Hello!

For my new film I need 2 plugins

1. The Fog overlay originaly created by Av11d. This plug-in is great but could someone modify/create one that also is loopable or strechable and has transparency?

2. The rising smoke plug-in by Billy3d. Can someone modify/create one that also is loopable or strechable and has transparency?


Thank you very much in advance.

i agree, +1

in fact soooo many good plugins on here lack the loopable and transparncey thing.

Also some othe plugins i wanted to use have a dark/black border around them, such as cloud swirl ( i really wanted to use that cry )

So if anyone has spare time on their hands maybe they could go through some of these plugins

also some that go out of the quad ( it makes it hard to place them )

i would be very happy.

*hint: everything is transparency-able smile Just put a mask over it and adjust the transparency! It stretches too!

but your right if you only have the one effect.

I guess I could break it up for the transparency but I still need the effect to loop. PLEASE!

I discussed this with Billy a few days back and we came to the consensus that creating loopable plug-ins are impossible in Illusion (or we haven't figured out how to yet, at least). Illusion seems to generate particles randomly, and does not repeat sequences in cycles so as to make them loopable. We're still working on a solution. smile

Yea, making a plug-in loopable is really hard, in any program. I could make it really long if you want though. I'll see what i can do.
