Add an Eye Color Object
Add an Eye Color object by clicking the Add button [+] > Face Effects > Eye Color in the Hierarchy panel.
When Eye Color is added, an eye color reference picture will appear on the Scene panel, which will help with previewing your design on different pupil colors.
You cannot modify the Transform of the Eye Color.
Starting in Effect House v2.1.0, the Eye Color object is automatically added to the Face Mask Effects render group in the Hierarchy panel. Learn more about render groups.
Make Your Own Eye Color Texture
Paint the Eye Color
By default, there’s a mask artboard called eye mask [DO_NOT_REMOVE] and two additional artboards: eye reflection and eye color.
To design the eye texture, create a new layer under the artboard that has the same name as the makeup feature you want to customize in Effect House and draw on the newly created layer.
Export to Effect House
Select the artboard you want to export and go to File > Export > Artboard to Files.
Change the export settings to Artboard Content Only, select the Export Selected Artboards checkbox, deselect the Include Background in Export checkbox, and change the File Type to PNG-24. Click Run to confirm and export.
Import an Eye Color Image
You can import an image by clicking the Add button [+] > Import > From Computer in the Assets panel. You can also simply drag the image into the Assets panel.
