How to make a fake ghost video

I thought this would be fun to share, since learning about video editing and 3D effects I've learnt a few things and also being as cheap as I am, I have put together a video tutorial on how to make a basic fake ghost video using only free software.

The results will depend on how much time you want to put into it, for me I am going to use this technique to make a series of funny video shorts, well I hope they will be funny.

The tutorial video took me about 20 minutes to make and the actual ghost video will take less than ten minutes.

I also hope that this will give some insight into recognising fake ghost videos that claim to be real, something I will never do.

  11. You can't get the video to play, or you cant get the process to work? if it is the process, it's easy as, add the two clips to the time line, the clip with the ghost/person should be on top posistion, add the chroma option to the ghost clip and play with the slider that appears, it should work.

    Nice tut--would you know how to make a fake ghost on a live security camera? I would like to scare my office employees who like watching the security cameras.

    Thanks

  14. I guess you could dress up all spooky like and strap on some stilts , that would look pretty odd, also a clear plastic bag on fishing wire could probably look odd to.

    Thanks for the comment.
