Side Eye

Take side eye to the next level with the Side Eye generative effect. Side Eye utilizes generative adversarial networks (GANs) to make it your eyes move side to side.

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 Side Eye


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 j the same facial area should not be used together. For example, because Wink applies a winking effect to the eye, it should not be combined with Side Eye.

  1. Go to the Hierarchy panel
