Non rectangular selection of a movie with softblend


    Jan 11 2011 | 11:31 am
    Hi All,
    I was wondering if a non-rectangular selection shader with soft blend (like Max's transition Shader) does exist ?
    I would like to track a face with such shader.
    Do you know about that ?
    Thanks.

      You could make a png alpha mask with photoshop or something and make a gradient with that to simulate the shader..you would just blend it on top...maybe make a mockup of what kind of image you're going for? i assume you want to use facetracking and just blur the edges a bit or something? or have a round selection?

      Hey, thank you !
      You are right about a png alpha mask…
      My goal would be to blur just face edges, not just round selection…
      Wouldn't it be possible to create a mesh thanks to face edges to make the alpha mask ?
      I'm pretty lost right now :)
      Thx.
