Video cloning technique is among top hot editing tricks that professional editors favor. In fact, it just uses picture-in-picture video effects and combines two shots in the same background. That way makes a person (or an object) appear 2+ times simultaneously.

Part One - How to Clone Yourself in a Video via Premiere Pro?

Professional video editors love to use Premiere Pro to make a clone video. Here is an example from Jamie's YouTube:

YouTube: How to clone yourself in a video in Premiere.

  • 1
    Shoot a moving video and keep shooting lights the same.
  • 2
    In Premiere Pro's track editor, cut the video shot to several parts.
  • 3
    Drag some footage/part cuts above the current editing track.
  • 4
    Resize the above track's footage to render picture in picture effects.
  • 5
    Adjust above footage position and make your video feel like one perfect video instead of two dropped videos.
  • Indeed, Premiere Pro is powerful enough to clone a video and render all kinds of video effects & transitions you want for a video. However, it's the tool fitting for only a few high-skilled people - its steep learning curve, complex navigation, plus its pricey subscribing fees are not acceptable for an average user.
