I was hoping to get some Buff me (oops, I mean Buffy) type plugins.
This next project is to be filmed at a university and surrounding locations i.e., collages (accomodation) and the like and it is set in the theme/world of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Could anyone make some stills of stakes that are thin like chopsticks (or actually chopsticks would be good) and some motion blur ones too? There was once a motion blur throwing dagger but it would never d/l properly. Perhaps the motion blur for the chopstick stakes could range from zooming past/flying horizontal blur to spinning blur?
Anyone get what I'm on about?

Hi

I left this for a while to see if anyone else would have a go.

I was trying to find chopstick / stake on the net, but could not.

i found a wooden stake but it had a handle.

if you want that i can make it.

Why don't you just get some bits of wood? They look, feel and smell just like wood.

The reason why not just pieces of wood is because we are using chopsticks, the reason for the plugin is because I'm going to need them to float/hover and to opperate in slow motion. The reason why chopsticks because they are easy to buy and I don't have to make a prop of a stake for non sfx referencing etc.

However, I would appreciate it, B4, if you did make the stake ones you found, perhaps I can compromise in filming. Would you also be able to get a motion blur effect on them?

I will do that for you,

what angle is it being thrown, i would like to put motion blur in the right direction.

eg:
left to right
forwards towards camera
away from camera.

Well, all thons angles would be excellent, to allow for variety and maybe some 3/4 views too, however if that is too much to ask I will indeed settle for left to right (right to left too) and away from the camera.
THanks!
