300 bucks? My o my...


Come on... Make the claws in real. Nothing too serious to do and will be cheaper and 20 $, easiest to use and looking 100 times better than a 3d match or especially an alamDV plugin.

Agreed, Sollthar. If you're going be using Wolverine-style claws to any great extent in a movie, you're going to want to have them as physical props that you attach to your actor.

However, an AlamDV plugin of the claws might be handy for when they go in and out of the hand. A plugin of just the claws, then maybe another plugin featuring an animation of them protruding through a little bit of 'skin' that can then be placed onto someone's hand.

I agree that $350 is crazy or I myself would have bid on them. I just thought some rich pig might want them biggrin

I am working on making some like it. (even though I have no idea what I'm doing)

A plugin would be too hard to control. Unless your person is standing perfectly still.

Or moving very fast... When you track by hand you can get more easily away with it the faster the movements are.

A friend of mine has a knife and sword catalog I was looking through the other day. They had a set of claws for like 70$. Can't remember the name of the catalog, or if they have a site. It may have been Atlanta cutlery, but I'll try to find out for sure.

He well here is a site that is selling Wolverine Claws....now there pretty cheap, $6.99, so I'm not sure how good they are but atleast you don't have to spend a fortune.

Site

I could probably make a good set of claws. It'd take me a while to figure out what I needed to do though.

Make them about this size

I don't want them as big as the ones HollywoodWoody showed me. How much do you think you could make them for?

Interesting. Actually I'd consider making them in wood, which would be much easier to shape. You can then use paints such as those available at http://www.alclad2.com/ to give them a nice faux-metal look.

I agree with Sollthar and Andy: $300+ for a set of aluminium spikes is really over-the-top... for that price you should be getting titanium ones! lol

Well, I work at a machine shop. So all I'd have to do is grab some metal and slice it up. But you're right, wood would be easier. I'll figure something out. Maybe. heh.

And yeah, aluminum is DIRT cheap. the 300 bucks probably comes because they think they're really good.

Museum replicas and Atlanta cutlery both have the wolverine claws in their print catalogs. I don't know if they have them on their sites yet, though.[/quote]
