Still workinig on our matrix film. Let me know, does this ripple work well enough to put in the movie or should i come up with something else.

Well, personaly I think that you need to start each ripple small and then expand it. So that each ripple will grow bigger and bigger and then fade out.
At the moment it looks like each ripple is just a ring hanging in mid air so they need to be animated a bit.
Other than that it looks good.

P.S I don't know if you know what I'm talking about so maybe someone else can explain better.

Sigh of relief thank you for taking out the ripples you had in the trailer. Much much better but make sure you start the bullet time right before he shoots and make sure you slow it down alot more. Your guy should only take one step before the bullet gets to his target let alone three. Also I suggest that you save the bullet time only for the super dramatic moments. If you watch the first one they only use bullet time three times all of which are meant to show you something. Also if you have a frontal shot of the guy shooting I suggest using that.

Yeah that looks pretty good. It should be smaller at first, and it should definitely be slower.

Honestly, that was crappy.

The fake zoom looks bad, and the rings aren't supposed to be rings, just discs. And they're too big and thick.

Yeah, everyone should try to avoid fake zooms.

I thought it looked ok actually, i agree that it perhaps needed to start smaller though. Also i dont think the muzzle flash works too well - as your going in super slo-mo, yet the muzzle flash lasts as long as it would in normal time. Possibly needs lengthened, or smoke added? I dunno, you'll know what works best tard

Good though
