You can create a wig effect by adding a Hair Eraser object, followed by a Hair Segmentation object.


With Hair Eraser applied, Portrait Segmentation will still detect the user’s true silhouette.

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.
