Yeah, usually car plugins would be a horrible idea, as you would need to have the wheels moving, etc. But if you want it just to force pickup, that may actually be cool. I know a site that creates awesome car models, maybe I'll finally try and get it together. I just hope it has all the textures confused

:ahem: The barrel and tree are worse!

But nobody cares if you don't like the truck plugin. don't like it, don't download it. that's the moral of the story. wink

Why not use Solithar's method? Watch "THE TEST" in the cinema section. Diecast cars are cheap and easier to come by plus the lighting would be right....

After the bagging I still get for the barrel, semi and tree there is no way I am doing cars - don't think I could handle more criticism from Sidewinder and Mechaforce.

Kermz all innovators have many more failures than successes. You should be lucky that your results are the other way around. The general opinion was that 3d stuff was not for AlamDV2. You threw a couple of things out there and some like the tree and barrel were not well received but others like the space ships (still and animated) have proven very successful. So successful that they have changed the opinion of the hardliners who said no 3D would ever be on AlamDV. So forget the detractors and keep trying. razz

It's amazing that the plugins are so succesfull, but yet, isn't my movie (Crash Landing) the only movie to really showcase them? I know there was that fully AlamDV movie but other then that...Weird.
