    It's horrible- I have been trying all afternoon in blender on the 3ds models and its absolutley 'orrible. I think it would be easier to take the thumbnails and use them in photoshop or whatnot... Just a suggestion.

    If you download the Clone Wars trailer from the official site, there is a fantastic shot of Coruscant about 15 seconds into the trailer.

    You could use a photo editor to combine a few frames and get rid of the traffic, then add your own traffic to the still matte using whatever 3d app you've got working.

    (What do you have working? Is if Bryce? I know Bryce reads 3ds and not Max.)

    Have fun!

    There are a few here, but it's really better to begin with the manual, Adobe manuals are pretty good to start you off.

    looks like i wont be getting After Effects after all, the guy i was getting it from now wants me to pay £100 for it, thats a £100 more than i have at this moment, so i will look for a free copy somewhere else,

    You can get legal versions for £100, but the manuals cost extra....riiiight.

    In Desann2002's defense he may be refering to a student discount. Some times colleges will sell older versions of software for a great discount. At times, the manuals do cost extra. By manuals he may be talking about the extra books that you get at bookstores, like the 3DS Max, or Photoshop, or After Effects Bibles.

    Maybe it just works differently in England, but when I bought the student version I just got the whole package at much lower cost.
