First try to increase the quality of the key. Are you using the Chroma key or the color difference? Try using some of the filters in the key grade section as well (I prefer to use the saturation filter). If the problem is still there, align everything like you normally would and then make 3 copies of the "ghosts" right on top of each other. This may or may not work, a picture of the problem would help clear up the issue.

If they're see-through, there are a few likely causes.

A: They're wearing green-tinted clothing. In which case they should wear something different or you can use a different colored screen: blue, for example.

B: There's a lot of light reflecting onto them from the greenscreen. This can be fixed by moving away from the walls.

Those are the main causes, I think.

But like Agent said, you can always copy a few clips of the actors on top of each other.
