Hi all,

i'm just about to embark on my first After Effects project.

Can anybody suggest a good tutorial that would allow my to overlay a an image of some bodys face over a movie clip of somebody elses face? This would involve scaling as the movie face gets smaller.

Many thanks

Overlaying one image on top of another is very basic After Effects stuff, so I'm going to start out by recommending that you start here and work your way through everything first.

However, I'll also give you the benefit of the doubt and jump all the way to the other end of the spectrum and point you to the best "tutorial" I've seen yet about replacing one face with another using After Effects.

Thanks Todd, a great example, mine will be much simpler with motion tracking a static picture onto a movie.

Now i know i'm looking for 'motion tracking' there seem to be plently of tutorials out there.

Thanks.

Sorry that I don't have a link, but...

...there's a good two-part tutorial on how a guy made a music video, overlaying a guy's face onto footage from the '90's TV show Golden Girls. He used Mocha AE for tracking, careful masking and lots of color correction.

You might find them on the Mocha web site.

Well, that's what I get for not following and carefully reading all the links in the threads: egg on my face.
