Hi, I'm very soon gonna buy Alam DV 2 and would like to request a plug in now so by the time I get the product, it'll be up for download. I'm wanting a snow mobile plug in for my new movie coming soon. If anyone could do this, I'd appreciate it very much.

Thanks

It would be used for a snow mobile chase. I'm making a James Bond fan film coming out 2-007 with a massive budget of $5,000.00 But, I don't think $5,000.00 is even enough to buy 1 snow mobile...lol

I don't think I could make a plug-in look realistic. It would be very hard to do. Because alamdv uses 2D images and this would require 3D images. 3D plug-ins work somethimes for spaceships and stuff. but most of the time (with other things) unless you are going to do a side shot it doesn't look good.

becuase you have a budget you might want to look into renting one. Or parhaps paying a 3d artist to do it for you. Some people on here might even be willing to do the 3d for you for free. I don't know.

I edited my post...read above

I could do the 3d but sadly not for free. I have alot of school to do and I would have to make it worth my time.

Oh, I don't like paying other people I don't know online. But, could you give me the name of the product you are using for the 3D? It would be very much appreciated.

I'm using 3ds max. You might want to look into some free programs like blender our anim8er though.

I think you should think of something more cost effective than using 3d for an extensive scene, maybe look into hiring a snowmobile (or however many you need) for a length of time.
