OK FXhome, how about a backdrop repository similar to the audio downloads section. I'll start you off with this donation
www.cyberanswers.net/CloudFlyThruFINAL2.avi
I created it after reading the flying background request posted on this forum. It is totally my work and was done in Carrara3. Use it for any project you want royalty free however I don't want it SOLD in ANY way.
Sorry it's large (34megs) but I was going for quality (Full DV 720x480)
It's 10 seconds long and fully LOOPABLE for those long flights!

Have Fun

Yeah, I know, It's not like "Ahh. he's only got 5 force points, I don't want to answer his topics"

The only thing I like about force is avatars and the saber.

I have thought about this, how would this be useful, I mean, it's very good, but the camera goes through the clouds, you would have to composite the person onto an alpha channel, import into the 3d app, and then make the actor actually go through the clouds. Other wise the clouds would be flying by, in front of the actor.

From the side, and something between the side and front. Thanks

Side would work, going through clouds, unless you did it in the 3d program wouldn't, unless there is a way. If so, someone explain.

hey man,

I'm looking for something similar to this, in the clouds.

But i need the camera to be swirling around rather than just going through. I don't mean a simple rotation, i mean as the camera as flying it'll go left, then up, then flip, then right and so on. My footage is a person in the clouds being "free". I have the footage shot and its just all over the place and I need clouds like that. Matching up with my footage as to orientation doens't matter, I need a sort of "free-fall yet not falling" look.

can anybody do this?

Wait... So it's royalty free, but we can't sell the video we put the footage in??? Then it isn't royalty free, because that would mean we just had to credit you. Public Domain means that it can be used for whatever without credit. Royalty Free means free to use as long as credit is given. THen there is fair use which rules are writen by author. Like maybe used for any non-profit venture... Is that what this footage is? Or do you mean, you just don't want us to sell it by itself. Thanks for the info.

Peace,
William

I guess I should've been clearer...
Make as many movies WITH this footage as you want...and I hope you make money with it.......I just don't want to see it in a stock background compilation on ebay.
