Your sexy father couldn't help you? razz

Just kidding.. Yeah, it was some great cloning there, some neat fx, but as adamlightandmagic said, make those machine gun flashes BIGGER!!

Oh, and to make muzzle flashes look even better, use light bulbs! I think the light bulb is the best plugin for alamdv ever. Use it!


I give it 2/5, I'm very nice biggrin

That was pretty good for a test.

It has already been mentioned that the machine gun muzzle flashes should be bigger, so keep in mind that they should be about the same size as your head and shaped like a triangle pointing forward. Also you could add interactive lighting with a lightbulb or even better: with Chromanator.

Also I think you should keep in mind that when guns shoot, they don't fly upwards smile They actually fly backwards, so if you want it to look right just hold the gun at about the level of your elbow and jam it into your elbow when you shoot.

Also be careful with using images for clones, they look really fake because they don't move.

Otherwise this was okay. I'll give it a 2/5 smile

In addition to some of the things others have already said some of the clones actually blew up before the shot was fired or at least it appeared that way.

Oh yeah and as always don't vote your own movies a 5 it is just bad karma lots of people will vote you lower because of it. I think it is best just to not vote at all on your own movies IMHO.

I did quiet enjoy this test, I think you accomplished what you set out to do. While yes things may have been better, now you know this, and that is exactly what a test clip is for. So good luck and we look forward to seeing something in the furure.

While this is nearly right, guns also do move upwards, by how much depends on the gun. For example a SLR 7.62 ( old british army rifle ) has some nasty recoil and if not set in the shoulder corrcectly will bruise, but no matter what you do you get an upwards and right movement of the barrel, perhaps by about 3 - 5 inches. Pistols such as the Browning 9mm have less backwards recoil, as they are easier to hold fowards, but the result is a greater exaggeration of lateral movement, with the gun moving quite a bit, however this is easily sorted by using a correct stance.
