Moving lips 13 Jul 2017 00:06 #89343

Hi there,

I'm just getting my head round SliceX, TrackX and DriveX. The possibilities seems endless. I've already used some of the features, object removal and tracking a moving hand, and the time that has saved already is awesome.

I have a challenge in my current project which I'm not quite sure about, so thought perhaps floating it here might stir up some possible solutions.

I recorded me reciting a poem of mine close up, so you can only see my lips. I plan to duplicate these lips on parts of my body, so they appear like talking ulcers. I would like them to originate from a stationary source object on the screen and then move onto the face / body of the person in the clip. The thing I'm not sure about is rather than them moving with something, say someone's hand that I could track, they are moving independently, and mutating into more mouths. I've played around with positioning them on the face and body and the effect is exactly what I'm looking for, but I need to get them there.

Any thoughts would be most appreciated.

Then you don't use tracking, you use keyframing of the Position parameters in the FCPX Inspector.

Thanks for your reply. I realised I was overthinking it and came to a similar conclusion as you, so will give that a go.

Practice, practice, practice.

Thanks again. B)
