Can anyone make a Star Wars X-Wing sideview cockpit plugin? Basically, it would be a close-up side shot of the X-Wing but just showing where the cockpit is (as if you were looking at it from the outside). That way, you can bluescreen someone, add this plugin over them and give the illusion that they're flying the X-Wing.

Wouldnt it just be easier for you to make a 3d model (which would retain so much more quality than a plugin) and then bluescreen it? Or better yet, build a little cockpit. Be resourceful. Think of some things that might look good. Use plexiglass or even syran wrap for the windows, and for the metal parts just paint some wood or something.

If you cant build one, I suggest you use blender (http://www.blender.org/)
