Sad Face

Take puppy eyes to the next level with Sad Face! The Sad Face generative effect utilizes generative adversarial networks (GANs) to generate a superficial distressed effect (tissues are not included).

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 Sad Face


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 applies a frown to the face, it should not be combined with Smile.

To add a Sad Face object:

  1. Go to the Hierarchy panel
