If you want to see Beauty Box Video in action this is one way of doing it.

Using Mocha to easily create animating masks in After Effects

In this tutorial we use Mocha within After Effects to create animating masks, limiting Beauty Box to just certain areas. LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE

By default the mask within Beauty Box will affect all skin areas. This works great for most situations. However, there are times when you want to retouch only certain areas, like just the face. In this tutorial we use Mocha to do some, uh, 'creative' retouching, affecting just the actress' face!

Using Premiere's tracking masks to isolate cheeks/forehead

Premiere Pro has a new feature that will track the bezier points of a mask. It's really pretty amazing when used with Beauty Box! LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE

Traditionally, retouching just the cheeks and forehead of an actress was something that required a big budget and lots of time. Premiere Pro's new tracking masks make this MUCH easier, requiring a fraction of the time it normally would have. The bezier points track the footage and move with your actress! It's very cool and in this tutorial we show you how it works.

Masking out teeth in Final Cut Pro X

This tutorial talks about how to use CoreMelt's SpliceX Final Cut Pro plugin to mask out problem areas, like teeth. LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE

Occasionally Beauty Box will affect areas that you would prefer it doesn't affect. This can teeth, hair, eyes or other non-skin areas. Creating a mask can be difficult, especially in Final Cut. SpliceX is a plugin for FCP that makes creating and tracking a mask much, much easier. This tutorial goes over the simple steps necessary to make it happen.

Assimilate Scratch: Using Beauty Box Video

In this tutorial we discuss how to set up and use the various features of Beauty Box Video in Assimilate Scratch. Beauty Box has a slightly different layout in Scratch vs. After Effects, so this tutorial shows where everything is and how to make use of the Manual Sampling which is very different than AE. Otherwise, the advanced tutorials that are done in After Effects should translate well to Scratch once you're familiar with the layout of the controls. This tutorial does go over the basics of Beauty Box as well. LEVEL: BASIC
