Hi all, just wrapped on a musical film, need some plugins though - fireworks and a shooting star in as high quality as possible. I know there are some fireworks on here but they don't look very realistic really!
Any help would be massively appreciated! Thanks

Isn't a realistic shooting star just like a white dot moving fast?

Why not use real fireworks?
I did this at a wedding recently. The couple had a fireworks display in the evening and because it was night time, it gave me a perfect black background.
For a later part of the video I just keyed out the black, slowed the footage down a bit and, hey presto!, real fireworks overlayed on the video during their 1st dance. They looked 1000x better than any plugin.

Unless the plugin is a real firework recorded over black then keyed out it will look the same, and the person can send the sound over too, it''d be 100% realistic. But then again, nothing beats the real thing.
