OK – I’ll bite. What is a levation?
Levitation? Raise someone above the ground?
There are a huge number of ways to pull of the effect using physical effects and post techniques. The easiest and most convincing methods are used by magicians. Search on the web for levitation techniques.
Far too many ways in a video – what exactly do you need to do, we can then suggest the most appropriate solution. Obviously illusionist's techniques are designed for live audiences. Video can cheat – essentially by compositing two images and moving one, or cutting out part of an image and moving that – so loads of potential ways to do it.
like others said, lot's of ways to accomplish. You could shoot a background plate on your tripod, then film your talent on a green screen. Or you could use physical wires to lift your subject, and then do wire removal in After Effects or another motion editor.
yes I'm using magix pro plus 17 how can I make someone lift off the ground using special effect.
