Help with ghosting effect please.

Can anyone guide me to accomplish the ghosting effect where the movements in a background move blurry and fast, but the subject remains focused and at normal speed.

Any help of point in the right direction would be much appreciated, thanks in advance!

I would LOVE to learn this effect as well. It would really help me out with a scene that I'm currently working on.

Sound more like a greenscreen composit than an effect directly applied to a frame or series of frames.

Oh man, i was hoping there was an alternative to using green screen... thanks anyway bro.

I guess the only way to do this with an already recorded footage would be making the whole frame played fast/repeat and blurred. Then applying some masking and tracking combination on the subject?

I would like to mask off certain partss of the frame n show the rest, would the best method be track matte keying?

Jim,

Sounds like you are on the right track, although a time consuming one unless you have the camera locked down for the shot (even then you still have some work cut out for you). After Effects is a better place to start regardless.

If you do give it shot be sure to post some of the results.

I did a test with the camera locked down. Very easy to do and it worked rather well. I just placed the clips over one another in the timeline and changed the opacity of the clip with the "ghost" to about 35%
