Animated Double Exposure Effect - Photoshop Tutorial []

►Download Tutorial PSD file:
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to create animated double exposure effect, created by blending a standard image, (typically a person) with a video scene.

The way the result looks depends mostly on the amount of white areas in the image. The best images to be used contain white, or almost white backgrounds. So, if you open an image of a person with a white background, the overlapping video effect will only be visible on the darker areas of the subject, and not on the white background.

In my case, selected photo has a grey background. So i Begin by clipping out the subject from the portrait photograph.

Make Selection closely follow the outline of the person’s profile. Go to Select - choose select and mask.
Begin altering the Edge Detection Radius to bring the hair line into the selection.

Extending the edge selection will also bring in areas of the background around the face and hair.
Select the brush to the Refine Radius tool and paint around the hair line to capture any stray hairs that aren’t yet in the selection.
Copy this new selection from the Background and paste it onto a new layer.

Now copy image and paste it into the working document.
Now the person image contain white background.
I want the image to look straight, so take a free transform tool CTRL + T and rotate the image.We need to increase the contrast, so Duplicate the person cut out layer, and change blending mode to Overlay.

The Over lay blend mode both multiplies dark areas and screens light areas at the same time, so dark areas become darker and light areas become lighter.Open up the Levels adjustment, and begin darkening the image by moving the Input and Output level sliders. Group the layers. Now place the video footage or image sequences. Go to Layer tab – select Video layer and then select new video layer from file. I captured the time lapse sequence of 3 sec long. I will use this sequence for animation. You may use any scenes from, nature landscapes to cities as u wish. or If you want to use a photo instead of a video, then paste your own photo. Change the blending mode of this new video layer to Screen, to render all the dark areas transparent. Double click the video layer to open the blending options window. Hold the Alt key and drag the black slider towards right. By doing this we will partially hide the gray portions and achieve a better blending effect with the person. Normally double exposure effect looks good in black and white.

Now turn on the video mode.To view the animation, open the Timeline from the Window menu.
Trim the timeline to 3 sec long, same as video length.Click the play icon to render files and review.
Check loop playback to play forever.
When your happy with the result, export the animation.
Go to timeline menu options and select render video.

We can also export this animation as GIF, with loop playback for web.
