Create Transparent Ghostly Effects with Mocha & Particle Illusion #halloween

Mary Poplin at Boris FX shows you how to create transparent ghostly effects using Mocha Pro and Particle Illusion to transform an actress into a ghost.

It’s October, so you know what that means!?! Lots of spooktacular tutorials, of course!

Mary Poplin at Boris FX shows you how to create transparent ghostly effects. Because there was no clean plate shot, Mary had to create her own clean plate using the Remove Module in Mocha Pro. She used Photoshop to help with the process to remove the actress from the background. Then, with the help of Particle Illusion, the actress is transformed into a wispy, smoky ghost. Finally, she uses Sapphire Glow to create a transparent glow effect to give it that true spectral look.
