    Two tracks with opacity reduced in both so one looks superimposed on the other.

    It's called a HUD (heads up display) effect . It's called that probably because the effect is popularized in video games (especially first person shooters)

    The effect applied to person is called a "holographic" effect - popularized by star wars hologram projection method of communication

    Like TreeTops said - it's basically a composite of different layers, but at least 3 layers are used in that example: background , HUD, hologram

    Use those search terms to look for tutorials on youtube and other tutorial sites

    TreeTops, poisondeathray
    Thanks for the accurate and quick reply
    I have one more simple question,
    what is the text effect at the starting of that video?
    or it is just self made effect?

    I don't think there is a specific name or label for that text effect , but there might be 3rd party plugins that can assist you with those effects and the HUD and holographic effect (there are for after effects, there might be some for vegas as well) . You can do it pretty easily manually

    Examine the frames one by one and reverse engineer it.
