Dancing Video Face

  • Hi Neel, 

    We do have a template for adding a face to a static image which is found here:

    Then, to make it work with a video, instead of importing a static image, you'd import either a 2D animation or a video. Follow this guide here for importing 2D animations and videos:

    Finally, the hard part. You are going to need to make a 3D animation that moves the face element in the template in sync with the video. You'll start this 3D animation as soon as the video begins to play. Information on creating and playing 3D animation can be found here:

    It will take some work but it is possible. We'll look into creating a more step by step guide for this in the future. Thanks for the question!

  • Hey Travis,


    Any chance that step by step guide was done? It's a really complex workflow for non-advanced creators so any kind of guide would help a lot, specially for that last part.

  • Hey Moe, we'll try to create a guide for this. As you mentioned, it's a fairly complex workflow so we'll look for a way to simplify it as well. Possibly something we can do as a future template. We'll keep you posted!

  • Thanks Travis, yeah I think having a guide or template for that kind of workflow would help with making this kind of lens as well as give pointers on applying some of the same techniques in other ways!
