But. . .other people can. That's why the community is so rich. Like a warm country breeze, the AlamDV forums can refresh you, and leave you with a false, but true, sense of belonging.

You DON'T need a plugin for JUST an exploding bottle. If someone makes the plugin, you can use it, but for other people, it will be as useful as, say, the Semi-Truck, Barrel, or "Tree" (ahem) plugins. Unless they need exploding bottles. wink

Seriously, folks. Anyways, that's my opinion. If you want, just place an explosion over the bottle and have the bottle gone when the exlposion's over. Or just blow up a bottle! It's not hard! Just stick a bottle rocket into it and BAM that suckas gonna be outta there. tard

Nicely said MechaForce, but like I said I don't want to blow up a bottle in the presence of a lady. And for this perticular shot, it would call for my leading lady to be present.

As for adding an explosion over top of the bottle and then having it gone after the explosion, that to me would just look shabby. Just my opinion lol

Anyway, I've decided to re-write the script without the bottle if I can't download the plugin by the time I shoot the footage, which is June, 8th. Time doesn't wait when your working with Pro Wrestler Violet Flame cool

Have you tried to come up with a way to film it using camera angles? Show her holding the bottle or whatever, then cut to a close-up of the bottle exploding, then back to her holding a piece of it- you know, something like that. With a little ingeluity and some work figuring out the shots, I think you could get a good result this way, and be able to really blow up the bottle without anyone being in danger.

Or you could get a breakaway glass bottle. Check out www.alfonsosbreakawayglass.com you can buy 'em from them. (I never have, though)

With breakaway glass, you could use a much smaller, safer method to blow up the bottle (you could throw a little rock at it, if you wanted).

i think that a plug-in of the bottle exploding, as if being hit by a bullt would be a great idea...

and mecha, many people have said this, but i am gonna repeat it...if u don't want it - don't downlad it...

Breakaway glass wouldn't do much good now, I'm gonna be shooting the footage on Saturday, June the 8th redface

I guess I'll probably have to go with the re-write. Cause I only have two days to shoot with her.

If you did some good old-fashined 'camera tricks', though, she wouldn't even have to be there when the bottle exploded. If you can get the camera angles and the cuts right, no one would ever know she wasn't there.

Hopefully you won't have to re-write, but sometimes that is the way it goes. I just don't have the time to create this as a plug-in right now, though. sad Sorry.

I contacted the guy who owns Alfonsos Breakaway Glass and bought some stuff for my film from him about a year ago.
He really hooked me up considering I could only buy a couple of props from him (usually you have to buy a crate of any give item as a min. order).
Make sure you really need the scene with the break away prop. And try to get it in one take- then you'll save money and get that Hollywood look you want.
Becareful with the fake pottery break away stuff. One of my actors nearly got knocked out when we used a vase on him it was so hard. Although he didn't get cut.
The beer/wine bottles are really great- worth the $$$.

I guess the plug-in is not gonna make for her shoot, so I guess the re-write was in order.

With my luck, after I'm done with her shooting someone will make this plug-in. Just like the Battle Droid unsure

Oh well.

Oh wait . . .sling shot for blowing up the bottle.


And since she's a freakin' pro wrestler , i don't think that a bottle blowing up would be 'scary' or something.....

Right, sling shot for breaking the bottle.

Just an overall suggestion, since the fellow who started this all doesn't seem to need the effect anymore.

But I figure somebody, somewhere, might want to break a bottle on video sometime, even if just for the pure destructive joy of it.

A bb gun would also do the trick. Funny I didn't think of this first, since I have many bb guns, and not a single sling shot.

Don't blow up a bottle! Or at least be very very very careful.

We did that once and we're really lucky that nothing serious happend. An explosion (even a small one) inside a bottle can do a lot of pressure. And you'd wonder how far and especially FAST those glass splitters can fly...

Seriously, watch out with exploding glass.

Oh, yeah. Sollthar is right (though that's not rare). Safety first.

I meant to use your bb guns or sling shots without anyone standing close.

Safety googles are also a good idea, of course.

The film that the screenshots are from that I'm doing is a slasher horror film.

That last pic of Violet in the black outfit is one that I modified (added the fangs and eyes), it was originally a publicity shot she did for her web site under the wrestling name Nightshayde.

And TMM, she is hot, you got something against muscular woman or something?

Jesus Christ Wild Thing! Isn't this getting a little off topic? I fail to see the relevance in posting pictures of an XXY shemale on a special effects forum!

However there is an entire world of perverts out there who'd LOVE to see her, i recommend the newsgroups. How about:

alt.binaries.pictures.female.cross.gender

or

alt.binaries.pictures.fugly.women

In the meantime, kindly stop testing my gag-reflex, i could swallow my own sperm if i wanted to do that, and i woudn't even have to waste my time on a forum to do that!
