Birds2 a different take

In regard to bird plugins. I was hoping for an animated plugin of birds flying towards the camera (so to speak). They could be black crows/ravens or white doves, pidgeons even (but most likely some type of black bird for me that is).
Just that there is a flock of them and they fly at the camera. This could be used in conjunction with an image that pulls back from a figure in dark clothing. Ah ha! Sort of Matrix Reloaded/The Prophecy 3.
Similarly you could just make a couple of single plugins of just one bird (perhaps at a few different angles, not many I'd say 3 would do to make it interesting) flying at the camera and people could just place them multiple times in the frames.
Would be very handy for my Gothic movie

I'm doing a bird flying, it will be a close up flapping wings,
what you need to do is:
Resize it to make it look far away, then make it get bigger as if it flys towards to screen.
if you want more birds then do the same, but stager the star times so the fly at different speeds.
should be done and uploaded today ( sat ) so keep looking for it in the plug ins.
hope this helps.

It's a good idea, the bird thing. Ages ago I started watching John Woo films I thought, great this guy does films how i'd make 'em. So I would always like his stuff. Now I've become a film maker, so it's not so good, as it means I rarely have an original idea. Anyway the symbol of peace juxtaposed against mass bloodshed. Is always very visually stunning, I want some Doves. I command you, Get me my dove, anyone.

Can you make me a white one please? At least this will give me something to get started with for my Woo films!

No problem, the black one i done is like a crow / raven, with claws ( tallons )

Yes, a dove-type bird is what I need. One flying at the camera would be great. Could you do one that flies from left to right or right to left? And perhaps a rear shot of the bird flying away FROM the camera? Know what I mean? Sorry to confuse you!
My website works for me, but it does sometimes go down.
Also, wheres the raven in the plugins bit?
Lemme know when you make the dove please. Thanks a lot!

Thanks a heap for the black bird flying plugin *Phew! Faster than a speeding bullet* I wasn't expecting it so soon.
Would it also be possible to get perhaps some 3/4 type views of the bird, like flying from the centre to the edge of the screen.
Oh, and (not meaning to sound rude) can I have them with out the legs, or shorter legs, and if the legs are in it can they be grey or black coloured. (don't mean to sound selfish).
Thanks so far though, it's GIRRRRRR-RREAT.

I'd have to say a black beak or a dark grey one, thanks. Also I know this is asking alot but could you make some varying sizes (I know I can resize) but I think I'll use some decently small ones as well as large ones.

Yeah, if you're doing doves I'd like them without legs too please. Any chance of doing a 3D one like I asked in my other post, or is that too hard? http://www.csb-digital.com/alamdv/community/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4338
If you look at my post, you'll know exactly what I would like please.
