I've checked through the plugins but cant seem to find a decent, runny bloody plugin for use from a gunshot wound. We shoot indoors alot where the use of real blood on set it out of the question, but can anyone make a dark red, runny blood plugin which kinda spurts/squirts out a wound at high speed please? The kind of gunshot I am referring to is like the ones seen:

- COP LAND during the end shootout
- RANSOM during the van murders sequence
- HEAT during the airport ending

I can supply some caps on request if people need them.

Yeah, I know it would be best to do this live but its only gonna be brief and its inside my lovely home where using fake blood is not an option. Sorry.

Why is fake blood not an option? There are some recipes of blood that won't stain, and depending on how and where you do it, staining shouldn't even be a worry...

See, you won't get a decent blood plugin. I always go for the real thing, and just change how I do the effect and what I use depending on where I am... What's the problem with the house? Hardwood floors? White carpeting? Honestly, if all else failed with recipes you could put a cheap rug down from Wal-Mart or whatnot that would solve the problem.. or film in a different house/room/area?

Different house, then? Sorry if I sound like a pain, but people will tend to go, "Whoa, digital blood!" instead of "Whoa, he got shot!"

How do I know? It's happened to me.

Well, I got Chromy, that's a start. Maybe I can do something with ketchup. Hmmmm...

What exactly do you want me to make? What type of blood? What should the blood do? What type of wound is it?

Just write a list if you need multiple plugins.

Well I'd like a few variations of the same plugin if you get me, so my gunshot wounds dont all looks the same. The blood should be quiet dark and squirt/run/splurt out of a hole in the body. I think its best if you PM me your email address and I can send some video clips/caps your way which show exactly what I am after.

Thanks so much man.

I don't understand how you are going to use this as a plugin. If I'm thinking right, you're talking closeups on blood coming out from someone. That's going to look horrid. Please tell me that's not what you're planning.
