So I've got AE CS5, but have yet to really mess around with Mocha's tracking capabilities. Sean Mullen (VFX artist for Charmed and numerous other TV shows), posted a video showing a video captured face tracked with 2D images that look incredibly realistic.
Can anyone share how Mocha is that much better than the standard AE tracker and how did he make this look like it was shot with makeup on the guy's face??
I simply tracked the facial features and applied a still image from a tree bark. This allowed the texture to lock into place. Then I used Blending Modes and Displacement Mapping to finesse the texture to make it look more believable.
