I have 2 questions about being invisible.
1: does it have to be in front a green screen?
2: I go on mask and i try to freehand it but when i play it i dont turn invisible... i just turn regular.

Can you explain more clearly what effect you are after? Do you want invisibility, like in Lord of the Rings, where a character actually disappears? Or do you want more of a Predator cloaking effect, where the person is camouflaged to blend into their surroundings, but you can still vaguely see their shape?

There are some more specifics on invisibility in the tutorial here
, but more information would be great to give you a hand.

Ah, for that, your actor needs to be on a separate layer from the background. Greenscreen is easily the easiest way to do this, but you could manually draw masks frame-by-frame if you wanted. But even using masks, you need the actor on a different layer than the background image, so you need a clean background plate, with no people, and you need a layer with the person cut out, either using greenscreen or masks.
Then, apply a displacement Map to the layer of the person, and there you have it.
