It would be cool if there were some bullet hits like in the lobby scene from the matrix with alot of debris. The ones out there now are just sparks and such.

Trouble with a plug-in like this is, what kind of debris? Wood, stone, cement, drywall, brick? And which color? It's the kind of thing that wold really have to be custom made for the shot.

nah, it is a good idea, i mean we have metal and glass hits...

we just need a few avriations like a wood one, with splinters flying out, a brick one, similar to that off the matrix, etc etc...

and if they don't quite match, then just make them slightly transparent...

Oh, I'm not saying it's a bad idea, just that it's hard to do universal ones.

It'd be great if there were some slider to adjust the color tone or brightness of the debris, that was you could match it to your background better.
