  • Appreciate that Amir.  Here is my project....



    Since my initial post I did figure some stuff out but ran into more issues.  I got the footage to import and display what speed the 2d sequence needed to be changed to.  Thats no longer an issue.  What I am having issues with now is getting the face inserts put on top of the animation and attached to the face based off the tracking data.  


    Thank you so much.

  • Hey Dominique,

    Here is a quick tutorial on how to add a Face inset which is face part to the Face In Video template:

    First in the Objects panel, open the Orthographic Camera and select the Tracked Image(Tracked Image is that image which gets attached to your video)

    Then, in the Inspector panel, just DISABLE the Image component. Make sure NOT to delete it.

    Next, Lets add a Face Inset object by selecting the Add New -> Face Inset in the Objects panel.

    This will add a Face Inset under the Head Binding which we dont want. We need Face Inset to be in the screen space.

    Now select the Face Inset 1 object and then copy the Face Inset component in the Inspector panel by clicking on the gear icon and select Copy.

    After coping the component we can go ahead and delete the Head binding.

    Then, select the Tracked Image object one more time and

     and paste the component by clicking on the gear and select Paste in the Inspector panel as you can see in the gif below:


    Also for your problem that you're not seeing the Frame Rate error it means that is all set for your video.

    Now you can see that you have a Face Inset in the Face In Video template.

    If you want more for eyes and nose you can duplicate the object and set as a children of the Tracked Image object.


    Hope this will help you to fix the problem.

    Have fun creating Lenses,
