Hello, as a lot of you know, cloning in effects lab is possible. I know how to do it, but in the new composite lab demo video there is a part where 2 clones play catch with a ball, will someone make a tutorial for me on how to do that? In effects lab lite. Thank you!

OK I've just figured it out.

here is a BRIEF overview. Just to get you started.

1.) Film each clone going about their buisness (Keeping the camera angle the same. Thats important).

2.) Make them two seperate clips and import them to Elab.

3.) Put whichever clone clip first, and the other on top.

4.) On the top clip, mask out the half, revleaing the other clip/clone beneath. If you kept the camera angle the same it should look reasonable

Yeah that wasn't well explained... but give it a go. Tell me if it works!

They might have cut the ball out of the clip and adjusted it's movement in the air then went back the the real clip when it landed in the clones hands. It wouldn't be that hard with such a simple object and greenscreen so you wouldn't have to worry about shadows.

I don't think this is possible in EffectsLab but a task that can only be done in CompositeLab sad
