Surely it would be more effective to get a terrorist costume and a prop gun and put them on an actor/friend? Then you can film him live and get whatever shot you want, and it'll look 100% realistic.

Just a thought.

Yeah, why a plugin, it would look atrocious. Get some people, yes real life, dress em up, and go for it.

Hmm too bad you don't have AE or Chromanator, you could have used the same cloning technique to do it.

Surely you have more than one friend. Find another person to help you out. Or be creative with your shots so you don't have everyone in the frame at the same time, and cover your Terrorist's face with a mask, and one of you can play the terrorist and no one can tell.

Indeed. Often in films when you think they had hundreds of extras, the only had a handful and filmed them cleverly and had good use of sound, which created the illusion. Filmmaking is all about illusion, don't let yourself be trapped by the real world - you can manipulate things through the lens however you wish.
