You should be able to make the sign yourself; it wouldn't be of benefit to anyone else, so submitting it as a plugin would be a little pointless.

Actually I think you mean Narcostics. It's "An addictive drug, such as opium, that reduces pain, alters mood and behavior, and usually induces sleep or stupor."

That would come in use if someone had an Aston Martin and needed it for a stunt scene.

crap man. if you have an aston martin, it's doubtful you'd use a still image plugin for a special effect shot. if you have an aston martin, it's more likely that you could afford professional computer animation.


and yes, it it narcotics. not narcostics. not nacostics. and I would also advise know what something means before using it because you think it sounds cool.

Are you making this in a 3D app? if so you wouldn't have to greenscreen anything, just render out the alpha channel as well as the video or still picture... and if I'm totally off... sorry smile LOL

I don't know hardly anything about photoshop, but I know you'll want to mess around with the alpha channel for the transparency. When I made my plug in I painted around the object with one color (maybe green I don't remember) and then used the magic wand tool to select it, then inverted the selection and created my alpha channel from that, that way everything around my object was transparent.... I'm sure I followed a tutorial for this, so there's got to be one around here...

Rouge428, the only way I can think of to get stunt cars is to use stock footage from somewhere.
