Wouldn't it be cool if we could have tornadoes wreaking havoc in our movies?

someone requested this a while ago, but everyone decided that it won't be very good because it needs to react with the environment around it (ie tear trees outta the ground an stuff) so it won't be all that impressive if it didn't effect the surroundings...

then i had the idea of "if u r making a film, with a tornado, u can make thinsg fly into the centre of the screen, so when u put the plug-in on, it looks liek things are being sucked in" but i dunno if it will ever get done...

yeah but you could move and throw stuff while filming.
then use that tree plugin to pull trees up.
I think it would be a great plugin.

There is a thread on this request here: http://www.csb-digital.com/alamdv/community/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2838 and the guy who posted it said he was working on the plug-in already. Haven't heard from him in a while, though, so I don't know how he is coming with it.

This is just kind of an update:

I have been working on a tornado plug-in, and I finally got a result I am pretty happy with. Keep your eyes open for a few tornado plug-ins soon. Of course, interaction with the environment will have to be filmed; because the plug-in is not capable of that.
