Here’s how to clone someone with effects lab.

Pick a dividing point, such as a window.
Film someone on one half of the window.
Then, film someone on the other half of the window.
Go to effects lab, click media, then import your footage.
Drag your first clip to the timeline so it looks like this:



Be sure to start it on the first frame like this

Then click your second clip’s animation and move it to the side it needs to be on, like this:



Your final shot should look like this:

Your approach to this is quite strange. It is more versatile to keep the camera in the same place over two shots, and just have the actor on either side.
