Want to have an effect of someone diving off a cliff .

So took a still picture of the cliff and used that as the back ground this is in effect a 1second frame i think ?,

does the plugin have to have the loop built in of a lot of the same picture (its a vertical drop so thought I could just use the single effect pic as a single layer plugin).

But when rendered it jerks at 1FPS. I need it to be a smooth dive effect , any ideas to help out .

Many thanks if you can help ,

Seems to be that Im using a still picture as the back ground, in this case it only sees it as a single frame of 1 second or so .
Guess there must be some way to extend this photo so it seems like it is longer, say 5-6 seconds.
Do I need photoshop or similar to do that ?

I suppose obvious choice would be to just run the camera on the cliff for that amount of time .

You should be able to drage the effect like any other I believe so just drag it so its the length you want.

you could take the still int o a video editing program, like premiere or similar, and extend it however long you need, then render it as a video clip.

why do this in alamdv, i see you have chromanator, which i think would be a better option since you have much more you can do as diectional blu which would work as motion blu.
