Hello everyone -- I'm a newbie to character animator and was going through the preview 3 examples. I use a macbook pro and am a creative cloud subscriber. My problem is that when I click on the set rest pose button in the camera window, I don't get the red dots that track my face -- in fact nothing seems to be happening. So I'm not able to experiment at all with the red monster. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I opened the preview 3 examples as instructed from within Adobe After Effects. I'm a teacher and really want to use this with students!!!!! Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Sometimes the dots latch onto background objects (a poster on the wall for example) if it thinks that's closest to a face. The more well-lit and big your face is in the camera, the better.
I haven't personally heard of a technical reason the dots wouldn't appear, but if possible, try it on a different webcam to see if that solves it. You can also double-click your face to set the rest pose as well, or use the 3-line "hamburger" menu above to switch to a different camera.
Hope that helps, if not let us know...
