Sorry man, but I doubt anyone will make these.

It's nothing personal but alam doesn't do 3d. It only does 2d. The plugins that are 3d right now are basically 2d images. An arm or animations wouldn't look to good, and they wouldn't be of much use. The wounds could be done, but there are plenty in the plugin gallery...place.

AlamDV works best with things that aren't specific to one person's scene. IE: muzzle flashes, explosions, ricochets, etc.

T-100 arms could be done pretty much like wolverine claws. As for more animations. T-800 arms and legs tould be done (hands more easily) All it takes is the right footage. When i'll understand this program better i'll prove you wrong;)

I don't think you understand.

It's not that you cant make a 3d plugin, its just that it wont look good. It'll be a 2d image, and you wont be able to manipulate it and rotate it on 3 axis. Only one in fact.

You could make a terminator plugin, but it wouldnt look right, and you would be much better off using a 3d program.

I agree with Marek. AlamDV is a great program fo many things, such as lightsabers and explosions and muzzle flashes, but not so great for other things like 3D characters. Try googling for blender or some other free 3D program for 3D things.
