Matrix Bullet Trail Effect

how do i get that ripple effect like in the matrix?

try blender magazine issue #9. It has a tutorial in ther explaining how to make a rippling kind of dislacement that look like a heat wave.

ok, i’ll look that up.

and, how do i change cameras in animation per frame like in the matrix, too?

You could IPO Keyframe the camera position ?
or you could try this tutorial looks ok - not tried it yet though

umm…
how do i install python, because that script isn’t there…
and i want it to be like hndreds of cameras, like in the actual matrix.
look at this:

the Camera Changer script is bundled in to Blender (at least in 2.46). It works fine for me and on this computer I do not have Python installed. Open a scripts window, choose Scripts / Animation / Camera Changer

yeah…
apparently, my version of blender 2.46 came with nothing.
i don’t have any scripts…

and i don’t like that ripple effect…
i’m looking for one with the little clear circles, you know?

Usually, the scripts are located under the .blender folder and then the Scripts folder. There should be a bunch of .py files in there. If your scripts are located elsewhere, pull down the top menu bar in Blender, click on the File paths button and choose a new folder for the Python Scripts.

yeah…
theres just somethin called luxo or somethin in the scripts folder…

Download python here. Also, are you using an unofficial build? Maybe it doesn’t have the scripts in there.
