Ever since Snapchat came out with this, such videos frequently rank among the most trending videos on every conceivable social media platform.

Part 2. 2 Ways to Change Face in Video Online

Changing the face in the video is, no doubt, one of the fascinating video editing experiences. Not only can you swap your looks with your friends and family in real-time, but you can also even switch your face with your favorite celebrities. There are many faces changing software available, ranging from online to desktop applications. However, you must obtain the most appropriate look changing tool for a better experience.

1. Deepfakesweb

Deepfakesweb is probably the best Face Swap tool out there. It is a paid tool with cost-per-video ranging from $15 to $60 depending on how realistic we want the video to be.

The results are astounding, to say the least. The tool is so good that the makers of the tool have introduced deliberate watermarks and other traces of manipulation to clearly know it is a face swap video. The makers also limit the AI engine’s capability to swap faces. 

You can easily use the tool by uploading the video in which the face is to be replaced on left and uploading the face photo or video on the right side. 

2. FlexClip

Flexclip is an online video editor where you can replace the face in a video with other photos or stickers/emojis. You can also put memes instead of the face. 

To edit, simply drag and drop the videos and photos in the timeline. The tool also provides many royalty-free videos to use for free. Go to the Elements section. Drag and drop the emoji you like to the face in the video. Resize if necessary.

You can also use GIFs from Giphy on top of faces. You can export the file to use it as needed.

Disadvantages of the tool 

Flexclip does not have a way to move the GIF or sticker with the face. So, if the face moves around the frame in the video, Flexclip is not a great choice. You can work around it by pasting GIF at the face position in each frame, but it can be tedious.

Another downside of this tool is that, in the free version, you can only download a 480p version. Or you have to download the video with a watermark.

The Flexclip tool does not have face swap capability. It can only replace faces with emojis, photos or GIFs.

Step 4: Extend the Face-off effect to the right sections

By default, the effect is applied only to a small section of the video. Extend the effect to sections of the video where you want to change the face.

Step 5: Use motion tracking if necessary

If the video has the face moving around the frame, you would need to tell Flimora to track the face. This is done using Motion Tracking. Click on the video and choose the “Motion Tracking” icon (the square with a plus in the centre, as in the picture)

You’ll see a motion tracking box on the video preview. Drag the box to the face that needs to be tracked and changed.
