switching places with an NPC on the fly?

For machinima purposes, I was wondering if there was a way for the player to jump into an NPC's body instantly. Just so you could keep a scene going....assuming you were recording by yourself, and dealing with bots and what not. I think this would be an amazing feature. Does anyone know of a mod that allows this?

No but there is a way around it, first download simple native trainer (if you haven't already got it)

Then let's say you want to walk up to an airport and see a helicopter take off (then switching to the view of the helicopter). Here's how you do that, first just use the normal player to walk up to the airport, then spawn a duplicate of the person you were playing with, then get into the helicopter with the other person and take off. Now you can simply use the video-editor to film the helicopter from the duplicate's standpoint (and cut out the part of you switching between persons and getting in the heli).

Hope that helps, I don't think there's an other way to do this. Other then perhaps switching between views (so you can't remember where the car/heli was anyway).
