How can I use a mask on a moving object in a scene?

Dec 6, 2012 6:59 PM

I am having difficulting placing a mask on a moving object because there are no position points where I can attach motion tracking points.  My goal is to show something through the mask from a layer underneath.  Any advice would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Robert

    Then animate them by hand or use mochaAE and the mocha Shape effect. Some things simply require manual labor. Of course there may be other options liek using a matte, but you need to explain better then and provide screenshots. We don't even know what version of AE you are using at this point.

    Mylenium is correct in recommending mocha for this.

    Post a screenshot. I bet there's somewhere you can track the actor's face, otherwise try Mocha.  Here's a useful tutorial that I think is exactly what you're looking for: Face replacement with mocha from David Torno

    You can probably use Mathias Möhl Tracker2Mask tool as well, but Mocha is obviously a better solution.
