Could someone make a plugin where it's:

1. a. Glass shattering towards the camera
b. Side view of glass shattering

This would be good so someone could fly through a window or something without the need for real glass or sugar glass!

I found that it is easy to just use effects that are already available in AlamDV2 (eg. particles left, particles right) to create the effect of glass shattering. Example: if you group the above mentioned plugins tightly together and place them over an empty window or door pane, the outcome is very realistic biggrin

You might have to group about 12 of the particles together all around the pane, but results are very, very satifactory!!

Just check out the image from my upcoming film to see the effect in action smile

Wow, I must admit that does look good! I've to see the actual video clip to be entirely convinced, though. In the meantime, here's +1 for your efforts biggrin

Then go to my site and check out the video clip of that scene. It's located on the Video Clips Page under the film Dark World: Duel Of The Assassins.
