I'm so lost. I'm trying to do a ghost effect. Basically a live person that has a ghost of another person inside him doing the same action. I've tried opacity in After effects and the color washed out. Ive tried placing a 3ds model inside my person but still not quite right. I've thought about make a 3 model of the live person and the ghost person but at this point I'm starting to get confused and lose my focus. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Her is a link to someone that did something very similar to what I want:
That's pretty darned good, if you ask me. Nice goin'!
Since you can control the 32DS Max stuff -- but you can't control the movements of the actor -- you may want to look into the capabilities of 3D matchmove software. I recommend looking at an application called Syntheyes.

So you've got the assets already, but you're having trouble compositing them together convincingly? Can you post some images of what you're working with and what you've tried already but didn't like?

Ok this is my best effort. I'm a newer student so I know its not up to par. I'm practicing with just a skull first and no tracking just to get the effect right and then I will put either "poser" or a live person underneath. As you can see the skull looks more like a mask than something underneath the skin. Other than the 3d model and tracking what is the difference between what I did here:
