This is a screen grab of the composited shot, utilizing the matte submitted earlier (2nd or 3rd page of the gallery).

I love the front projection techniques I read from the manual's examples (the "wee hulk" character running down the road thingy), so I tried it here over the background. Fully comp'ed in Lightwave, then I added a DFT "Halo" effect in FCPHD.

Doggone it! I bet I could have saved the last filtering step by using one of the Lightwave Image filters...???

Looks very nice. Don't know about the exhausts though. That streaking looks weird. Are the engines shooting out stretched voxels?

EDIT:
Nevermind the question, I saw your other post.

Thanks, and yes they might be a bit streched. I had to pump up the velocity (like 1500%), otherwise it just looked like the engines had a cozy fire going (see other post w/front view). At playback, it is very smooth with 75% motion blur. Almost like pulse jet engine exhaust.
