I am at it again...playing around with After Effects. I used a plugin called Zaxwerks 3D Flags and, via an included project file, rendered some red crushed velvet curtains opening to reveal an underlying image. The render can be seen here:
In After Effects, I rendered a file of just the alpha channel and another file of the curtains full color. Imported both into Proshow Producer and added the underlying image.
I am interested to hear feedback.
I am also considering making the alpha and full color files a free download.
I'm a big fan of After Effects, been so for too many years to count. So I'm a bit prejudice in your favor too
Here's one of a curtain rising (I actually had to figure this one out):
Here is what the final projects look like:

In order for the underlying image to show, you need to download the ALPHA renders and set ProShow to use as masking layer. The layers should be ordered from top to bottom (for example): Curtains_Rising_-_Red-Velvet_Alpha.mov (set as masking layer), Curtains_Rising_-_Red_Velvet.mov, your image.
I know it's been a good while since I created a curtain file, but you know how it is.
Here's another curtain file with lace trim:
