Face Liquify gives you the freedom to control the proportions of multiple facial and body features.
Add a Face Liquify Object
Add a Face Mask object by clicking the Add button [+] > Face Effects > Face Liquify in the Hierarchy panel.
Adding a Face Liquify object automatically nests Liquify under an object with a Face Binding component.
Starting in Effect House v2.0.0, the Face Liquify object is automatically added to the Face Shape Effects render group in the Hierarchy panel. Learn more about render groups.
Configure a Face Binding Component
In the Hierarchy panel, click the object with the Face Binding component. You can see the Face Binding component in the Inspector panel.
The Face Binding component allows the Face Liquify effect to be applied to the face being tracked. By default, the Liquify object is parented under an object with a Face Binding component.
You can move and unparent, or unnest, the Liquify object in the Hierarchy panel to keep the effect in a fixed position that is relative to the screen.
Use the Which Face dropdown to select the face you want to attach the effect to. The face number assignment is based on the order of detection. The first face detected in the scene will be assigned to 0, the second face detected will be assigned to 1, and so on.
Tracking Target is set to Human by default.
Configure a Liquify Component
Add Liquify to an object by clicking + Add component > Utility > Liquify in the Inspector panel.
Click the Liquify object in the Hierarchy panel. You can see the Liquify component in the Inspector panel.
Edit Liquify in the Scene
You can edit multiple Liquify objects at once in the Scene panel
The center of a Liquify object can be aligned to a blue square on the model face. The blue squares represent the key facial points, like the center of the right eye.
You can also resize a Liquify object.
Radius: Determines the radius of the liquify circle. Use the slider to set the radius to a value between 0 and 3. The default value is 1.
Intensity X: Determines the amount of vertical compression along the x-axis for the liquify circle. Use the slider to set the intensity to a value between -1 and 1. The default value is 0.5.
Intensity Y: Determines the amount of horizontal compression along the x-axis for the liquify circle. Use the slider to set the intensity to a value between -1 and 1. The default value is 0.5.
Liquify Area: Choose what part of the liquify circle the effect is applied to.
- Full (default) enables the Liquify effect on the entire circle.
- Left, Right, Up, and Down enables the Liquify effect on the selected half of the circle.
Adjust a Liquify Object’s Transform
You can adjust the Transform of Liquify, including the values for Position, Rotation, and Scale in the Inspector panel.
You can also adjust the properties of the Liquify component. All modifications will be automatically reflected in the Preview panel.
Use Multiple Liquify Objects
You can add more Liquify objects by right-clicking the Liquify object in the Hierarchy panel and clicking Duplicate to create a copy of the existing entity. Adjust the copy to your liking and rename the layers accordingly.
You can move and resize multiple Liquify objects in the Scene panel as well.
Copy-Paste and Reset Liquify Designs
Once you have created a design that you like, you can replicate the customizations to another Liquify entity. In the Inspector panel, click the More Options button in the upper-right of the component and select Copy. You can then paste in the new entity. You can also restart the design by clicking Reset.
