I saw the regular shattering glass plugins, as though you are looking right at the glass. I was wondering somebody could make a sideways shattering glass effect. The best movie example I can give is from Terminator 2, when the Terminator goes through the glass, and they have that side angle of him coming out, that's kinda what I was thinking of. Thanks.

You could, but it wouldn't look too good if it was an extreme side angle, which I assume is what he needs.
