A little too general there.

I mean, wouldn't it be cool if someone made one of those cool gun plugins? Someone should do that!

Seriously though, nobody can do anything with that request. Do you want a pool of blood? Blood being sprayed (bullet hit)? Spewing blood? Blood running in someone's veins? A cup of blood? A syringe with blood in it? A big blob of floating blood in space?

??? neutral You get a zero for useless.

should be pretty easy to do - u can just get the current blood plug-ins, throw all the images into photoshop, and fiddle with the hue and saturation...

but if u want different ones, just have to start from scratch smile

A good idea for predator blood without using special effects would be, to use a glow in the dark paint, combined with a light colour. yellow is a good choice for that... lol
In the mean time I am working on a plugin. So you will have to wait a bit longer. redface

Yeah, all you'd really need is glow in the dark neon green paint. If its not fluid enough add water and if its not thick enough add flower or corn starch. I think useing something like that would look better in reel life then having it as a plug in. Now, predator gun plug-ins, that could be cool. biggrin

I know it's not the safest way, even though they claim it's non toxic, you could break open a bunch of those glow wands/sticks. They're cheap as dirt, but they smell really bad.

Why don't you just walk your happy ass down to your local sporting goods/hardware and buy some glow sticks. Just activate them and then cut them open and pool on the ground or put in a beaker etc. You can see the liquid really good in sunlight and I think it would look alot better than a plug in.
