There used to be an overlay mod at 8eyedbaby which had a short moving clip of B-52s dropping bombs with a black background. But unfortunately the 8eyedbaby website is not available any more. Can someone here make an overlay where there are Japanese Mitsubishi G3M bombers dropping bombs with a light blue background(which resembles the sky)?

This is the B-17 bomber overlay from the, still active, 8eyedbaby site.

Strange. When I do a search on Google with "8eyedbaby the movies mods",the search results end up unclickable. But never mind. Can somebody do a totally new overlay which is similar to that overlay except with different planes and a blue background? It would be simple to just redesign the planes but if we do that, it's like not asking for the permission from the owner of the mod overlay. :)

I have seen the G3M in a video on youtube and it shows it dropping bombs. The video is rather compressed and as a base it would be difficult to track, stabilize and extract frames but not impossible. As for the color that would be easy.

 

Let me check and see if I can get good quality refs and images for the plane's colors. 

 

I'll let you know  soon.

Well.... you know.....it is challenges like this that make life fun and interesting. Modeled, painted and animated all in Blender 2.83 LTS. The animation is 250 frames long and will feature 6 of these dropping they payload. Going to try to get the best image quality in spite of the 512x512 image size restriction for overlays. Come to think of it..why use overlays? you could just add this scene as is in the edit if you use an outside editor.
