    How to make a dragging kind of effect in a video?


      Hello, I liked this effect in a youtube video. (Bebe Rexha - "No Broken Hearts" ft. Nicki Minaj (Official Music Video) - YouTube ) I wan't to know how can we make the drag-like effect at 3:40 - 3:45 time.

      Do we have to duplicate every alternate frame and shift its position for this effect?

          Each copy of the girl is a separate layer with the background removed.

          The center girl with the echo on the arms may be two layers with her head separated and the Echo effect applied to the arms and body.


          The key to success in this kind of an effect is to separate the elements that you want to Echo to separate layers. Ideally you would also remove the background. Then you just fiddle the the number of echoes, the blend modes and the timing.
