From different angles with animated rotor blades. (Someone already made one for a jet!)

Thank you very much.

Guyz I am also working on some helicopters. My dillema has been, though, whether to try and animate the propellor, or have it as a blurred roatation (like in the Lancaster) or have them as still blades or a combination. Hang in there ... they are coming.

i think they would need to be blurs, otherwise they would look like they r moving TOO slowly, and then the plug-in would plumit to the bottom of the movie and crash...

yeah you should make them blurs but you should make flashes of white near the center of the propellers. its really hard to explain but a really really good example would be in black hawk down you notice it a lot when they are going down. just if you want something to compair to, that would be the movie to look at.
