OK if someone would make a tornado plugin we could use the TREE and BARREL as debris. Also the 18-Wheeler. I think it would work.
Film an open field, add the twister and trees flyin, have an actor running maybe.

Then add some kinda color filter to make it look creepy.

What you think?

Yeah but wouldn't it look weird if things are getting tosses around by a twister when the grass and trees are standing still? tard

you could use fishing wire to move tree limbs and little trees.
or film during a storm.

it may not look like the movie TWISTER but,
it still think it would be cool.

OK ... just so you are aware MechaForce ... I have actually made a Twister plugin. I made a 3D mesh in 3DS Max to create it. The trouble is that it looks like crap so I have not uploaded it. KermZ

MechaForce....... I'm talking about shrinking the tree plugin down and using it as debris in the tornado. and using fishing wire to move REAL TREES. think about it....
