Hi,
Can anyone make a plugin of 'this-strange-thing' that appears when someone takes airwaves in commercial? It's hard to describe it, so here are examples: www.airwaves-world.com/

I tried myself, but none of the results satisfied me neutral
Thanks

I couldn't get any of the videos on there to work, but... is this some kind of drug or something? I'm very confused. It seems like it's chewing gum, since it's Wrigley, but it also seems like some kind of stimulant from the way they describe it.

Lol
No, perhaps it's the way they describe it, it's a chewing gum from all I know razz razz razz
I don't know why the vidoes won't work, it's O.K. on my computer...
This plugin shouldn't be difficult to make, unless the commercials won't show cool

If I remember correctly from the adverts, you mean a swirly whilwin type effect that spins round a person to indicate that they have han an airwave chewing gum and can now breathe properly..

Actually, it will be quite difficult seeing as it is not just an effect that can be overlaid, it is a 3d effect that appears to go round something/someone.. so you will have to either create a very generic swirl that will only go round certain objects, or you will have to do some serious masking and keyframing to make it look like it goes behind, then infront, then behind, then infront etc..... of whatever...

In the words of phoebe from friends..

I would like to help you, but I dont want to smile

No, it's not around person, but before. So no 3-D work needed, but simple 2-D plugin. You remember correctly rest of this commercials though wink
