I think a good effect would be to have Wolverene's blade come out of a hand! How you could do it would be simple:Make one animated blade from the front and/or the side, and to make it look good, the actor would just hold his hand still for a second (or so) size the effect, and use the mask effect to fix any problems with fingers getting in the way. If anyone needs something clarified, tell me.

That's a neat idea, but may be hard to implement. smile

Btw, I think your poll categories are a little lukewarm: how about "out of this world" and "off the map"? lol

I made wolverine's claws.

I have done loads of angles, so you should be able to make it look like they are real.

there are in the plug ins now.

I was asking for these awhile ago... it is really hard to make them LOOK like they are coming out of the hand and make them look real.

So... what did I DO? I made a REAL set of claws (with help from friends!!)

I will post pictures when I get back to the other computer in a few minutes.
