Multi-Layer Recording

When you follow the instructions in the Solo Feature Selection Puppeteering section, then you are generating a facial clip expression at one time. However, you may also apply the multi-layer recording method to record the feature motions individually.

  1. Launch the Face Puppet Editor.
  2. Make sure that the Blend data on next recording is activated in order to perform the multi-layer recording.
  3. Go to a time frame when you want to start puppeteering.
  4. Select one feature and record the puppeteering result as a clip. Please refer to the Solo Feature Selection Puppeteering section for more information.
  5. Go to the time frame specified in step 2.
  6. Click the Clear Selection button and select another facial feature in the pane.
  7. Start to puppet and record the motion of this selected facial feature.
  8. When you stop recording, the motion of the selected feature will be layered into the previous facial motion clip.
  9. Repeat Steps 4 to 7 until you are satisfied with the model's expression results. Each recording will blend, layer by layer, the effects to the motion clip.
