    ok... I am realitvely ok at special effects, and I was wondering if there is any type of tutorial for doing the holocam effect in adobe after effects standard? I mean the blue hologram that is used to relay messages throughout thw SW universe.

    please post something if you know something.

    I'm sure there is a way to take an image and change the color to look like the blue transmission from a holo-projector. It would probably involve filming the person to be in the hologram against a green-screen then changing that image, and sticking it into a scene. The best place to check for the answers you seek would probably be in the Fan Films boards.

    Are you looking to do this for a still photo or video?

    Try going to the Fan Films forum. They will have the best source of experts and may have an existing thread for this kind of trick.
