Use the Wink generative effect to create a winking effect with generative adversarial networks (GANs).

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 Wink


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 Sad Face manipulates the eyes, it should not be combined with Wink.

  1. Go to the Hierarchy panel
