Ok, so most of you think I am a mindless violence fanatic. But no. I just messed around in FXLab till I got the best looking shot I could create, so I figured I would show you.

What Am I making you ask? http://youtube.com/watch?v=Eajb9OdMmo8

Where Can I get the tut? http://variablevolume.com/tutorials.html

Credit to Andrew Kramer for giving me this sick, mindless Idea.

Realistic? Pretty sure that gun wouldn't completely vaporize your head. Blow a big chunk out the exit side, probably, but certainly not take the whole thing off.

And if your idea of messing around to get the best looking shot you can is simulating suicide, then yeah, I'd say your a mindless violence fanatic. smile

This isn't your idea. You obviously got the idea from Video Copilot and i think you should at least credit Andrew Kramer because he was the one who came up with the method and you just adapted it for effectslab.

Um, 1501, can you please show me where I said it was my idea. Why not jjust say "Wow tommy, thanks for the tip!". Obviously im not using AE, Im using FXLAB, so if there isnt a tut for it on fxlab, why shouldnt I be allowed to make one?

But yea, I did get the idea from him. So, I will credit hi
