The answers you're looking for and more can all be found on Sollthar's site, here... http://www.nccinema.ch/etut.html

That page contains a number of tutorials, including at least 2 dealing with cloning yourself. It also has alot of other explanations about how other effects from "The Test" were acomplished.

Although bear in mind those tutorials are very old. While the techniques are still perfectly valid, I doubt Sollthar would recommend the Photoshop route anymore when you have access to VisionLab. smile

Heh, yeah. What took me hours with photoshop would take me a couple of minutes with CompositeLab or VisionLab today.

The basic technique remains the same though.
