How do I do the Cloned Girls effect as see here? http://fxhome.com/visionlab-studio/video-gallery
I can't seem to find a tutorial anywhere.

Thanks,

It's a simply process but it may take some time and trial and error to get it right. My best guess is the following process:

1. The 4 layers were placed on the timeline according to the timing of the jumping, being positioned all from the same source.

2. As each girl appears, the layer is faded from 0% transparency to 100%

3. A gamma effect is added, fading out as each girl jumps out.

4. A displacement effect is added, lessening until it disappears completely

I'm not sure if that's the exact process, but that's what I got out of it.

Yep, that's pretty much how I did it. If you strip out the fancy displacement and filters, it's as simple as layering up each version of the girl and fading them in at the right moment.

To get the perspective right, the girl was shot on a green screen in each of the relative positions.
