will the FX team ever have a full plug in download where i can just download one humangeously huge file and have all the plugins at one time or will i have to just do it one by one as usual?

that would be really sweet, but I doubt it will ever happen. Hmm, my post really doesn't have a point now does it smile

Doesn't make too much sense because, number one, AlamDV3 is coming out soon. Also, since new plugins are always made, it'd be kinda annoying to have to update the big compilation file.

And don't download ALL the plug-ins for AlamDV2. Not only it will be hard to find the right plug-in, it will also run sloooooower.

Not to mention all the plugins together are several gigs. It would suck our bandwidth and be pretty laborious to download. It's a far better idea simply to download specific ones you need for your current project.

well perhaps a single file for just muzzle flashes or bullet casing or something so that you can get all the diff effects in 1 file that are related.. i know the things i listed come with alamdv but perhaps like several small large files that all contain the same general idea.. ie. gun files(anything related to making a shootout) ? just a thought

I guess this also is some kind of protection.
If someone got a hacked version of AlamDV, this someone still could not get the plugins from the plugin section.
Its harder for them to get 10 different muzzle flash plug ins, than to get one big muzzle flash collection.

I like the way it is right now (browsing through the plugin section and download the ones I need).
