Ive tried some test shots on a car for my planned Low budget but beautiful looking BACK TO THE FUTURE spoof. i want to do a hoverboard, which i plan to use a skateboard then CLONE STAMP the wheels out frame by frame in after effects, but it still wont have that swaying unstable motion of a hoverboard!
anyone got any ideas as to how i could pull it off asides from hanging my actors from cables?
And i know this bit should be in teh plugin requests, but a trail of fire going into the distance like 2 flaming tyre tracks would go down a treat in my movie! (not to mantion a spinning number plate! LOL) i would really like any suggestions from people fo rmy film and any helpful tips. Thanks

There are already fire plugins that can be used for the wheel trails, as demonstrated in this movie that only went up a few days back:http://fxhome.com/cinema/info_cache/movieinfo1714.html
You might like to contact uff about it.

The spinning number plate is really easier if you use either a real prop or make it in a 3d app.
The hoverboard thing is harder, make a search on Google
to see if you can find anything.

Thanks for the ideas guys. But im still finding it hard for a solution to the hoverboards. Google has given me all the information in the world on how THEY did it in the real film. i dont have millions or Rigs.... etc LOL
If anyone has a concept that could get me round this hoverboard problem i would be really grateful. The spinning plate on a 3D app is a great idea. thanks fr that. How do u reckon they did the fire trails in the BTTF 406 video on here?
im currently emiling them for answers, but u reckon thats ALAM or After FX?

The fire trails were done using a fire plug-in for AlamDV, just as Tarn said above.

Just an idea ,and it really depends on what shot your after.
but take a look at the movie on here "DXM the making of", in this they use a greenscreen chair to simulate skydiving, no reason why the same idea couldnt be used for the hoverboard if you have enough green screen space of course .
Something similar but lower would be a bit safer and easier to film though .,
We tried a very quick go against a wall using that for support and it worked ok just using top bodu swaying and then green screen the board from above in a plan view shot ,
Chromanator makes this all pretty much easy really
good luck .
