- Temperature (Snow & Rain --> Fog already exists)
- Black smoke from a big fire
- Locomotive smoke
- (There's already Crosshair, why not Binoculars, Spy Scope & Camera Recording?)
- GhostBusters (Green ghost & White ghost at the beginning of the 1st movie in the library because there is the stream effect but where are the ghosts!)
- Back to the future's time travel effect & lines of fire created by the wheels
- Yellow & Red winking eyes (like in a dark forest)
We already have these, or things that can be used for these...

We have rain - av11d made it...
We have Black billowing smoke for the fire and locomotive - Kermz made it...
We have spy scope and record overlay - dunno who made them smile
We have some ghosty things (checkout the alamdv2 trailer) - someone made them confused
We have a fire trail, and lots of lightning which can achieve the bck to the future time travel effect - some people made those...
And we have the scary face, which i made, which could be used for little blinking eyes in the darkness smile

- Music notes that fly away from a radio
- Music lines with notes that fly away from an instrument
- Natural disasters (Tornado & Lava)
- 3D driving school bus from many angles
- More water effects (there's only the splash hit yet)
- UFO green light when sucking people from the sky
- Shining little white star (on something new or on a white teeth)
- Sunshine in camera (the lens flare but no light)
Right, now on a second look smile

Music notes - i am thinking about creating some of thses in max, this was requested the other day, and i have been giving it some thought smile
The tornado - kermz said he experimented, trying to make a plug-in of this, but it didn;t look very good, because it can't interact with the environment unsure
School bus? i am sorry, but that would be lame confused
Water effects - i am trying to make an underwater explosion with bubbles and stuff, that would make a cool plug-in smile
UFO light thingy - i requested this aaaaaaages ago, but no-one seemed to make it, maybe u can use some of the effects already made to customize ur own confused
The shiney star thing - checkout the multicoloured phaser muzzle flash, that would be good for this smile
And sunchine in camera with lens flare, u can just use the current lens flare, but put the light where the sun is, so u won't see the light, but u will get the lens flare smile

Just trying to shorten ur list some more wink

On the UFO light -- are you thinking of like a beam of light that comes down from the ship, to beam someone up or whatever? I could probably do that one for you. Any specific colors or effects you want in it?

Axeman - I have just created on but I might email it to you as I am not happy with it. Perhaps you can muck around with it?

I have updated the plug-ins list and I have a still image of the "Twinkling Little Star". I can make an animation with Premiere's motion, but I'll ask KermZ to make the plug-in cuz I never used the plug-in program yet!

mmm - y kermz? u do realise there are other plugin makers too, right??

no offence kermz, i know u r the plugin god, but it does annoy me a bit when people don't recognise other plugin makers, such as myself, axeman, av11d and ALL the others...

don't mean to insult anyone, just sharing my view that's all...

can't wait to see some of these plugins they sound great smile

Hey TMM - before you go getting crapped off ... I was responding to GromzWizard's response:

"I have updated the plug-ins list and I have a still image of the "Twinkling Little Star". I can make an animation with Premiere's motion, but I'll ask KermZ to make the plug-in cuz I never used the plug-in program yet!"

There are tonns of good plug in makers, you being one of them. I don;t think I have ever said anything against another plugin maker, and don't intend to start ... read the thread dude. KermZ

my post was in reference to grimzwizards post "but I'll ask KermZ to make the plug-in cuz I never used the plug-in program yet!"...

i didn't mean any offence by it, and i respect u kermz, i wasn't directing it at you, i was just saying to grimzwizard that there are others if u r unavailable etc or if u r busy with other plugins/work etc etc...

i meant NO offence by it, and am sorry u took it the wrong way (having re-read it it does sound a bit b*tchy) but i was just stating my mind...

sorry again dude, u da plugin god!!!

Hey no problems TMM - I didn't really take any offence - I know how well we get on, even if a zillion miles around the globe from each other.

WOW! This is perfect!
KermZ, the only thing you need to do is to make a not-transparent version of your UFO.

Just another reason to get a search option in the plugins section -

But as for the water explolsion - i can't do anything about that - i got it from a game.

But someone who knows real stuff about 3D programs should make one because all they do is make objects . . . . . . crazy
