashes," to use in animations. "Real Muzzle Flashes" don't look quite right in animations. Maybe it's just me,

thanks!

Do you have an example of how you'd like these to look?

What do you want them to look like?
Can you possibly describe them?

I can make some cartoon explosions and cartoon smoke if you want, and if someone answers my question in the Plugin Unofficial Tutorial post.

I won't have a go at any muzzles until you specify what you want, it'd be stupid to upload something so simple.

I have however, uploaded a series of Cartoon stuff - 2 explosions and some lightning biggrin

Pooky: That is exactly what I'm looking for! Thank you so much, and take your time. Sorry I didn't answer sooner, but I think that these cartoony muzzle flashes would be good for animation. Using real ones just doesn't look as good, or maybe it's just me wink.

I have made a revised Cartoon Muzzle (Cartoon Muzzle 2) and submitted it.

It has blurry edges and looks better.

I know, this is kinda late, but I have made an attempt at something like this for something else, I could upload them if you wish, three variations. Kinda crappy I know, but I could touch em up to however you people want them.
