I just thought of an idea, i don't know if it would be good or useful or not but , i just think it might be cool for a crater plugin. Like after an explosion their is a crater in the ground, ithink it would be cool to have a crater plugin.

I wanted 2 make 1 of them, but at the time I didnt know how. Everyone seems to forget that explosions ect, leave marks..yea, Id love to see a crater or 2...perhaps vary how deep/large they are aswell, so the will B even more useful lol

Hmm, a most intriguing prospect... I'll give it a go as well, although at this juncture I'm quite unsure as to how to compensate for the different textures (and angles / perspectives) present on the infinite surfaces that the plug-in can be used on.

I hope yall make them, they will be so cool looking. My friends watch my movies with explosions in them but then after the explosion theres nothing there and they are like that a sweet explosion but theres no crater after the explosion. I think the crater plugin would make our explosion plugins look much better and more realistic.

if you can't do a creater, maybe scorch marks that could be left on the ground and an explosion,?

Oops, I'll have to eat my words for now lol I tried using Alpha Channels to create the crater but ended up with a pretty nasty looking blob. The good thing about it is that I ended up with a plug-in that works well as a bullet hole.

So I've posted my first attempt at creating a crater plug-in... as a bullet hole plug-in instead! lol

I'll keep plugging away (pun intended) at the crater until I come up with something better...

Has anyone tried making any crater plugins recently? Or could someone make scorch marks like what b4uask30male said? I think this would be great added with the explosion plugins lol
