I have done a huge scene were a ufo flies over a town. and pass a mountain. Now what im looking for? Is there an cgi animated ufo vids or 3d so I can add this to my film? I have pre-videoed the backdrop and edited the filters, and colours andthe film is ready. Is there pluggins/software I can get to add this effect on my film? If you can help I would be very greatful. Software I have so far, Visionlab, Cinema 4d. Carrara pro 5. and I am getting Imagesoft. they software pixar use for there Cgi movies.

I would go to the AlamDV2 plugins library for that one.

Seeing how he doesn't have an fxhome product, he cannot download plug-ins even if he did find them. And I would try to use a mini UFO against a greenscreen and fly it around and key it out, or you could download a free 3D editing program like Blender, if you want to use 3D for it.

Have you actually bought any of those products, or do you just 'have' them?

Yeh thats good software I have this too. Ver10. I believe theres a new version. At the moment Cinema 4d is a lil too out of my league. but I am learning it slowly. I find carrera 5 is good, I manage to doa ufo on that, but Im having probs with a couple of frames in that. But thanx for suggestions.

Heh, this...

You sure u own the product? It isn't showing up on your account info. Is it under a different username? As for UFOs, there's gotta be footage somewhere. They aren't exactly obscure corners of science fiction. Right? :}

Cinema 4D is not an FXhome product, so I don't belive it will be showing up in his account stats, if your refering to the VisionLab comment, he already stated that his brother owns it.

If your willing to spend some money this software looks really good.
