ok i understand that the AlamDV2 plugins have a Terminator 2 liquid metal bullet hit, but just to be curious, does any1 think they could take the effect's chrome look, and put it all over a person to make it look like a full liquid metal person, not just the bullet hit. If you have seen T2 im talking about when after he crashes the truck and walks out of the fire and is completely liquid metal. Just something simular if u can help me out.

Thanks

you could film some one against a blue/green screen and then colourise them

im about to try a t2 style guy too so i was wondering how i could do it


one of my ideas was a start/stop motion clay figure


or if someone is good on a 3d animation prog you could ask if they could attemt to make it

another idea is to paint over on photoshop but that is very time consuming and have big files

i had a bad blue sceen shot and no programes could pick up the blue so i tryed to paint over the background, i gave up after about 20 immages it was too much work to do just 5 seconds.

You could try using a displacement map.
