Hi, I'm working on a film where the main character has to lose much weight, basically going from looking healthy to looking almost malnourished. Rather than insisting the actor lose weight, is there any way to make a person appear skinnier, basically airbrushing them like a model in a magazine, using After Effect?

That would be hard. You could try to shoot chroma and then use Mesh Warp do distort the image, but it depends on the storyboard, how many shots/angles/duration... it could be a lot of work or A LOT of work.

I'm with Ted: doing the effects work on that will be a nightmare in AE. This is the kind of thing that pricey effects houses with big-time effects supervisors take on.
