Thread: Any double role tips

    Default Any double role tips

    Hello

    i have a few projects i want to look into doing and one is the music video and the other one is playing a double role of my self. So basically i want to have my self talking to my self in one seen dressed up as 2 different people. what software will i need to do something like this and will i need a green screen? i heard someone say if the background stays the same that i wonít need a green screen is that correct? If the camera does not move will this make things a whole lot easier? How do i get the timing right so i talk back to my self in time?

    Thanks for any help.

    One word: planning.

    Actually, two words: planning and common sense.

    If you think about it, having two people on the screem at once is one of the easiest effects in video editing (and a process I have described numerous times on the forums so I'm not goingto go into detail again).

    The simplest and easiest way of achieving the effect is to divide the screen up into two seperate parts. When filming verison one of yourself, make sure you stay in one half of the frame, and then when filming the second version make sure you stay in the other half. In post, add the two halved together. Just make sureyou don't move your tripod.

    How do you get the timing right? Practice. You could get someone else to stand in for these parts, or wtach the playback on a monitor.

    Its not easy for someone who donít no much about video editing im sure i could find things you would have no clue about, you MUST remember not everyone is at the same level.

    would you mind giving me the link please to where this has been previously discussed.

    I always learn by doing. If I don't know how to do something, I research and have a go myself. Asking other people is always my last port of call - a last ditch effort when I've got no hair left to pull out.

    Your question wasn't technical and could have been answered by someone with no knowledge of video editing.

    i donít really want to have to disagree with you as you might kick me off the site since you are the admin but i have to

    I think you are very wrong indeed to say that how can someone possibly answer the question i asked if they have no knowledge about video editing at all? what you have basically just said is that you can stop anyone in the street and ask them how you do a double role as the same person and they would know the answer to it. If you think that then well you must be in a bubble or something. This question was technical and only someone who has some knowledge in video editing would know the answer to it.

    Thanks

    I'm having a bad day, and am perhaps not being as patient as I usually am.
