I really liked the glow for Shonuff and for Leroy. I am really looking for the explosions in white, red, and green just like when they hit eachother.

Any help?

"Kiss my Converse!"


that movie definitely rates as 'Fly' and 'dope' and 'poppin fresh'.

or just awesome. I mean, come on! Taimak was one hell of an actor!

Awesome/Horrible movie!!!??? The Last Dragon was plain awesome! I was 7 when that movie came out and my brother and I were so excited about it, we used to get in our kung Fu PJs, wake up before school and play The Last Dragon in the living room. Man, I was in love with Vanity too.

Now if only I can get those explosions from the movie.

I have another question. I can't remember her name, but did you think that Eddie's annoying girlfriend was hot at all? I did.

I think everybody was in love with Vanity smile I know I was!

and I thought it was an awesome movie as well.. Taimak may not be the best actor, but he is an accomplished martial artist. It's too bad he decided not to make any more movies...

Hey... I don't have the movie and I can't remember exactly what the explosions looked like... Can you post a screen shot or something and I'll make you a plug in... smile

Do you want this?


EDIT: I know what you mean, I saw it in the trailer. You could just use the Arc Welder plugin or schwar's simple sparks for this effect.

EDIT2: But you want this kind of thing also, right?

Right. But they have the same glow effect as what I showed. The only difference is that the glow 'explodes' into sparks, much like the arc welder plugin that was aforementioned.

YES! The glow is what I am talking about! The explosion is what I am talking about!! I am using the regular plugins right now and it just doesn't give off the Last Dragon feel that I am trying to give off. Now it just is like a nerdy Street Fighter feeling. It's just that the plugins are pulling me into another direction that I originally was trying to go towards
