2. Do not move your camera this is vital start recording then get inside the frame and do something. Save this file
3. Open flash MX (if you do not have it download the trial from www.macromedia.com)
4. Import blank space
5. Create a new layer and make sure its on top and import the videoclip with you in it
6. select the layer and click convert to symbol select graphic as you want to export it as an avi
7. On graphic properties go to loop graphic
8. Now make the graphic 50% transparent
9. export as avi
10. You are now transparent

but toying with transpariencies at movies are a lot easier with Cinelerra - where you don't have to do all that flashy-thing and from begining to end you work on avi's - but way do obtain this is same (just without conversion...) with Cinelerra it would be in simple, load two avi's to diferent layers, on top Layer draw selection, tell Cinelerra to cut what is behind it and leav what is inside... make sure to check some haracteristic points... and process movie to see results
But this is same as in Flash so idea in this tutorial is useful...
PS.: there is mainly one thing - Cinelerra is free (you don't have Linux? Don't wory - you can use Live distribution so you would be able to "go-out" with your Cinlerra even wher you don't have Linux...) while Flash cost about 700$

This is a neat little trick. Thanks for the information. How much does the full retail version of Flash go for these days?
i got the whole sheabang (macromedia studio mx 2004 - including dreamweaver mx 2004, flash mx 2004, coldfusion mx 2004, and fireworks mx 2004) all for free at a rumage sale ... the guy said that he couldnt get it to work and he had just tossed it into the free box...so i took it and installed it and love it
