Any chance of that?


I am making a zombie film and I would like to have that skyline so I can digitally insert Helicopters and other items of that nature.

go to Google.com. Click the word "images" above the search bar, then type in Baltimore Skyline. Should pop up quite a few!

Hope this helps!

I am going to Baltimore on Friday. I don't know if I'll be down town, but I'll take some photos if I am.

That would be cool of you guys, I have some shot footage of B-more, and am using it in the film, but what I wanted to do was have a backdrop of a night skyline so I could set it on fire for my horror film.

So my bad on the lack of information.


Let me re-modify it... Any chance of a burned our shell of Baltimore skyline?

I was going to try to use some of the user made files. If they look crappy then I will resort back to general footage. I am not expecting it to be super glamorous, but I want something believeable as far as a helicopter flying around.


I need to ask a question.

there are some files on this website that discuss using AlamDv, are effectsLab and AlamDv the same program and will those plug-ins work with the current version?

There are some very cool fire files I would like to use. I have a sequence in the film where zombies attack people in a traffic jam. I blocked off over a 1/4mile of a four lane road to shoot this sequence, and if I can add some smoldering fires to it that would be awesome, however the files refer to AlamDV

AlamDV2 was the old program that EffectsLab replaced. You can use the AlamDV2 plug-ins in EffectsLab but you will first need to convert them into stock footage. Click here for a tutorial on how to do it.

If you guys have more info, give it to me now because I am taking the skyline pics tonight. They may be in the day time, but you can always Photoshop 'em. I am taking them from the opposite side of the harbor, not from that hill with the flag on it. I am using a Canon Powershot S-50 on 1600 X 1200 mode so you can use tracked camera movements etc.
