Would ther be anyway of having an arrow preset? Or would i have to use a 3-D program? it's gonna be difficult to rain arrows down on live actors without pain!

You could do it in ELab if you rendered an image of an arrow in p.s or whatever with a transparent background and as a .png then import it into your compositon, or there are some good alam dv2 plugins here... http://fxhome.com/alamdv2/plugins/?s=arrows&title=Search+Results

If your shot requires arrows to rain down without really hitting anything (Maybe off in the distance) you could use the particle engine. Here's a thread that I started up a while ago about this: http://fxhome.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=27431&highlight=

Cheers, i think i may use a mixture of all 3 elements: Live action arrows hitting teh ground in front and behind actors, the plug in and possible the particle engine for extreme wid shots

Another way of doing it (it would require having either VisionLab or CompositeLab, though) would be to shoot arrows falling down in front of a greenscreen, then chroma keying it.
Hope that helps!

I created a transparent background arrow that you could use however you wish.
Here is the arrow, just right click and save as a PNG.

If you can, howabout shooting a bunch of arrows on your set then shoot your actor running and use a matte to add the actor to the arrow shot.

I might try that! I'll probably have about 30 actors in each shot so live arrows would be out of the question! I'll give some of them a go!
