Ok, i was thinking that since a card is about 1mm thinn, then it whouldn't be necessary to make more then two angles, on front and one behind. The 2d quad can easy create angles. Ok?

Can I just clarify what it is you're after.
Is it something like this?


And you want animations of the cards flying and spinning etc.
If you use the picture above as a starting point and tell me how to change it to make it how it's needed, I'll change it and submit it.

yes!!!
and some like this:
http://geocities.yahoo.com.br/nego_bah/card_001.jpg

if you can do many angles and positions of the cards i will very, very glad!!!! if this possible left the center of the cart in blank, whitout any simbol (like my picture for example)

try to do some movements of the card, as if the person had removing it of some device (a belt or device in the arm) and playing it forward, the letter can stop close the camera and to be planing to increase the size as approaches of the camera
one second move begin planing later to rotate possible in the style matrix ^ ^
a third movement throwing the card and he to rotate in turn of the own axis and later to return for who threw it
a fourth movement of the card rotating in turn in a circulate as if of the body of somebody

a movement that i thought observing your image, is holding for the point of the fingers and playing forward her rotating in 360° in this same sense of the photo, so passing by the camera and the card keeps running forward (to explod or anything...) like the movement of a plugin named Smokin_Bullet2 i can´t find the link sad

of course is just more suggestions in case it is possible to do, it would be very nice! sorry my bad english ^^

Who are you kidding? I don't think that Rawree's stuff has got alot better, because its always looked really good. I encourage anyone who needs semi-pro/affordable cgi-integration/FX work to talk to him. I'm (hopefully) getting some work done from him and billy, myself.

Heh, thanks for the kind words guys (I'm not sure how much of it is true wink )
ssjaaron, It's actually a really simple effect, just a box with really low height, chamfer the corners to make them rounded, apply an actual playing card as a map (front and back are different) Then add some Max Glow.

I can manipulate the alamdv1 lightsabers with card icons in it, but then I need "permission" and to know what colors you want
