For this Rich Activity, I have selected the Demon Face Warp. My goal is to turn my fellow pupil’s face into something with an exaggerated and shadowed “demonic” look. I chose this tutorial, as it uses many of the previous techniques we have learned, such as expressions and motion tracking and builds on them. As well, it shows how to combine these with new, other effects to create an interesting result. The intent is that I will learn how to do reverse motion tracking, which allows layers and effects to stay on the same parts of an object, while maintaining the object’s shaky footage. I will also learn all about the liquefy tool, which can be used to cause distortions of all kinds, and about why combining the liquefy tool with reverse motion tracking is critical. I will also learn how to use masks to create shadowy effects on things, and it will also have a slight review on expressions. In this tutorial, there are several things that involve colour and contrast changing, and these all tend to use the curves mechanic, and will give a lot of practice with them. There are a lot of masks involved, and it will give insight on the wide range of possibilities for them. A few adjustment layers are used, and these are combined with the masks to create interesting effects. The pick whip receives extensive use throughout, with parenting to have matching keyframes a common use of this function. With the wide variety of techniques used, and not being monstrously difficult, it is a great choice for a tutorial. It also produces an enjoyable end result!
