I wonder if there can be 3-D plugins for AlamDV2. All I've seen are stills, or animations that I can move, stretch and so on, but none of these were really 3-D, I was never able to rotate it. I think that there are several advantages of real 3-D (for example easier apllying of Wolverine's claws I think), but can it be done?

No. It can't be done. You should try to learn a little how the program works. Once you do, your effects will be more effective (pun intended).

Perhaps, but from what I know (think), Alam puts FX 'layer' on the movie, so if you will be able to put 3-D plugin? Even if this can't be done in AlamDV2, perhaps AlamDV3??? I don't think that's a great change, requiring a lot of hard work. But of coarse, I could be wrong neutral

I mean, custimize 3-D, so it looks like you want, and than flatten it, when you will be exporting your movie.

Erm, that would be a tremendous amount of work. smile

AlamDV is not a 3D program, and was never intended to be one. Some people make use of the pseudo-3D plugins, which is a usage of the program we never envisaged, which is cool. But there are no current plans to make AlamDV a 3D program in addition to what it already does.

A 3D program is a very useful addition to any filmmaker's toolkit; AlamDV serves a different purpose however.

Or Csb-digital could make a 3d program as their next software release...

Anyways, Fertesz, you're still kind of off as to how alamdv works. Alamdv doesn't create another "Layer" where you then add specially programmed plugins. Instead, it's more like adding picture or movie files over your footage, and then moving them if needed. Obviously, a dynamic 3d plug-in doesn't count as a picture or movie, but hey, you learn.

Yeah what you have asked for is way too difficult in AlamDV and only possible by creating the exact effect you want yourself in a 3D application.

The links provided by Lord_Xor are great ... there are many 3D apps, right down to GMAX and MilkShape.
