It'd be cool to have a pluggin for turning into a werewolf like in Van Helsing and some Vampire Bride Plugins but as stated on some other threads it'd be nice to own a endless budget film company also, LOL! But it's a good thought

Plugin making is too late.

Plug-in making is too late? Why?

With the release of Alam DV3 (YAY!) coming up fast, no more plugins are being accepted into the database. This is because ALAM DV3 wont work with plugins. Most of the plugins here now will be converted into stock footage for use with alam.

Not all plug-ins will be converted. For example, there are quite a number of Lightsword plug-ins available, which would be a waste of time to convert, as the new lightsword feature built in to AlamDV3 will be able to do them all, and then some, at better quality.

And yes, you will be able to do more with AlamDV3 than with 2. Part of the reason for this is the built-in effects generation systems, like the lightsword system and Penguin, the particle generator. The other part of the reason is that you will be able to do simple composites of stock footage, like the stuff being made from the old plug-ins. Though to a more limited extent than is available in Chromanator. But this also means it is easier for users to add their own elements to their projects, as they will not be required to build a plug-in, but can add the footage directly. I would not be surprised if in this area alamDV3 only supported footage with an alpha channel, or possible a black background, which could be removed using the Add composite mode. I'm not entirely sure on that, though.

I saw somewhere on this page,that alamDV 3 would support alamDV 2 plug-ins. I think itwas in the ''to-do list''

Whatever AlamDV3 might be able to do or not; i hate to break it for you...

But the type of effect you're asking for is absolutely not doable by using AlamDV or any plugin for that matter.
