I have seen quite a few movies from the cinema, but a lot of them only use alam DV for the gun shots. Do the authors of plugins have short clips of the way their plugin is used? as a video file?
Also, so many of the movies have people disappearing into smoke. and i think thats awesome. like "Rose" has the guy disappearing. is the footage shot in front of a colored background and then chromakeyed? or is it done some other way?

For "Rose" I erased this "guy" (wich is me) frame by frame using an empty plate shot as the background. There's not really an other to do it.

You have a shot with your actor, and a second shot - exactly the same angle - but showing the empty background only...
Then you import both into Photoshop and erase everything you don't want. The empty backgroundpic will be to fill the holes with correct background information.

that is awesome...!!!! do you know where i can get the tutorial for that? whats the effect called? how long does it take to make?
im good with premiere and pretty good with photoshop...
and even when they show a person breaking into small peices, is it done the same way? you mean you dont need ALAM DV for that?

No, a person breaking into small pieces is something completely different. You'd need a 3D tool for that.
(for example the ending of my film "the test" where the bad guy shatters in pieces is done with Cinema4D)
Try importing your footage into Photoshop. If you say you're good with photoshop then it shouldn't be much of a problem. it just takes a lot of time.

Sorry to be so dense, but when you talk about "importing into Photoshop" are you meaning that you open a "picture" in Photoshop? and if so, how do you convert the frames of your video into seperate pictures and then put them back together? I have done this using a program called Viscosity which used to be made by Sonic Foundry, but am not always successful and would like to know of another way to accomplish this task. By the way, I really enjoy your work, the effort you put into it is obvious.
