I was just watching the old AlamDV 2 movie thing and i think it would be cool if you guys added a bullet effect. It could have 3d rotation like the muzzle flashes and you could include a few textures and sizes. Im in a hurry to leave so goodbye!

i believe long ago they said that the software won't ever be 3D unless they spent years on it and made in all new program but for what i know eLab/vLab/cLab will never have 3D elements or anything added to them...with exception of the muzzle flashes.

To add to that, the muzzle flashes aren't true 3d, but more of a simulated 3d. Your best bet for a bullet is to render one in 3d to fit your scene, or use stock footage of either a real or a 3d bullet and composite that in.

Maybe they could include a few different bullet images and angles and you could set the transparency and what not i guess. But you can do that if you have a picture but it would be easier if it was included.

Or you could just download the presets from AlamDV and either create an image stream or just extract specific images.
