Please hear my plea before flaming this post. i know that this has been asked for a lot and i understand that the bullet trail from the movie isn't possible so i am not going to ask for that. what i am interested in is the bullet trail in the matrix game. in the game the bullets are followed by a rippling white trailer that is similar the the movie, except transparent white. please if anyone has the game and is any good at making plugins please can someone make this plugin. biggrin

It's way too easy to just sit down, open up after effects and make a simple bullet trail like that. The problem with asking for a plugin of it, is that no one knows exactly what your footage looks like. What direction is it going to be moving? Etc... Let this be the end of Bullettrail plugin requests. There are quite enough already and they should appease the people who don't want to/can't do it themselves.

That's not bad, fallen. A bit different from how I do it, but with similar results. Just goes to show that you should be creative and find new ways to go about doing things.
