    Thanks. I enjoyed creating my own version of the same scene whilst following your tutorial. The only thing I did differently was that I didn’t need to key-frame the mask in the way that you did. That is to say: Rather than key-framing the mask over the crisp packet, so that there was a slow "wipe" of the mask across it (whilst it became part of the clone2 layer), I instead inverse masked around the first clone using layer 2 (the layer for clone 2) and made sure the second layer had a later starting time-frame. This meant that as soon as the layer 2 sequence started (clone 2 entering the room) the mask I created for that layer instantaneously replaced the static crisp packet with the second clone’s packet. No mask key-framing necessary in my version 🙂

    Granted that probably won’t always work out that way. I was lucky with the shadow situation etc 😉

    A great introduction to clone interaction. Particularly on the importance of planning the shot sequence in advance.

    Recording the script is a great tip. Oddly enough, I’ve never done that. I choreograph those kinds of shots to music, myself. I think that’s my age showing. I’ve done stuff long enough where easy digital recording–not to mention smartphones–weren’t really an option back in the day (and who wants to deal with microcassette tape?) when I formed some work habits. That was a *facepalm* moment.

    As far as the actual VFX part, hey, masking is masking, right? I miss the days when Ryan Connelly would drop in the "child’s chorus" of "masking tool" in every episode that was a mask effect. 😀

    Have a good NYE, and I look forward to seeing what you and Walter put out in 2018.

    awesome Tobias, i didn’t even think that you just leave the bag and the actor moves and the actor just acts like the bag is gone, i thought you had to somehow match the same position of the bag’s previous position. thank u for sharing this =) Happy New Year!

    Another great lesson, Toby. I finally broke down and started After Effects so I am very glad I found your channel a few months ago. BTW, recording yourself narrating the scene…excellent idea. It’s like having the director give the actor direction while filming. It never occurred to me. Thanks again for the lesson and the project files.

    The clue for how to do the timing, using the pre-recording, was super helpful. I had not figured out how to do that and so had lots of trial and error. One question, if the clones are going to talk to each out this trick won’t work. What do you do in that instance?

    Thank you so much for creating this video and doing such an amazing job! I’ve been searching for awhile on how to get my clone characters to be able to interact and I’m so going to use this trick for my next video! Could you please do a tutorial on how to have your clone characters walk in front of each other? Would be so cool to be able to add that realistic element so then the clone characters actually look even more like individual people even though they aren’t! 😍
