Alright, you know the scene in the Matrix Reloaded where Trinity is diving backwards out of the building? I think a lot of people, me included, would find it useful if there was a plug in for the Bullet Time muzzle flash. If you don't know what I am talking about watch the trailer its right on there.

Those muzzle flashes looked kind of...weird. I mean, yeah, they looked really awesome, really nice graphics and all, but is that really what a muzzle flash looks like in slow motion? Cuz there was fire billowing out of her gun in a twisty sort of motion.

But I agree, that would be one sweet plugin.
