If you supply me with a piano and a winch I'll make it.
Before anyone suggests it, a 3D one would probably look just as fake.
All I can really say is: Unless it's vital to the plot it's probably better to drop it (no pun intended biggrin ) and if you do need it, a plugin is not the way to go really.

I can make a plugin with some stills of a piano and some stills of debris, then when it hits the ground, you can add some thick smoke plugins, then when the smoke clears, the pile of debris will remain. Would that work?

I don't know how to do animated plugins, but if I did I'd give it a try. wink

Are these angles good? (I made them smaller for the sake of space, they will be bigger in the plugin) I will trim down the trash pics to be about the size of a broken piano.
