most effecient way to make a flock of birds

Post by superbanksxb » Fri Feb 03, 2012 12:11 am

im making a short film where i lion is roaring loudly, and there's a tree in the background. i want a flock of birds to fly out of the canopy when he roars. how would you suggest i do that. i was thinking a particle system and change the particles to a bird mesh. but i dont think i will have a lot control over them. and i dont really want to make one and duplicate 20 because that will kill my processor. i have a lot of stuff in this scene as it is. so what would be the best way to get close to what i want?

thank all who answer in advance!
