I got an idea of how to doa matrix core. The person who did flubber should be able to do it. Okay here we go: the matrix core looks like water doesnt it? So all what one of you should do is make some water rings on a blue backround and then anybody could insert it into a movie and it would automatically refract the backround.
isnt it simple.
I cannot do it but maybe one of you more skilled ppluginmakers could manage it.

Would be cool if you made it.

Kermz is the man he made flubber.

He made the Stargate plugin thats used on my film, and it had a water fx, that i used up close ( to make it look like it was seen from the other side of the gate ) this is the sort of fx i think you mean,

you could add transparency to it and it would look cool

good idea +1
I can't do liquid or fire but there are a few on here that can.

okay wise guy. It looks like rings made out of water. I watched the same scene atleast threebillion times. I think a good matrix core would be if someone made a water seethrough ring plugin than someone can make lots of rings and this is how a matrix core actually works okay. Kapish.

Ok. first I wanted you people to know that all the trails in the movie have watery rings. okay, if you kermZ would be able to do water rings or just water bubbles of some sort that would help a lot. Another positive thing is that millions of moviez would be made ( amateur moviez ) cause of the effect. It is the most common effect.

secondly kapisch is 'understand it' or ' get it '. It is what the italiens say.

kapisch.
