Hey YouTube, it’s Tech Support Gone Bad and today, I’m going to be teaching you guys how to clone yourselves. It’s not really as complicated as it sounds. All you’ll need is a special little tool called Adobe After Effects
Now the first thing you’re going to want to do is take a shot of yourself in one part and then take another shot of yourself in another part. So let’s say one dude sitting to the left of the shot and then the other dude sitting to the right of the shot. And the key element here is to make both of the dudes, you. So it’s going o be two separate shots and then we are going to edit it in Adobe After Effects to make it look like one shot. So it’s going to look like there are two of you. So now some tips to this is to keep it well lit to have at least a decent quality camera or else it’s not going to look too good and it’s not going to look too realistic and another thing is to not move the camera—that’s very important; don’t move the camera.
So, just to give you guys an idea of what this should look like, let’s watch my 2 video clips. So here’s he first one; it’s just me sitting, taking out a stick of gum and just eating it. Okay so the next shot is of me again begging for a stick of gum from me. Ironic isn’t it? So I come running into the shot, begging for a piece of gum and then he doesn’t give it to me so I get all mad.
So that’s basically it. I didn’t put too much thought into that obviously as you could tell and you want to make them around the same amount of time so you want to make them for example both 10 seconds or both a minute or whatever, you want to make them around the same amount of time. So next, you want to double click in your project window and import both of your things into Adobe After Effects; both of your footage. And then you want to select them both again and drag them down to your timeline. Press OK to whatever pops up; just wait for it and there it is. Okay, so now we have it. So now what you want to do is really, really simple too. Now you would think it would take a lot of steps but no; its super simple all you have to do is select the top layer and then select the rectangle tool right here at the top in your tool thing. You should see a tool called the rectangle tool; just click on that and make sure you have the top layer selected then click down from the middle of the two shots, click down and just make a little rectangle over the first shot, over that guy. Now as soon as you click down, you’ll see that the shot has disappeared; the guy has disappeared in your shot so that’s why once you go over him, you’ll see it. You’ll see what I mean. So for example, if your guy is to the left of the shot, you’re going to make a little rectangle to the left and all of a sudden, you’ll see your guy up here. If he’s to the right, you’re going to want to make a rectangle to the right and all of a sudden you’ll see him up here. In this case, I’m at the left of the shot so I’m going to make it to the left and let go and you’re done; as simple as that. Now there are a couple of stuff that you could do to improve this. But first, let’s watch the video.
Well actually this is taking way too long to be rendered so I’m just going to give you an idea on what it looks like. As you could see, the both of me are in the shot so over here, look, my head is cut off and that’s very unattractive you know? So let’s fix that. you want to click on the top layer again and choose the pencil which is right next to the rectangle tool and just click on it and just drag. So you wanted just like kind of make another thing. You want to drag it and you want to resize it, want to make it bigger and you want to make sure that both shots fit. You could still use the rectangle for this or you could use the pencil. You just really want to make sure both shots fit. And there you go. Now, both shots are not interfering with any of them as you could see.
So another thing that could help this is click on the mask which is if you click on the first layer or the first footage, the one that you added the mask to and press M, the mask should pop up then you want to select the mask and then press F then the mask feather should pop up. So you want to feather it a little bit. Now what this does is it makes it less noticeable—the place where you cut it right in the middle; it makes it less noticeable for that. So it just kind of like feathers it a little bit, it kind of fades into each other so it doesn’t make it that noticeable which is a great feature. And that’s pretty much it, we’re done here and it’s awesome I mean come on I’m cloned; there’s two of me. So yeah, that’s pretty much it. Use your imagination—you can make something way better. I just did not put too much thought into this because I just wanted to get the photo out there and that’s pretty much it. Until next time and I’ll see you guys later.
