Can anybody make a plugin with a bee in it. Just a bee. No animation. Well, if you want, some wing flutter, but no other movement. Once i buy the software i am going to create a swarm of bees chase an army official. See, the rebel will shoot a bees nest that is over the army guys head, and it will fall and be stuck on the guys head as bees chase him. Cool huh?

Just go chuck a rock at a bees nest. Its far simpler, far more authentic and doesn't rely on someone else doing precicely want you want razz

Wouldn't it just be easier to run around screaming a mix of 'BEEEEEES!!' and several profanities, and then just let the audience think they see something?

Might I point out that people might make a specialised plugin for you when you can actually use it. I agree with Marek though, just run around and add some bee sound effects.

all you need is a swarm of a few black dots.

With motion blur. A lot of you forget that.

Hmmm If I recall particle illusion has a bee swarm emitter so If thats the case I'll just make the plugin.

EDIT: I guess I was wrong because I don't see any bee emitters. Sorry.
