Hey everyone,

I have kind of an ununsual question/request, but would not find anyone else to have this problem:

My after effects is updated to version 15.0.1, but there seems to be no face tracking feature (in the tracker section).

Now I´m wondering, is it my creative cloud plan - Creative Cloud Student and Teacher Edition - that hides some of the new features..

Can anybody help me?

It's in the Tracker Panel. You access the Tracker Panel via the Window Menu. Then you need to draw a mask and select it before the Tracker Panel 'lights up'. Then use the Tracker Panel's "Method" menu to select which of the two Face Tracking feature you want to use. It's important that you first select a Mask for the Face Tracking feature to become available.

Adobe's search function didn't locate this for some reason but it's a how-to for the process described above https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/how-to/face-tracker.html

I have a symilar problem with a different twist. I draw a mask around a face and the Tracker Pannel dose not light up. I see the Tracker Pannel on the right side of the screen but can do nothing with it.
