good idea, a place where you guys can pick the brains of the plugin makers. +1

I've been asked about the spiderman animated web.
I used poser ( it comes with a cylinder ) i resized that to make a thin line, changed the color to silver, then animated it, from nothing at frame 0 to frame 16 where i stopped the line.
then using the same cylinder i made a web, a little time consuming, but i saved the web as a prop then imported back to frame 16, resized it to nothing, then resized it bigger over the next 15 frames.

I Just copy this FROM ...............


Dragon Ball

The first thing i do is select the ellipse tool and make a circle, the colour is transparent, then i change it to orange in a colour box. After that i select gradient mesh tool on the tool box at the side and put it at the side of the circle, the i change the gradient to yellow and it will fade to orange and look like a light reflextion on ball, the i repeat this at certain place it it will look like a shine ball. Then i make a star and colour it with red and put it on ball and that is it,I copy and paste the image on Photoshop and make alpha channel on photoshop as you teach me. i'm not good in english, so i'm so sorry if you dont know what i mean and this is the result:-

Help Me

Ok, That is easy but you need time but i made only about 2 hour, first thing is i go to pain and and select the spray mideum size and chose red colour, then i spray on the white backgroud, only one click about 0.25 second and save it to a file then i continue spray it downward A BIT and save it to the same file with other name, then i continue this and make a word. the result is an animated writing image about 200 frame, NOTE:YOU NEED TO SPRAY ALONG THE BOTTOM OF THE BACKGROUND WITH ANY COLOUR SO WHEN IT BE A PLUG-IN IT WILL SUITE, U NEED TO SPRAY, IF NOT, IT WOULD NOT WORK, IT IS LIKE THIS SPRAY WITH ANY COLOUR ALONG THE BOTTOM AFTER U FINISH ALL THE IMAGE, SPRAY IT AT THE FIRST IMAGE AND COPY AND PASTE TO ALL THE IMAGE YOU HAVE CRATE.

This is how i create the angle ring, first i open photoshop then i open pain, i drew ellipse and copy paste to photoshop, then i go to filter>artistic>neon glow and adjust the glow, there is a black line on the middle of the ellipse, what i do, i copy and paste it to paint and chose yellow and just add the colour on the middle, its not look good but i copy and paste to photoshop and go to filter>blur>motion blur and adjust it a few time till it blend.(horizon and verticale motion blur a BIT), its not bright, what i do is i turn it to a plug-in and select the plug-in and copy and paste for x3 then it will look bright. after that a export it to image and went to plugger and i use add pin. and the......FINISH , HEY, I SMELL SOMETHING lol
