    Not really something a VEG file can do actually. To do the job properly you need to green screen.

    By the way, just because I was bored and helped a guy out with a sample VEG, please don't think I (or anyone else on this forum) have time to do it at the drop of a hat. This is really a discussion forum not a freebie zone.

    Yes, same here, I am only that nice when I am heavily mediacted.

    As for the clone effect, well screening is the way.

    I would say that editing is not easy. It took me a year to get any good. You will only learn by doing and not looking for shortcuts to basic editing tasks.

    My advice is do lots of editing, read stuff on editing, watch adverts pop vids / films and think about how they might achieve a particular effect, do some more editing, read the help files, read some more stuff on editing, do some more editing, get a mentor, and do some more editing, listen to directors commentrys on dvds, do some more editing.

    Thanks for the advice guys....sorry if you got the wrong impression, but I was only asking if you had a sample project already made, I wasn't asking you guys to make me one....I asked the question cause I know I read it somewhere that you can make two clips of the same room and overlay them togather to make the effect but I wanted to make sure that that was correct.... well anyway I'll try to think of something else to do.... thanks again.

    The easiest and simplest way to "clone" is to film

    1) set up a tripod and press record
    2) film yourself pratting about in a theoretical left 50% of the screen
    3) film yourself pratting about in a theoretical right 50% of the screen
    4) import to your editor
    4) place the "left" video above the "right" in another video track
    5) crop the right 50% of the top to reveal your left self pratting around with your right self.

    And that's how to make a complete pratt from two halves...
