    Question Ghost/Spirit Shadows

    Hey guys,

    I'm wondering how ghost/spirit shadows running throw walls and doors in the horror movies, like the one @ 1:39 on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjc2W6i_WE4 are made off.

    Do I have to filme someone on green screen and turn it on a shadow? Can I create it in after effects? Can you guys explain me?

    Thanks a lot, best regards

    If you read the description on YouTube Under the video of this example video, it says you can download the After Effects template it was made with.

    What I wanna know the most is: How do I totally shade a person (make it look 100% black like in the sample) without it losing its 3d properties? U know, making the person all black that we cant distinguish its front/side/back sides

    I am not sure what effect was used. But suspect it came from the wonderful (and expensive) add-in named "Trapcode Particular". Perhaps It is more evident around 02:16 where the body appears to dissolve into a cloud of black.

    Hey Tim,

    Thanks for clear me out.
    And isn't possible to record a person moving on green screen, turn into shadow and apply it to a wall footage or something?

    Can you confim exactly what effect you are referring to? This is from 0:41.
    1 - a blob which has crossed the screen.
    2 - some text which gets lit up as the blob passes.
    3 - a person lying in a doorway.
