    Does anyone know how to create the trails/waves of a bullet like you see in the matrix and other movies. Or is this just a 3D thing In MAYA or MAX. Any toughts would be greatly apprieciated

    Never done it but I thought it would just be some kinda distortion. Involving raytacing on max/may and some kinda nice glass/gass shader. Failing that, you could do something with gradients and circles and then using them to drive a distortion plug in on the footage you want to do that with. I’m just guessing but that’s what I would try if I had to do something that looked the same ..

    Good luck,
