I have a lot of great inside cabin plug ins, and many long shot from above below plug ins - but I cannot find any shots that are mid shot - like I could use as a background (like a matte shot) so when I place people inside the cabin and super this over the matte - they look like they are in the one shot. It would be way great if this mid shot were one of those with long shots also available so I could have them flying away

Are you wanting something like on the bridge of a ship looking towards it or something? I can't figure out what you mean. KermZ

when i read my note back it isn't real clear - oh well. I meant a mid shot of the bridge of the vessel - like the camera was floating just outside the bridge looking back at the vessel. The bridge shots are from inside looking out - and there are also some shots with really cheezy pilots in the seat. I was thinking it would be good to have a shot of the bridge - with a space where the cabing insdie is - a transparent zone. Just the metal of the cockpit over the area. Then I could place a shot of my crew from my own video behind it. Hope I cleared it up.

Be great if the mid shot (not long and not too close so you can see the vehicle around cabin) was part of a family of vessel shots - then you could see it fly to camera, see the crew talking in the cabin, do a reverse so you are looking over crew shoulder through cockpit window, then the long shot as the vessel flies to a bold new wahtever.

OK - now I understand what you want. Given that I have produced most of the ship plugins I will created these for you - but you will have to wait till I have finished writing my reports which should be tonight. KermZ
