Yeah. That's no problem in AE. I've never seen "The One", but if you're trying to do just a basic effect, it's relatively simple using Shatter in AE.
If you can't figure out the details by messing around with shatter, let me know and I'll walk you through it.

You canmake single people "shatter" using shatter in AE, just put down a background plate, bluescreen the person onto it (a still image with blue paint would work from Paint in windows) and then apply shatter to the person only layer.
Sum1 could explain this better than me probably, I ain't really good at explaining.

Make it normally, then reverse it (or muck around with the "force" options, that could possibly hold the harder answer)

right, nice and simple:
Take the background shot and put it as the bottom layer, then take the shot with the person in front of the background into Microsoft Paint or sumthing, then paint around the person in a chroma colour, then make that the next layer in AE, apply the Color key filter, key out the colour, apply shatter, and mess with the settings.

or get yourself a huge piece of blue paper or cloth or a blue wall and use that instead of paint

I want to do the same. I haven't seen the one but i want the people to turn into dust like they do on buffy the vampire slayer. How do I do this i AE?
Beware: Don't know anything AT ALL about AE, this will be the first effects i've ever done.
I'd also like there to be an actor in the foreground when the vamp-person dies. He will be stabbing him in the gut so i want vamp to turn to dust right next to him(behind him when you watch it on the screen)

if you have never used AE before and this is going to be the first time you've tried doing any effect, i would suggest you try soemthing a little easier. If you dont even know the program - it makes it rediculously difficult for anyone trying to help you with this.
Try starting off with some easier AE tutorials off creative cow or something - or search yahoo or google for begginer AE tutorials. Once you get those down you will get a hang of AE alot faster and will be able to understand how to pull off the effect you want to.

If I had all the time in the world i would gladly learn the basic so i understood the program but the problem is that i'm on a tight schedule on this movie so i don't really have the time =/

"The One" used digital doubles (e.g. Matrix Reloaded) made from a 3D app. About half of the disentegration sequence when they're in the driveway near the garage (when the Wormhole is opening) is source footage, and half is CG.
