No, but you can take a person, dress em like a soldier, and have him shoot a gun. This is not something for a plugin

KermZ may be able to make you one with a stormtooper pointing a gun. You could then add muzzle or laser effects in Alam. Send him an internal email - PM.

Oh, & be sure to buy Alam too! twisted

Well a plugin for that would look really terrible. Clone your self then with chromy, or do some trick camera work

Why would it look bad? If he is behind a bust or tress I could mask out bits so the main body and face with gun is showing.

cant you do anything for yourself? That would be easy to do! Just get a costume and do it yourself! Alam DV doesn't make your movie, you make it, Alam just gives it "zing".

Saying it would look bad is being generous...

To put it very simply,

A soldier would be made in a 3d program, Alam is a 2d program, thus converting a 3d all around visual, to a 2d one direction visual.

Go to the costume shop, get a stormtrooper costume, put it on, play the part of the stormtrooper, play the part of whoever else, cut and paste in AE, Premeire, Chromy, any program that does compositing.

PS. Even if someone made the plugin, it would be made for you and you alone, thus everyone else could rarely find any use for it, and to add to the situation, making a plugin would be redundant, especially considering you don't own any CSB products, let alone AlamDV2. neutral

redundant? or do you mean irrelevant?

Any way, he's right. I know you are new but still, read up on some of this stuff before you waste our time.

Redundant: Exceeding what is necessary.

How much money are storm trooper costumes, too make it look decent? Because he may have a low budget. Oh, that wasn't a rirorical question, I'm curious.

You can get them for far less than 1000 dollars at a costume shop in your town. I've seen pretty good looking ones for less that $100. I mean, it's not like they have to be movie replicas... confused
