Face Mask Opacity Texture feature not working as expected

  • Hi Zach,

    The opacity texture anchor points seem to be working for me in the latest release (1.6.2). Can you try these steps and confirm that the opacity texture still isn't behaving the way you expect?

    1. Open a new, empty project
    2. Add a new face mask (in the Objects panel, click Add New > Face Effects > Face Mask)
    3. Make sure the face mask is selected.
    4. In the Scene panel, click on the Opacity tab to make sure the opacity mask is being edited.
    5. In the Scene panel, click and drag to select a large section of opacity binding points. Selecting the lower half of the face is a good test set to start with.
    6. Drag these points to the left, right, and bottom of the texture. You should see the mask opacity changing in the Preview panel.

    These steps work for me, but there could be a bug causing it to work differently for you. Can you let me know your results for following the steps listed above?

  • Hi Jacob! This was eventually resolved by painting a custom Opacity Texture and leaving the points unedited. Just wanted to thank you for your help!
