I am looking to add a 'ghost' type effect for one of the characters in my sci fi film. the character may have to appear on screen with the main character in conversation. I have two questions if anyone can help...
1. I wish to apply a preset to just the ghost character so that they appear different, more ethereal I suppose. How do I apply that to the character only? Do I shoot the actor against a green screen then key them in against a background I have shot? How would I add the main actor to the shot if say I wanted to do an over shoulder shot?
2. Can I shoot the actor then shoot just the background without moving the camera to get a ghost effect? (I have tried this by changing just the transparency of the actor) Looks okay but I would like to make the character look more fantastic. Any idea's on this?
Thanks alot in advance
