AE character animation templates?
on Mar 2, 2013 at 4:24:43 pm

In a client story board I'm being asked to place a photo of someone's head on a walking cartoon character.  After a bit of Googling I haven't found much.  Any leads out there on such (stock) customizable AE templates of character animation? I think the aim is whimsey so even a stick figure would be fine.  

Thanks in advance.

Paul

You won't find a template for this. It's a custom job. You need to use masking and motion tracking.
