Adding a Distorted Face Effect in After Effects

by planetLukeLeave a Comment

This effect was mastered by Andrew Kramer from Video CoPilot in his Demon Face tutorial.  I don't cover his techniques in my video so his tutorial is somewhat of a pre requisite to mine.

I wanted to take it and adapt it to a character, which required a few changes.  Tracking points, green screen, navigating to CS5.5 stabilizer (since it defaults to Warp Stabilizer), and removing the tracking points are some of the tips that I cover in this tutorial.

Batman movie

Since I mentioned the ‘Batman' movie in the tutorial above, I thought it would be good to include it so you can see the effect in a real life application. [tentblogger-youtube ]

So, would you ever use this?
