Does anybody have any idea how to copy the effect of this classic video.

I don't even know what the effect is called.. so I can't google for help.

cheers

Alex

If Kallie's recommendations work, that's great.

Just know when your example video was made, the original was ALL ANALOG. It took a triple-reentry switcher, an Ultimatte keyer, and shooting a monitor of the key to use as a background. It kept feeding back on itself to create the multi-layered effect. You had to be really careful to set up the effect -- it was done in live action. No post.

I appreciate it was quite a complex effect to try and recreate.. I found the beauty of the old effect was it was shot mostly against a black background.

Made getting a Lume key a lot easier..

I've fudged a way, with a bit of Roto, Delay and echo.

thanks for the responses

Alex
