They need to refract more from far away because you can't really see any trails.

Its not like an overlay onto your video. That could never work. So you have to make a mesh in a 3d program that deforms like a bullet trail and then give it a material that refracts. Then you have to render with your background footage behind it so that it refracts the background.
Bullet trails are an even longer process if your camera is moving. You have to motion track the camera in your 3d program so that the trail will move correctly with the camera, 'ala ICARUS.
I hope that clears up at least something for you jessy. I highly suggest getting in tune with a 3d program. You may be a little young as you probably dont know a whole lot about geometry and what not but give it a try. It gives your movie atleast 2 stars more in the cinema if your movie has 3d effects.

He dude, very impressive peace of art. I have one question though...
Hoe heb je die matrix-code gemaakt? Echt heel goed gedaan!!
Als je tijd hebt, mail me even op firstname.lastname@example.org
Greets, another Dutchman!

I don't know if you want to make a bullet too, but for the the rings:
create a sphere and click 'select and uniform scale' . scale the sphere in front or left view from left to right. (a little bit more clear: the ring can't be a sphere ofcourse, it must be a ring, so all you have to do is flat the sphere till it looks like a ring.) right click on the sphere and click 'properties' uncheck 'visible to reflection/refraction'. now open up material editor and assign a material to the sphere. in this material go to 'maps' rollout and click 'none' by refraction. choose 'thin wall refraction' from the material map browser.
the important thing is that you must have a background, else the sphere can;t refract anything. so go to the 'environment' menu and select a background. copy many rings behind each other so it looks cool and make them different from each other. done:D
another thing: I don't use alam dv:( because you can't match a virtual camera to the real camera (footage) i use 3dsmax to make effects
but alamdv rocks anyway:D

Ik heb inderdaad Studio MAx. Maar ik heb er nog nooit iets mee gedaan. Dus een newbey op dat gebied.
Maar misschien kan je me wat tips geven omtrent de bullet-rings
Thanks in advance,

He said in his post "Another Dutchman!" therefore, you should be able to deduce that he is in fact, Dutch.
