Probably best to buy the program before requesting effects. Otherwise even if people make them you can't use them.

the problem lies with where and how you want to use that plugin..

bad guys driving a car...team of ex-special forces escaped from a military prison being good guys, build a tank from a small egg-whisk, 4 sheets of a4 paper and some sticky-back plastic.. blow car up (without killing anyone), car jumps into air, rolls over several times and lands on its roof.

I can create a leaping car plugin, but i dont know... what direction the car is coming from, what direction is it going, what type of car do you have access to for the in-car shots, what colour is the car... etc.....

i need a car explosion too, like a home car... like be your car do you mean? the car can be stoped and blow up by a laser ray from a monster, if you can do the glass breaking and door or roads flying in the explosion will be nice!!!

the scene is the good guy try scape from the alien/monster, he running by the streets and the alien fallow him and send laser power shots... then one ray target the stoped car in the street... maybe you cand do 2 diferentes cars and colors... but please do not make a ferrari or bmw... will not be real.
(sorry my bad english!)

*I dont know how to make plugins, but you have to be more specific, do you want any car that an average person might have, or something more specific to you? Home cars can also vary a lot.

It would be cool if someone makes a car plugin of a few diff cars with wheels spinning from a front and behind view. Then a seperate one with the same cars flying up in the air and turning over. It could be any type of car. A lamborguni (i dont know how to spell it) 3d model would be cool!

This sounds like a complex 3d effect, when it would be much easier to get a model of the car you want, film it against a blue or green backdrops racing around etc. You could even make a little ramp, paint it blue & the car would be doing that spectacular jump you want.

The explosion would be where Alam comes in. After compositing the footage of the car with your other main footage, then you'd apply a gobsmacking explosion. Simple. Think simply & practically, guys.

For cracks to appear on the windows, I'd recommend filming your actor in a real car, staring horrified at the glass, then use the 'shattering' effect in After Effects. If you don't have AE then break a jar & film the bits of glass. OR, of course, use Sollthar's shattering glass Alam plugins wink

***BE CAREFUL, THOUGH***

It isn't that simple to do stuff in 3d, it takes time & most of us don't have the time to do such complex scenes for other people

Yes, its a toy car in front of a greenscreen. You can see the persons hand in one frame if you go frame by frame.
