wink Sorry, I am spanich and my english is very bad !!


I need a fire bird ( phoenix) awakening from down to up, I use alamdv flames with Illusion particles to make a fire aura around an actor, then the phoenix rise behind the actor,, for the tiger is the same process.

the electric would be a blue tiger with lighting bolts around him, I suppose that the lighting bolts could be maked with after effects plugins and alam dv, only need the tiger wink

GREAT PICTURE ! I was seacrhing for phoenix pictures to make photoshop composites but only in Elfwood art website can find someone.

In alamDV plugins there is a bird plugin, with other colour and other movement path could be great.

Although I don't quite know how to do devent plugins yet (I am working on it) I do think that conceptually this sounds excellent!

I like the idea of both the tiger and the phoenix, however I think more explanation is needed.

The way I see it from what I understand is that you have your actor standing centre (or whatever) and:
-step1- they become engulfed in flames.
-step2- from the flames a phoenix rises and floats into the sky (this could
be like the internal spirit guide being released.
-alternate step2- a phoenix floats down from the sky and is absorbed by
the flames (this could represent a person becoming
imbued with the spirit of the phoenix)
-step3- the flames subside.

Similarly for the tiger (BTW I love the name electric tiger - sounds like a super hero).
-step1- a cylinder of bluish or whitish or purplish sparkles or phosphorus particles surrounds the actor (I know you can't get a cylinder in AlamDV but you could just create a rectangular overlay of the sparkles) these sparkles float up into the sky.
-step2- a tiger with little charges of electricity coming off him jumps from the (what looks like) back of the shot (so he would be small and grow in size or a bright flash could preceed his appearance) and the tiger jumps forward (over the actor) out of the foreground of the frame.

also for the sparkles you could use the blue rain overlay and rotate it 180deg. but it doesn't sparkle enough, but it's an option.

Also in conclusion, I think that both these would be best done as 2-3 separate plugins e.g.
Phoenix - 1: the fire, 2: the phoenix coming down, 3: the phoenix going up
Tiger - 1: the sparkles/ phosphorus particles, 2: the tiger
So then users can play around with it a bit.

I would just like to say I think this is a groovy idea and could look exceptionally stunning, however I realise that if these plugins were made that they would probably be quite large. All I have to say is I wouldn't care about the size with such a funky idea and I think others would love it too.

Sorry it's a long post...

I think a combination of CG and particleIllusion effects would be best. I'm a dunce when it comes to CG, so I'm afraid I can't help much here smile

Well, I'm not particularly good at any of them...
But I agree CG mixed with Illusion would be good.
Perhaps different Plugin ARTISTS (that what you guys are razz ) could join forces (dark or light) and combine their efforts into creating the various elements of the plugin...

Perhaps Moebius for the "Illusion" stuff and..well I don't know who for the CG.. because there's quite a few of you out there and you're all darn good.

And others like myself can come up with more conceptual ideas. If anyone is interested...I think it would be superduperfantastarrifica!

Yeah, it´s exactly how you explain in your post, I suppose that particles and fire are created by alamdv and illusion, the difficult could be to create he animals.

lol
