Hello,
Does anyone know if it is possible to place a character on a boat to appear as though they're sailing. Could you put a Green screen over the floor to appear as water moving. Sorry for the ignorance maybe this isn't possible. I want to create a new music video and would like sailing in it.
Thanks,
Chuck

Put the boat and the puppet on a nav mesh (a flat thing that is invisible to the camera but can be moved). Then use one of the primitives (PapaG's?) as the water. You could green screen, but it would probably look weird.

Check out the Google Warehouse TONS of great models of various qualities. I'm sure you'll be able to find a good one!

Hi, when you say check out google warehouse does that mean we are able to put those into moviestorm as props? If so, how would that be done? Thanks! Pat

Putting a simple prop in is really quite simple and you'll get the hang of it pretty quickly. Just follow the directions slavishly and all will be well!
