If you got a plugin, you need to give details. I personnaly have no clue what you mean. Go into a lot of detail withj it.

You mean something that you put over your actor to make him look like he's a hologram? With scan lines and blue tint?

WOuldnt that be impossible unless you want to do heavy duty masking or wait for AlamDV3 with the freehand maskig? This sounds like a job for.... CHROMANATOR: The Final Release!

yes,it's just a mask i/you put over somone(like the Matrix mask) i saw that in the plugins (movie), but do you think that is so hard to make one, that i shall wait until alamdv3 comes out?

things like this are best done with chromanator. It'll be a whole lot easier.

What you're asking for is a plugin which will alter the original footage right?
AlamDv2 doesn't do that. Brettsta is right though, this is probably possible in Chromanator: Film your actor, use garbage mattes or difference keying to separate him/her from the background, reduce the saturation and then use a garbage matte to overlay some semi-transparent blue tinted interference.

This metod is cheaper than using A.E or Photoshop (Unless you already own them!)

it might be possible in alamdv, you would have to put a bluish tint, and scan lines, then mask it out over your character. There is a current plugin with a blue tint thing, so i guess it would be possible.
