Hi all

I'm new to Motion. I am using Motion 3 @ work.
They want me to make a flag to wave.

How do you make a flag wave?

Thanks for the info.
The plug-in is $130. The guys I work for will never ever buy it.
Has to be a filter that will create the same effect.

Are you familiar with displacement maps?
A well created displacement map should get you started.

John,
are you limited to Motion to create this effect? Not sure what you have access to, but this is an easy one to do in a 3D app. If you have access to Cinema 4D you can find a free file on my site that should help you out Hurricane_Flags
I don't use Motion so I can't be much help on that front, but I figured I'd offer this up in case.

There is a under water effects filter in Motion that you could tweak and get a nice waving flag!
