Lizard Man Tutorial Part 2-6

Transform a human into a Lizard Man in After Effects, with Imagineer Systems Mocha and mettle FreeForm Pro. The concept is simple: motion track a face with mocha and map a kimodo dragon texture onto the actor’s face with FreeForm Pro. The tracking information is linked to the FreeForm Pro layer, which has been shaped to fit the face perfectly. It’s like a digital mask, which fits and follows the actor’s movements perfectly. A great way to do a digital prosthetic. Hosted by Ran Ben Avraham, this series of tutorials leads you through the process step-by-step.
