Hi there. I could really use a 3d image of a SPAS12 Shotgun that can be viewed in multiple angles. I want my character to have the gun, and then have a Jedi use the force to pull it out and fling it a different direction in midflight. Anyone interested?

dude . . . . shotguns . . . and the force? shouldn't he be makin sabers float?


but anyways . . . a question - do you already have a spas prop which the character will be using, and only the te plugin for the flying?


if you have the prop just reverse footage of the person tossing the gun - it'll look better - -

get a good prop just cause too!! wink i got one with a FOLDING STOCK and it's pretty darn cool . . . . it shoots things

Mecha, the thing you suggested would work under normal circumstances. But I think he wants it to suddenly switch directions in mid-air, which I can't see being possible with reverse footage or the like.

Yep, you got it right...already have a SPAS12, but I want to switch direction in mid-flight...Yes...I am using the force and shotguns...this is a spoof movie, not to be taken seriously, but I would appreciate serious effects. Thanks guys.

You're right Mecha....Alabine Armor was so good no one should attempt another Star Wars film, even if i'ts an attempt at a spoof. One thing I've learned from this Forum is to not dog others ideas until you see a finished product. You indeed are a slave to your mind. The door is closed, open it and it will free up some pretty unique ideas. As it says in the Bible,"Everything under the sun has been done". How many years ago was that? It's up to us to put a unique spin on things. I see you are a creative person, utilize those talents and let others explore there own individuality. After all, that is truly all we have that belongs solely to ourselves.

Try making it a physical effect.
hang the spas from the thinnest monofilament fising line, front and back. then film it in front of an evenly lit solid color (like a wall or blue sheet), flying as you want. blue screen it to the finished product. i'll probably look better than a plugin, easier and more controllable in flight.
