Does anyone know if there is a preset that produces the effect in BETWEEN THE LINES, that turns the guy semi invisible ?
The effect looks similar to the alien from the film PREDATOR.
If there is no preset available, does anyone know how to recreate it ?
Thanks in advance.

You don't really need a preset, as it only involves a single filter!
If you open the 'Composite' toolset on any object, you'll see a displacement filter. If you add that filter to the current object, it'll then displace any other layers below it.
For the example of the semi-visible soldier, I did the following:
1. The soldier was filmed against a greenscreen, making him easy to isolate.
2. The greenscreen was removed using the colour difference key, and the soldier was composited onto the background (which, in this example, was a still image of a corridor).
3. The displacement filter was then added to the soldier. This made the soldier clip displace the corridor, giving the illusion of an invisible soldier.
The gradual appearance of the invisibility was achieved using a couple of animated masks.

As long as its green, then you will be fine. But it does need to be chroma green; many shades of green won't work very well, and will just cause you headaches.
