I am not sure what this effect is actually called, but I was wondering if anyone might know a couple was I could pull it off. I want to have the same person several times in a single shot, so that it appears that there is a bunch of this person walking around, etc. What are some ways I could do this?

If you're using After Effects, this might help. The basic principle is the same no matter what you're using.

Thanks a bunch, I wasn't sure how I'd do this but I think I can now.

you can do it in (any?) NLE very simply in the same way that old films did it.

Lock off camera.
Just have the talent on one side,
refim the room without moving theb camera.

Don't allow the talent to occupy the same space or cross over

Use a split screen - maybe with a soft edge to stick the two halves together

Or buy a compositing software ;-)
