Who the heck would make a paintball movie... without using a real-life paintball. No offense, but this is practically worse than the tree tard

i don't think ANYTHING could be worse than the tree - but the paintball plug-in could be cool for bullet time paintballing biggrin that would be cool - not much other use in it though

Whatever. Still, who want to do a bullet time with a paintball? Probably nobody.

heh, but it does waste bandwith. Especially if you made an animation one. I don't think someone should waste their time making it unless someone specially requests it.

The way he posted & responded, it seemed more like a suggestion than a "must-need" request, if you know what i mean.

I added in the tree in the background of a movie in my garden (although it was still mostly visible and took up a large ammount of the picture) and showed it to my parents and asked if they noticed anything different. They didn't notice the tree until i pointed it out crazy

Alright, for one, I don't think I would ever use a paintball, but if you want me to upload one with different colors I will do that now. There won't be an animation for spinning since it's one color. Just use the blood splat for a plugin, it looks more like paint anyhow wink.

And really, I know you guys are just poking fun, but PLEASE stop hashing Kermz for the tree plugin. I know you guys don't realize it, but it really annoys him when he see's that. Really, just don't mention it. neutral

sorry i hurt your feelings kermz biggrin

Andreas: lol. Your parents should seriously walk around their house. how could they not notice a big tree that wasn't there before?

I think we need a dirt plugin. Some dirt to go around the tree. You could probably just take a picture of TMM's face if you want realistic dirt. j/k.

The only time a tree plugin would be useful would be when people have destroyed all the trees and you want to remind you what a tree looks like. Or when you film where there are no trees and want your actors to hide behind something.

I am sorry if I have offended anyone in this post but come on, a tree?

Alright, I created the paint ball plugins, and they work. Although I designed them in 3D so they had some slight shadow on the side to give the feeling of 'round' and when I put it on black transparent it left a sort of nasty matte line. I'll figure something out, should be up in the next day or so biggrin

I didn't see this topic before. I just uploaded a paintball hit. Not animated or anything. I need it for a movie I'm making. The reason I don't use real paintballs is I have some of my little cousins in it and my parents would freak out if i shot them with a paintball gun to make a short.
