Who has seen that new Terminator game for PS2 commercial where that guy is walking across the street and he walks out infrount of a car and gets hit and thrown up in the air spinning? Anybody seen it??? That would be cool if someone would make a plugin in like that.
BTW I am finally a GOLD MEMBER!!!!!!!

Do it with Photoshop. A plugin is impossible because of clothing colors and all that...
here you see how it looks like when you do it with photoshop (I worked on about 30 minutes on this) http://www.nccinema.ch/crash.ram

Please do, for the uninitiated (mainly me), explain how you accomplished that.
That is very practical useable stuff.

I had two basic shots. A shot of me walking on the road and then falling, and a shot of a car driving by...
I actually made nothing more than adjustet my position in the first shot. I made two filmstriplayers again, put them over each other and than started cutting...
With the lasso tool I have cut myself out of the top layer (the bottom layer was the car) and adjusted position, angle and blur frame by frame to get the desired animation.. .Really pretty simple technically. But it needs a little time and patience.

Oh, and Andy... I wouldn't recommend taking just ONE single frame and then do an animation with it... The viewer will see that the frame is a still and not actually moving. Use the whole footage and cut out new EVERY FRAME. Than you can have a realistic looking movement.

Actually, I'd think a AE/photoshop combo could speed things up (rotation, angle, position, whatnot)

hehe... Yeah... I think Photoshop is the best tool on earth for special effects...
Did you know it is used in many pro-films too? For example in Starship Troopers. I read about it... They used Photoshop for many of the effects...
