Well, I (reluctantly) rented the blockbuster flub, the movie-interpretation of Lost in Space. I actually enjoyed it, now, 6 years after its release, when I was only 9, and couldn't really understand it. Well, what I'm trying to get at is that as I was watching, I couldn't help but notice the simple hologram-look effects, and chromanator style blue screening. However, when it came up to Will Robinsons hologram projection of the robot (for those who have seen the movie), I thought: "Wouldn't it be great if someone made a Alam plugin of that? Man, thatd be awesome...." So, I was wondering if anybody would make me a single, front-angle hologram overlay of the robot projection that molds over Will Robinson. For movement, I need each individual piece as a serperate plugin. (Ex. claw, forearm, thorax) Yes, I realize I'm asking alot, and that it is an extensive plugin, but it is GREATLY appreciated. Here is a pic of what it looks like in the film. (I also need the claws facing forward) Sorry, but its such an old film, it's hard to dig up pics from it. smile

You realise that someone would either have to buy or model that because I don't think a free version exists, then they have to split it down into different parts and then make it into a plugin. It's just a lot of effort for a pretty specialised plugin. What I suggest you try is to trace the shapes in the picture in photoshop or whatever, then trace the lines ontop and make them glow and export on black. If you really do need it then this'll be worth the effort.

Who played Will in that movie? Been a while since I've seen it and I don't want to look it up.

Also, She's very hot in Mean Girls, which is a surprisingly good movie.

Hehe, was just joking, when I was 10 years old I was allways thinking that way. My brother was like "man shes hot!" and I said "whats the point, when you're 18 she's 40!"

But now..... Yeah shes just HOT!
