Real-Time Face Tracker
The After Effects Face Tracker is great but, its incredibly slow; to the point it's not even usable with more than a few seconds of footage, when it seems to slow to a crawl. Results from a high spec PC.
An option for the Character Animator Face Tracker to be used within After Effects would be fantastic. It offers significantly more face track points, and tracks in REAL-TIME, with great results.
A real-time face tracker would be very advantageous over the current After Effects Face Tracker for many projects.
I second it.
Either use the tracker from Character animator, or at the very least fix the one in AE.
It gets slower over time.
I start tracking the shot with 4 maybe 5 frames per second, by the time I get to frame 1000 I'm already down to 3seconds per frame. That's 12 times slowdown in 1000 frames!!!!.
The actual number of tracked frames (keys) seams to matter.
The solution is to divide the clip into several layers and track different parts in different layers, so 0-1000 on layer 1, 1001-2000 on layer 2, 2001-3000 on layer 3.
Each layer holds only 1000 keys at max so it kinda works.
Then you have to copy paste the keys back to layer one which is also very slow, but takes a lot less time than finishing tracking all 3000 frames on layer 1 :/
Fiiiiiiiiiix thiiiiiiis :)
