Hi
Could anyone make a plugin ( like the worm hole one ) but one that bends
( windows media player has this sort of thing )

It could be a gas one, solid, or particle, anything that looks never ending and twists and turns

for use with a Stargate

thanks
B4

Because if someone creates their own from scratch, and builds a plug-in from it, then it is 100% legal.

I'm sure no one is going to mind if you used the WMP footage for your own use, but if anyone ever wanted to create a movie that would have any kind of public release at all, then you would be in violation of copyright if you used it. With an original plug-in, no problems.

That is one of the real advantages of original plug-ins.

good point, but my whole stargate film is a huge copyright law waiting to happen.
( i guess people could go on for hours about using bits from other films, in fact on starwars, Words & names are copyrighted, let alone the images and footage & sound.

but from my point, i make no money from it cry

Right, and as long as you are not making money, and you own a copy of the footage, then technically it falls under the "fair use" clause of copyright law. (For example, if you own Return of the Jedi on video, and you rip the exploding Death Star onto your computer to use in your movie, it is legal. If you don't own a copy of ROTJ, you are in violation of copyright, even if you aren't making money from it.)

But original plug-ins, effects created specifically to be AlamDV2 plug-ins, can be used by any AlamDV user in any production, without having to worry about copyright laws.

Hmm, I'm not so sure about this. It is stated explicitly that no portion of a film is to be reproduced or redistributed in any form. I think that includes adding commercial movie footage to home movies that are circulated on the Net.

I'm just bringing this point up for the sake of argument; I'm sure all of us have used copyrighted material surreptitiously in our own works some time or other biggrin

Moebius, you are right. If you are distributing your movie, then it is not just for your personal use, so technically it is copyright infringement. I should have explained myself more clearly.

This whole copyright matter is such a massive, gut-bloating party pooper, isn't it? I guess I wouldn't be saying that if I were the creator of the media in question biggrin
