Can someone please make a plugin of the type
of boulder that "chases" Indiana Jones in the movie?

I would like the boulder to tumble towards the camera
and also a side view of it spinning too.

It would be nice if the rock was not a perfect sphere.
The higher the res the better.

wanna be careful when making this one... it may look very fake!

I suggest lots of motion blur/use of other effects such as rubble cracking off and shake the camera lots!

Also, make sure that the boulder doesn't grow large in the plugin quad, as if it is approaching. Keep it a permanent size, and let the user make it get 'closer' by manipulating the quad from within alamdv2.

Perhaps a separate accompanying plugin for debris falling off the boulder might be an idea?

Coupled with a few smoke plugins, this should look quite good...

what i have done is kept the Rock in the same place and size and made it spin, ( i made it a large size ( nearly 720x576 so it can be made small and still keep the quality)

i didn't add dust or shadows as it might be used in space, so i thought people could add some dust fx from alamdv.

if you think it needs anything changed let me know. ( i've uploaded it already )
