Wondering if someone could make colored blood for things like aliens. I am mainly looking for blood coming out of a body after being shot. Here are some color suggestions.

Orange
Blue (light and dark)
Green
Light Oliver Green
Purple
Pink

Also having some with illumination or glow would be also be nice.

Take Sollthar's blood (the most realistic looking one here) and key out the black (unless it's a tiff, I dunno, haven't looked at it yet, and change the color.

Can't do that in alam. So he have to buy Chromy.

Though is the Sollthar blood any good? Can you show me a nice example?

Crazy thought, you could film some footage and then *gasp* add the plugin into that footage.

I thinks you looks weird too.

BTW: Try as hard as you can to use real blood. Well, fake blood, but not computer generated blood or stock footage. Let's just say food coloring rox.

Ok, took the blood in chormy and used that Luminosity key, and not the add option. Looks very good now.

May I also mention that this is blood for CG characters, so it would be difficult compositing real blood (no real blood, but fake blood used on camera) with the characters would be difficult
