Hey, I have this movie I'm making where I need either aliens or, guys in suits like in Halo. Can anybody make a plugin of the main character in Halo... stills and/or an animation or two? One of him running and one getting shot - that would be the coolest thing ever. Can anybody do it/ Thanks mucho,

Someone already made some Star Wars characters, like the droids and Yoda, that were animated, why couldn't they do the same with the Halo character. I am also making a Halo movie, so I would really like to see some. If anyone needs some still pictures from it, including renderings, I can email them to you.

It wont look good, period. 3d apps give you freedom of rotating the characters and animating them your self. Get off your butts and learn Blender. Buy the book on it, it will help.

Yeah, but maybe have some of the objects like the Pelican, or the huge UNSC and Covenant ships. Also the gun flash of the Battle Rifle is different then what is avialble here, so that does need to be made.

Dude, I would help you out if i could, but my computer's out of HD space, otherwise I'd get some 3d models and put 'em into the Plugger, hence making them plugins. Sorry. Maybe someone else will be nice enough to do this for you.

Thanks, for the to effort of at least wanting to try. So far all the people who have posted on my subject on helping on a story line, just ramble on on how not to do and critizing me, so I am happy to see someone trying to help people.

It will look bad. Alam isn't for prerendered composting, nothing is. It's the worst concept in the world. I can do some 3d animation for you, it will have shadows, 3d animation, instead of limited to one angle. Particle effects like smoke coming out of the exhaust. But I reccomend conatacting Rawree and billy3d, you have to pay a small, worth it fee. And they are amazing and perfect and awesome. I believe they also d character animation.
