Hi I wondered how to make a x wing flying towards me.
I would dodge and the x wing would fly over me.
Do you know how to do it+

This really depends on what you'd like your end result to be and what equipment you have available.

Do you have a green screen and an X-wing prop?

Do you have pre-existing footage of the x-wing flying the way you want it to?

Do you want the x-wing to fly from a distance toward the screen, or from one side of the screen to the other (ie. from left to right)?

You can also use Blender, a free open source 3D program, to animate an X-wing (there are pre-existing models floating around the internet and if you can't find one I have one somewhere on my computer - I used it in Star Wars Grinnell) and then composite into whatever footage you please using composite lab, after effects, final cut pro, etc.

Hi,
I have downloaded models from Scifi3d in the past

http://www.scifi3d.com/list.asp?intGenreID=10&intCatID=10

I had planned to animate and render in blender, but i had a few issues with the import, so i used Vue 6 instead, and composited in visionlab

see here for results
