Hi. Just wondering...How could I get an electrocution effect similar to the one in the FxPreset library? Also, would it work to take a 3D model of a skeleton, animate it the way an actor moves, then make a rough maske around it and put the electricity thing on it. Then a would flicker between the actor and the electrocuted skeleton. Any help with the effect or feedback on the idea?

Also, does anyone know where I can download a GOOD, FREE skeleton model. I would make it my self, but I SUCK at complicated modeling, and all the details (such as the little indentions/ extrusions in the spine, and just the general skull thing.

Have you tried TurboSquid (turbosquid.com) or a Google search?

Hmmm...couldn't find anything on TurboSquid that was free. So, any other ideas concerning anything on this topic anyone?
