I know that this plug-in might not sound that cool, and probably won't be used by anyone but me, but I need it for the movie that I'm making, and don't have the software to make it myself. What I need is a green bush. It doesn't have to be that high of quality, because it is used in a wide shot. What I'm looking for is the classic cartoony gag of someone sneaking up by being inside a bush and dropping down whenever someone looks. In fact, that is exactly what I am doing with it, so that is the type of thing it would have to look like. If someone could do that I'd be very very grateful.

I tried that. That's how we filmed it, but the branches didn't really show up. they didn't have enough leaves on them. since it is far away you can't even tell that i held them.

Um, the problem with that is that the shooting for that part is over and won't be reshot. I don't really have the option to go back and do it again after finding a good set of branches. If I could, I would.

As long as you brought up THAT Bush, though, I might as well voice my opinions. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm scared sh*tless because of this man. Going to war will NOT be a good thing! If he is pissed off because Iraq has been going against UN orders for weapons, why would it be okay for us to go against their orders to attack Iraq? And to all the people that say "How many 9/11's are we going to have to have before we realize that we have to take them out?" I remind you that it was Al Quaida that did that, which is not Iraqi. I pray that he won't get elected again.
It's not just the potential war that is the problem either. There is also the problem that his economic plan sucks. No, he couldn't keep things like Enron and other scandals from happening, but he sure as hell could have had a plan that helped more. Clinton worked our economy up SO MUCH only to have it trashed by Bush.

There, now we're talking about THAT Bush.

Here's the funny thing about the economy...IT STARTED CRASHING WHEN CLINTON WAS STILL IN OFFICE!!

Clinton did nothing whatsoever to help the economy. At the very least, the boom was instigated by Reagan's tax cuts, and then the invention of the internet. Anything Clinton did detracted from the overall rise. In fact, the only good thing about Clinton is that he didn't do much at all... twisted

Iraq is a non-issue for me. Whether we attack or not, America won't suffer much from Saddam. I will argue with your other opinions, though. wink

Well, although I could argue about how much Clinton severely helped the economy I won't because I only posted that because people were referring to the President. I am simply going to say that I think that your facts are off.

Lets not forget that anytime The Clintons were in a scandal all the sudden there was a need to take out "strategic targets" in Iraq or Bosnia. Or even worse lets go to the home town of a Warlord in Samalia and hope our troops can hold back the violent anti-American horde.

-about the Clinton helped our Ecomonmy bit... That is as valid and misplaced as: Al Gore thought he "invented" the internet.
Truth is most presidents are not in office long enough to have any real effect on the way the economy goes. It goes how it goes. We run into problems when individuals speculate on values and manipulte such things to benifit themselves instead of the economy as a whole.

BTW wasn't this supposed to be the Pluggin request for a scrubbery? Funny how everyone saw "Bush" and came running. lol

I think I could make that type of bush, but would have to be 18 certificated and I don't think the site will allow it anyway lol and to be honest what would people use it for? Slap happy time's! confused

But yes people see BUSH and think along the line's of another type of bush lol

Spike cool
