i asked if someone would maybe try and make a preset that i would be interested in seeing. it was a flaming green skull. i went to check on it one day and it was removed. i just wanna know why. was it because there was already a request for it and i just didnt see it? can any of the mods answer my question?

Maybe something you said in the thread annoyed one of the moderators?

Other than that, no idea...

I'll give you an idea.

Get a skull...a model of a skull which can easily be bourght or borrowed. Place it against either a black screen or bluescreen, perferably black seeing as this will not reflect on the skull.

Next film or take a photo of your skull at carious angles, now it's compositing time. Remove the background with keys if it's blue or change the composite mode to 'screen' oto remove black. Add some stock footage of fire onto the skull, do some masking to make the fire look like it's there, finally color correct it all to green, Bingo.

should work

wink

I believe that was the thread in which I suggested using this: http://fxhome.com/alamdv2/plugins/view/824/chattering-spirit-skull

or this:
http://fxhome.com/alamdv2/plugins/view/289/skull

Though for the latter, you'd need to use some grading filters to turn it green. Perhaps the mods deleted the thread because I answered it?
