I want to make a video, in which people are placed in soap bubbles that are moving around. Well, my idea is to create a bubble in photoshop, then add that psd file to adobe premeire pro and move it around with the video of the person, therein. But I'm having a difficult time creating a highly transparent soap bubble in Photoshop CS2, that would look decent. I also have Flash 8, and Fireworks 8--if that's better to use?  Got any ideas? or links to a good tutorial?

If you are interested in installing new software program for 3D graphics you will be able to make the whole movie in 5 minutes. Get Bryce 3D 5.5 it is freeware (version 6 costs a lot) start a new project, create multiple spheres select all spheres and press on the m beside them to edit the material and make it transparent, add the pictures of the people as 2D objects inside the spheres and group each 2D and sphere together by pressing on the G when you select bothat the same time. now move the time line to the next second or 5 seconds. Move your balls around and render the whole movie and you will get what you want. It seems complicated but if you are interested I can provide more details.

I agree with Dr-4n,

you would definitely get the best results from software such as bryce, Maya, or lightwave.

However if you do want to produce the effect in photoshop, The following tutorial may be what you're after.

Oh wow, thanks, guys. The photoshop tutorials are great, and something to fall back on, if Bryce doesn't cut the cake for everything. But Bryce looks really awesome, so thank you so much, Dr-4N, for your help. I appreciate it very much.
