Try lowering the transparency for it, and rescale the effect.

Lots of people use the plugin for muzzleflash smoke, and it looks nice.

Also, you can always put chalk or something similar into your gun like shown here:

You can't use Sollthar's ones because he's selling them and is unlikely to give them away for free if he can earn a bit off them wink

I just submitted a new muzzle smoke plugin a couple days ago but it wasnt posted yet. I am actually going to submit a different one that the smoke appears a little faster.

i still wish sollthar would make some muzzle smoke plugins, i mean us no-budget filmmakers cant really afford to buy that cd, and it would be alot easier to use the footage using alamdv rather than using premiere and luminance and all that stuff

Rawree is right. I'm not planning on turning these into plugins seeing this would kind of defeat the purpose of selling them. Sorry. :I

You'd have to ask their permission before making plugins out of those and anyway, it's probably easier just to key out the background like they say, otherwise it's hassle to make the plugin etc rather than just using chromy or whatever to key it.

Well - I think that AlamDV3 will have great possibilities of creating smoke (if I remember correctly - Pinguin - particle generator wink ). Maybe it's little ahead of time, 'cause it's not up yet, but I think that it's good to remember that smile

Umm, maybe so, but Sollthar submitted one of his smokes, so right now we don't need it yet.

Yeah - but I don't think we would hesitate if it would come wink "Better" is better than "good" (well, isn't that obvious? biggrin biggrin biggrin ) hugegrin
