      What is the trick to add the same person multiple times in a scene? I have an impersonator who does 4 characters and i want to shoot them in one scene sitting in a waiting room… they dont have to get up or cross another character. How can that be accomplished? thanks for any advice in advance ….

      Relatively easy as long as your camera is locked down on a tripod. If the camera moves, you’re wasted. Just shoot the scene 4 times – one for each character – all without ever moving the camera.

      Stack all four videos on top of each other in your editing timeline (four video tracks/layers). Crop the left and right of each one appropriately and you’re good to go.

      What are you editing with?

      so you crop the sides of each individual character… i guess while shooting give them space… they are sitting in a typical waiting room…
