i'm not really sure what your asking, but it would seem that your asking someone to take that picture of a shuttle from one view and somehow make it be another view. So instead of the shuttle being facing the camera, it would be facing in a different direction. This is not possible unless you have the 3D scene that the person used when making that shot. If you had that 3D scene, you could just move the virtual camera to a different spot. But using just that footage, it isn't possible unless you remodel the whole thing. Very very very hard.

I think your best bet would be to redo the whole 3D scene altogether... if you can do 3D...

All video editing programs read all images as 2D... flat. You would need an actual series of 3-Demensional images of what you are talking about to accomplish this task... unfortunately.

Follow this link to a whole slew of old AlamDV plugins of various Star Wars ships. I'm not sure if the exact shuttle you want is in there, but you might find something else that will work. Mostly they are just still images of each ship from various angles; some are animated. Perhaps you can find something that will work, then you just need a background to put behind it.
