    Hi
    Does anyone know how to do the Bohemian Rhapsody psychadellic effect, I believe it to be otherwise known as 'Infinite Mirror' effect in either After Effects, or in FCP with people keyed out in greenscreen?

    I've done some searching but found little to no results!

    Thanks all.. looking to recreate these sorts of videos:

    both those effects were made by the output of the camera being fed in to the screen behind the subject.

    Yeah, but I don't have any large screens so I was wondering if we could replicate it if a person was chromakeyed out - thereby having a transparent background by which you would effectively place a filter so replicate the same effect.

    It's a shame we never got an answer for this... I'm looking for this effect too :(

    key/rotoscope your subject, duplicate that layer several times, stack it on the z-axis and move the camera around - no filter needed.

    Exactly - and add to that by shifting each layer by a frame or two after the one in front of it, to simulate the delay you get naturally if you do this with a camera and screen as described by evil_santa.
