I know that there are smoke plugins already, but I think there should be another type,. I've heard people say that if you have an airsoft gun, you can put flour in it and it will look lioke smoke coming out when you shoot it. Maybe someone could tape that and make it into a plugin for us who dont have airsoft guns. Tape it infront of a "black screen" and make the file into images. Front and side view would be cool. Anyway, just a suggestion. Ill be home tomorrow, NO SCHOOL! cool Later

I can do that. I need to buy gas for my gun though. But yes... When the gas arrives, I'll do that.

I think that having smoke come from the gun would make a more realistic shot. Especially if someone were to make a western or something. Guns back then had big plumes of smoke that came from them.
