I've have big movie plans but need to know how to duplicate people. You know, have more than one of the same person in the same shot. Any ideas? It would be a lot of help. Thanks guys

Depends on what software you have at your disposal. I wrote a tutorial covering how to do it in After Effects. Located here:http://fxhome.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=58601
Hope that helps.

I just tried this real quick, have your camera on a tripod and dont move it, tell your actor to stand where the first char copy would be and do his actions, then in the nect shot, tell him to do the next chars action. **DO NOT ALTER ANY SURROUNDINGS** then, you can use just about any software and overlap the clips.

Chromanator will also be able to do this kind of thing and it will probebly be a whole heck of a lot easier.

I think even Alam DV can do this. Take yourself in front of a blue screen and put it in the plugger frame by frame.. Maybe not the best way, but it could work.

With Chromanator it would be far easier.

If you have access to a bluescreen and can afford to buy chromanator, then you can always film the character infront of the bluescreen doing whateva you want them to, then composite them all onto the footage using chromanator - this way you can used the advanced interface to get the lighting, contrast, size, everything perfect!

Isn't there a masking option like AE? I find it A LOT more effective than Bluescreening it, though it is sometimes longer if the actors are one behind another, etc.

well, i have never used AE, so i can't honestly answer that, but i am guessing by the team at csb, that they have one yes, so they have the preferrable program, but don't quote me on that one!

also, check out Sollthar's website, and look at the tutorials from when he did "The Test":http://www.nccinema.ch
In this short, we saw sollthar fighting himself, and flipping a big truck, and being thrown through the air!
