I was just thinking about some things, and I thought that a car skid plugin could be pretty cool. Also, I checked out the sparks on detonation films and thought they would be pretty cool as a plugin. Something like this: http://static.zed.cbc.ca/users/b/Brettsta/files/bang1.avi. tell me if you think its a good idea or you are up for the challenge! biggrin

So you want a car skid plugin (ie: Skid marks still) and those sparks as a plugin?

Andrew confused

Thanks! I appreciate it. I tried doing the sparks, but it kept only making the left side of the plugin, and it wasn't filly transparent around it.
