Remove a face on event

  • Hi Mads,

    This is pretty hard, but you might be able to get something like it working.

    First off, there's an existing lens called Donut Head that does something similar to this, using the space above the user's head to sample from. This works pretty well since the donut provides a good border around the missing area, so there aren't any visible seams between the real part and fake part.

    Covering up the entire head will be a lot harder though because there won't be that border covering up the seam. Maybe you could incrementally blur more and more the closer you get to the seam to disguise the fact that it's there. I think it'll be pretty difficult to make the effect convincing though.

    I hope you figure out something cool! Let me know if you have any specific questions about implementing it.

  • Jacob, Thanks!

    Can you point me in the direction of how exactly to sample from an area of the camera and - I guess - applying it to a sprite?
