yeah, this has been requested a LOT of times, by me and a lot of other users of alamdv...

u wouldn't need the shield incorporated into the plug-in, because u can use the mega shield effect...

i suggested 3 variations, one of it rolling, on of it transforming, and one of it standing, maybe one could eb added of it turning back into the ring...

what about just a still from the side, then in alamdv, u can rotate it a bit everyframe, that way it will look like it is rolling...

would that work???

It'd be hard though, since you would have to match the rotating speed with how far forward you want it to go. If it was off it would look wierd and would be noticeable to the eye. Also: It wouldn't be able to work if you were moving the camera at all.

All we would need w/ the still shots is an animation of it rolling, and animation of it switched from the rolling to shields, and firing. That would be the coolest to have in movies, especially with DV Lasers cool

yeah maybe, i just thought if u tweened it right, it could work well...

tweening the rotation IS gonna be the best thing, cos that way u can adjust it, rather than a set rtotation, get it...
