Can somebody please create a plugin for the ripple the bullet makes in bullet time. I don't know if this is possible with a transparancy. I could use any directions so it doesn't matter. If someone could try do this I'll give you +4. Thanks.

Copy and paste. As with all geocities links. What did you use to make that? I have doubts whether it would look good or not.

You should make a short video clip of it in motion. I want to see it moving.

Its not really bullet time unless the camera is moving biggrin . And if you want the bullet time to look realistic you have to 1. Have the camera moving and 2. The trail has to distort the background (ripples). I'm going to do a test tomorrow so I might be able to post it up. Have fun.

For the record, as there seems to be a bit of confusion, bullet-time is not when you see a bullet going slowly or the ripples...that's just CG.

Bullet-time is when you use computer techniques to create a liberated camera, enabling the creation of partially artificial camera movement.

Nope, its a rather silly name really. "Bullet Time" is where the camera can do things that seem totally impossible like full rotations of the scene from an outside orbit. Most older "Bullet Time" shots were also in slow motion which made the effect even more impressive. With CG this has been taken to a new level where the camera can go anywhere, not just simple rotations of the scene and at any speed.

Bullet Ripple is a more appropriate name.
