I've been messing with all of the bullet plug-ins, and there is only one bullet trail. While this trail actually doesn't look to bad it just isn't too functional. Too short, has sharp edges (yes, I guess you could use masks to get rid of those).

So if anyone out there would make some new bullet-trail effects I think that it would be very useful to the ADV community.

There's a bullet trail used in the AlamDV 2 trailer that looks pretty good.
I was wondering which one that was.

billy, I do you have your bullet trail, and it is very nice. It would just be nice to have one that was loopable and didn't hit the edges of the effect frame.

Good luck to KermZ on that bullet trial!

and played with its tranparency
