Has anyone got or can make some different shotgun muzzle "flashes" all in one plugin? The Cinematic Muzzle Flashes dont look real on shotguns cos shotguns eject dush and a lot of smoke when they fire, rather than just a simple flash like a handgun.

Can anyone help please?

Good point, you might want to try this.?


for my new statrgate film General Hammond has a shotgun, i've found if you use a mussle flash and add vampire dust 2 ( a somke plugin ) this has a kind of dust with bits in it effects, give that a try, but if anyone makes one that would be great.

I usually use firework to create shotgun fire... hmm... maybe I could film a small burst of fire and smoke in front of a black screen... Ill give it a try. But I can't promise anything...

Actually, real pistols shoot out a noticeable amount of smoke when they fire, and most assault rifles are just flashes, with not much smoke at all. Go to a firing range and get experiance! I did that! cool
