sorry about that, but I don't get it.
If I would do an animation that looks almost the same as a sequence from any
movie.
But, I do everything (the modelling, objects, scene, FX just everything from
scratch again on my own).
-- To much work, but just as a question --
In that case, I would have to ask the guys who made the movie for
permission???
