I am looking for a way to average out face tracking data, and am creating a series of point controls that will hold the averaged data for me. This is a task I will have to do across maybe 20 shots, so I am looking for a fast way to do it. Ideally what I would like is to have a null which I can copy and paste into the different comps and for it to automatically give me my average data.
I was hoping to use the name of the effect (a point slider) to do this for me. Something like this:
(thisComp.layer("FACE_TRACK_01").effect("Face Track Points")(e)+thisComp.layer("FACE_TRACK_02").effect("Face Track Points")(e))/2
Then I could duplicate the point slider effect and rename it for whichever facial feature I need an average for. eg: "Left Eyebrow Inner".
However, I dont seem to be able to find a way to access the effects name. Is there a way?
