I searched in the plugin directory and couldn't find anything like this. Does anyone know where I can find Angel's? Thanks!

Whoa, hold on there sparky.
You're gonna need a 3d program for that kind of effects. An alamdv plugin would look like crap. Look into blender. People have gotten awesome results with that. But dont even bother trying to do this with alam, it will just leave you dissapointed. (no offense csb dudes)

Even better than trying a 3D program, use real people and costumes, build yourself some sort of bluescreen to film them in front of, and composite them into whatever scenes you need them in using Chromanator when it is released.

Yeah, if you're trying to create what people normally think of as angels (ie, humans in white, perhaps with wings), then just use real people in costumes. You can always composite some wings in later (I believe there are some wing plugins).

You don't want to be trying to do CG people when you can just use a real actor.

well, yeah, thats what i meant. I was just thinking that he wanted to use some form of cg since he wanted to try to use plugins when real people would be the obvious answer. biggrin
