Well, I have this scene where there are supposed to be a stuntman jumping from a roof. Kan anyone make a stuntman in casual clothes and a rope attached to him, like if he has tied the rope to the top and jumped down.

Anyone interested or have any questions regarding my request?

This isnt a job for a plugin. It will look extremely fake, not to mention it wont fit your scene very well.

If you want results, either composite a live action greenscreened person in doing the motions, or find someone that will overlay 3d specifically for your film.

For more info on how Alam is not for 3d, go here: http://fxhome.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=68872#68872

Well, I do understand the situation with AlamDV and 3D models. However, it doesn't matter whether it looks real or not - I just need something. I've had a lot of bad efforts during the year with 3D programs, so that's why I'm asking here, because I think t's too hard to do it myself.

Well the thing is, no one really want to make a plugin that dosen't work good with alam. he would just get crap from everybody.

My suggestion is to rewrite your script so you don't need any stuntman, think of something else.

any greenscreening/compositing package (i.e. Chromanator) can do that easily. If you even have premiere i know that does keying. Making a plugin like that is to much input for little output. You would be the only one that could use it and the plugin would be useless. If you are not willing to try it by yourself, not many people will be willing to help you...

OK, then, thanks for the answers. I guess this topic could be locked...
