Hi,´i´m very much new in the whole making effects subject and the ones that i´ve tried to make would make any of the seasoned effects pro users laugh, hopefully i´ll get better, the program is awesome and extremely easy to use. Which brings me to my subject...any of you guys make the AT-ATs from star wars in an animated form??? That is one vehicle that i would love to get, i´ve been working on a black-colored AT-AT, but that´s just a drawing I made in photoshop. If any of you guys who obviously have better skills at this let me know if you find anything, also if anyone has vehicles from the video game "Halo"(banshees, ghosts, etc..) let me know also please. Hopefully i´ll improve on my effects making and contribute to the fx home community very soon, thanks. Druguer

Large vehicles such as these would be better accomplished using either 3D animation or miniatures. If you want them to move I'd say that was pretty much vital. If you only want them to be stationary in the back of the shot, then a still image would probably work, though.

Either way, it's not really a job for a preset.

True, its more of a stock footage job.

If you want someone to just make some stock footage, I really don't have time to model an entire AT-AT myself, but I could animate and render a model off Sci-Fi 3D if you would like. of course that my not be neccesary if you just need a still.

Guys, thanks for taking the time to look into what I requested. I understand that making a vehicle like that in 3d must be a total pain, and I think I will go with making it in a miniature shot because it´s probably the easiest way to go in this case. But i do appreciate your quick responses of my post. Best case scenario would be to have an animated AT-AT, but only if it was something that was easy to make, I don´t want anybody going through any big trouble just to help me on this. In any case, I will try to make a shot with my toy AT-AT, and then make it look really big, which by the way, If you know anyone with filters to make small models look crisper and bigger when enlarged let me know; thanks anyway for your help - druguer
