Cartoonize your face with the Cartoon generative effect.

The generative effect is applied to match the skin and provide a seamless look. A generative effect will always apply to Face 0—the first detected face.

Add Cartoon


Adding multiple Generative Effects objects may slow down the performance of your effect. It is recommended that you limit the usage of generative effects. Multiple generative effects targeting the same facial area should not be used together. For example, because Cartoon applies an cartoon effect to the entire face, it should not be combined with another generative effect.

To add a Cartoon object:

  1. Go to the Hierarchy panel
  2. Click the + Add object button [+]
  3. Go to Generative Effects
  4. Select Cartoon
