I need Crows. Lots of Crows for a fanfilm. I tried making an animated Crow using Commotion, but it looked ridiculous. Can anybody out there help? I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

I agree. I think you should pay a couple grand for some crows.

Hey the only downside to using your plug-in (b4uask) that I can see is if you are going to have alot of birds and you use your plug-in they are all going to be flying in the exact same way. no variations.

Other then that unless you are good with a 3d app. then I would go with the plug-in, unless you need something more detailed.

Why don't you just sprinkle a bunch of birdseed in an area where you know a lot of crows "hang out"?

Then, when they all come, set up, and film whatever. I did that once, it looked awesome.
