I don't know what your talking about. Do you want to know what the plug-in is like or what it does or something?

At this point, there are more than enough ALAM plugins to do virtually anything with energy that you could possibly need. You do NOT need a plug-in that is specifically called: "Star Wars Wave Force", you merely need to go thru what is already here and see what looks like a wave.

Top of the list would be SHockwave. Mask it so only half of it is there and yuo have a great outward wave push.

Or skew Megashield so it is an oval other than a circle and tween it to grow and expand.

Or Dave's Energy Ring

Or even just tween a semi-transparent light source to grow from your hand.

Dont let ALAM do all of the thinking, the program is supposed to work for YOU. Seize it and make it your own.


My upcoming movie has a Suck-all-the-magic-into-your-eyeballs-and blast-it-out plug-in. Except ALAM has no such plug in, so I combined several existing ones and made my own kick ass effect.

Creativity and resourcefulness are certainly important when it comes to making effects (with or without AlamDV), but I would hate to think that AlamDV has all of the energy effects one would ever need.

The possibilities for new plugins are limitless and I know I'm not alone in welcoming any new energy plugins. Discouraging requests for new plugins is ultimately counter-productive. One of AlamDV's greatest strengths is its fantastic growth potential, and that growth is fueled by the creative efforts of so many community plugin makers.

Good luck on your movie, ada1989! biggrin

i'm so sorry because i dont have time to see the movie, its to big redface .The simple way is you just see the Shockwave plug-ins in energy field, the force is like that.

Thank for the help anyway.
