THE MUZZLE FLASH-GUN-THREAD/Competiton
Hey guys, I thought it would be a good idea if we post our gunfights in one huge thread so that their easier to view and not having to start up new threads everytime you finish a gunfight. They don't have to be long atall. The minimum time is 5 seconds and the maximum time is 1 minute. I'll keep updating this post so you can see a list of the gun fights and who made them etc. We can also add a poll to see who's are the best. Prefierbly made by Effectslab (DV or Pro) but can be stock footage if you wish. You can use stock footage to enhance your clips (aka. Sollthars smoke Pack). They have to be mostly all a gun fight (not 50seconds of non-effect footage then all of a sudden a 5 second gun battle). I will give you some reference footage if you want to take part but dont have a camera etc. RAW GUN FOOTAGE FOR YOU TO USE QUICKTIMERAW GUN FOOTAGE FOR YOU TO USE- AVI
Please note I didn't shoot this footage but someone I know on another forum uploaded.
I'll be the first to start:1. mattio's GunFight FX test- 9 seconds long, 2.20mb, Quicktime 71. mattio's GunFight FX test- 9 seconds long, 7.09mb, Quicktime 6

Sounds cool. I think I am making a short this weekend that will have a gun fight so I'll probably post it.
By the way your gunshots look cool/good and I really like it when you shoot that guy it looks really good for just using post effects.

I dont know, none of the video clips are working. I tried save target as, but nothing works. If just says cannot open file, missing compressor, ect. If there is something I should download to fix this please tell me, I have this problem like crazy lately.

It works fine for me, have you got Quicktime? Install the latest version of that. Are you sure you haven't tried the Quicktime 6 video? that should work? You may have some spyware/viruses on your computer. Thats what happend to me on the internet. Everytime I typed like ebay.co.uk in it came up with like this search engine
Get something called xoftspy. Thats a great program to get rid of your spyware/viruses... google it

No, I am DEFINATELY not worried about viruses. All of my fathers financial stuff is on here, so he is never going to risk anything. I swear to god he has downloaded and purchesed every anti-virus or spyware program EVER. I have been the the Quicktime webpage. Is there a way I can download the newest Quicktime without I-tunes?

I was bored, so I made this
using Mattio's footage. It's nothing special, just flashes. No blood, no smoke.

The muzzle flashes are ELDV right? And what're the bullet casings?

where did you get that blood smoke effect, that was a nice touch. is that just solthars smoke tinted red?
Posted: Sat, 15th Apr 2006, 9:11pm
Post 23 of 29
yeah, it's sollthars smoke pack tinted red using color correction. I recommend buying sollthars smoke pack, it's awesome.

Or wait for the HD version that will come out eventually. It's not just HD, the smoke itself is way cooler... if you don't believe me go watch some gunfight from nightcast or ask him for a link to one.

mattio, do you insert your stock footage using your Editing software or in Effects Lab? I have to give you credit.. you do the best muzzle flashes ever.. i don't expect you to give away your method.. but how did you do that blood spray at the end!?

Any gold member can download one of Sollthar's smoke clips for free in the old plugin library. Just import the image stream into EL or CL.
